The Trittau village dates back to the 12th century. It was first mentioned in 1167 in a document of Duke Henry the Lion. In those days it was situated close to the Hamburg - Rostock and Hamburg - Lübeck trade routes.
The village then consisted of a Saxon part (Groß-Trittau) and a Wagrian part (Klein-Trittau). In 1326, a castle was built to defend the region and the trade route against the Scarpenberg knights from nearby Linau castle.
