Saltworks Sülbeck

Short facts

  • Einbeck

Saltworks Sülbeck offers interesting insight into the salt extraction process.

Saltworks Sülbeck was founded in 1686 and is located at 6 kms from Einbeck. Sülbeck is situated half-way along the Leine flood retention reservoir (polder).

In 1780
 there was a fire in Sülbeck, but the saltworks were not damaged. The drilling rigs of the saltworks were built in 1865 and 1882 and the salt water reservoir also exists since 1882. Both, the drilling rigs and the salt water reservoir are technical monuments since 1984.

At the end of the 19th century
there were bores in a depth of 400 metres to increase the economic efficiency of the saltworks. Until 1909 there was a harbour from that salt was shipped over the so-called salt ditch to the river Leine. Salt was manufactured in the saltworks until the mid-50s.
