Jüterbog becomes Saxon

With the border drawn in 1680 between Saxony and Prussia, Jüterbog fell under Saxon rule, thus losing a large portion of its ancestral trading territory. The new sovereigns tended little to the town which was remotely located from the royal households.

Prussia and Jüterbog

On August 29, 1756 Frederick the Great marched into Jüterbog with his army, prompting the Seven Years’ War. The citizens were forced to supply food and housing to the military. Months after the war ended in March 1763, the returning Prussian troops ravaged through Jüterbog, impoverishing the town. 

A weavers’ colony founded by Frederick II in Zinna and the slowly emerging industrial town of Luckenwalde began to rival with the Saxon town of Jüterbog. Heavily relying on trade, Jüterbog’s economy soon collapsed which caused the town to fall into poverty.

During the Bavarian war of succession from 1778/79, Saxony and Prussia fought alongside each other, however, the town once again was forced to endure Prussian billeting. 

Historic town centre

Jüterbog's historic centre has preserved streets which exude closed spaces. Examples are the bourgeois houses from the 18th and 19th century, remnants of historic booths in the suburbs, numerous towers, churches, and three town gates.
