Location of Bargfeld in Schleswig-Holstein

Bargfeld (Danish Bjerremark) is a street village of the municipality of Sörup in the district of Schleswig-Flensburg, which has a small extension with the road Quern-Bargfeld to the municipality of Steinbergkirche.

Location

The street village is located a few hundred yards north of the village of Barg. At the beginning of the village (Location) lies the house Petersburg (Danish Petersborg[1]) towards the Kappelner Straße.[2] From Groß-Quern the village is directly accessible to the west, via the road Quern-Bargfeld.

Background

The naming is based on the neighbouring village of Barg. Apparently Bargfeld was originally a field area of the said village.[3] Bargfeld consisted of just three crofts around 1837.[4] On a quite detailed Danish map from 1857/58 the village was already listed as “Bjergemark” with some of its farms.[5] In 1863 the village was also to be found on another map of the Flensburg area under the name “Bargfeld”.[6] Also on the map of the Preußische Landesaufnahme around 1879 the place was again to be found under the name “Bargfeld”.[7] Incidentally, the house Petersburg on the northern edge of Barg still served as an inn in the 19th century.[8] In 1970 twenty inhabitants were counted in Bargfeld.[9] In today’s time the already mentioned house Petersburg serves as a private house.[10] At the end of the 1990s until his death, the artist Reimer Riediger, who is known for his painting of the water tower Kiel-Neumühlen-Dietrichsdorf, for example, lived there.[11]
