The village of German foundation is mentioned with certainty in 1533 on the occasion of the Lutheran church visitation. An older document from 1267 about the interest bond from Eberwinsdorf of Heinrich Lord of Gera to the Lausnitz monastery (Klosterlausnitz) is not clear about the village. Belonging to the lordship of Gera, the small local knight's seat was connected to the Zwötzen manor early on. In 1827, the village comprised the manor, 28 houses and 172 inhabitants.

Weißig and Zeulsdorf also belonged to the parish of Dürrenebersdorf. There had been a school in the village since the 16th century. It was closed in the 1960s.

The village was incorporated into Gera on July 1, 1950. It received a kindergarten in 1951. In 1960, the agricultural production cooperative (LPG) Harmonie Type I was founded in the village, which is still very agricultural today - and: Dürrenebersdorf was the first fully cooperative district of Gera.


Langengrobsdorf cannot deny its German origins from the buildings and the name. Langengrobsdorf was first mentioned in documents as Langengrabistorf in a document by Heinrich von Gera dated February 8, 1416 concerning a donation for the All Saints' Chapel in Schleiz.

Until 1650, the feudal and hereditary courts over the village belonged to the manors of Groß- and Kleinsaara, depending on ownership. From this year onwards, the family united both estates in one hand. In 1729, the House of Reuss acquired the manor and converted it into a Kammergut. From then on, the Kammergutsgericht was administered by the Reussian judicial office in Gera.

Langengrobsdorf did not have its own church or school and belonged to the parish of Saara together with Geißen, Groß- and Kleinsaara. The village went to school in Geißen and at times had a parish in Geißen and Großsaara. In 1827, the village had 10 houses and 47 inhabitants.

On July 1, 1950, the village was incorporated into Gera. At the end of 1960, Langengrobsdorf was the only suburb of Gera not yet fully organized as a cooperative.

Around the turn of the century and well into the years around the First World War, Langengrobsdorf had a special reputation in the surrounding area. Because of its terrain and fresh air, it was known as "Reussian Switzerland". Many guests came to relax, especially at weekends and particularly in summer.

Langengrobsdorf is counted from Langengrobsdorfer Straße house number 1 to 52.
