HistoryEdit

After the municipal councils of the municipalities of Mohlsdorf and Teichwolframsdorf had taken the decision to dissolve the municipalities and to merge into a single rural municipality, the two mayors signed the territorial change agreement on 13 January 2011. The merger also requested that the contract with the city of Berga, effective from 1 January 2008, be canceled. The project was initially rejected by the Interior Committee of the Landtag of Thuringia.[2] After new advice, the Landtag agreed on 16 December 2011 to the formation of the rural municipality.
