'''Bad Oldesloe''' ({{IPA-de|ˈbaːt ˌɔldəsˈloː}}) is a town located in the northern [[Germany|German]] state of [[Schleswig-Holstein]]. It is the capital of the district of [[Stormarn (district)|Stormarn]].
The area has been inhabited since [[Mesolithic]] times. The flint tools found here from that era (6000–4500 BC) are clearly defined and known as the ''Oldesloer Stufe''. For a number of years in the 18th Century the [[Moravian Church]] had a Congregationcongregation in Bad Oldesloe. It was called "''Pilgerruh''", i.e. "Pilgrims' Rest". It was given up because of difficulties with the Danish Church authorities. At that time, the [[Duchy of Holstein]] was ruled by the kings of [[Kingdom of Denmark|Denmark]] within the [[Holy Roman Empire]].
On April 24, 1945 the town was heavily bombed by the [[Allies of World War II|Allied]] forces in the final days of the [[World War II|Second World War]] operations in Germany. 300Three{{nbsp}}hundred buildings were dropped downdestroyed, and 706 people were killed as a result of the operation<ref>{{cite news |last= Kuhlmann-Schultz|first= Kerstin|date= 10 September 2014|title= 24.
