Reinfeld was founded in 1186 at the instigation of Lord Adolf III. of Schauenburg supported by the relocation of cistercianmonks from the Abbey of Loccum to Reinfeld. The Monks built many ponds to raise carps. The Abbey of Reinfeld developed into one of the most profitable Abbeys in northern Germany due to the genuine trading mentality and entrepreneurial spirit of its Abbots. Transoverseas Trade prides itself to follow this tradition by successfully trading all kinds of chemical, plastic and pharmaceutical raw materials and to further contribute to economical development of the Reinfeld region.

Further to the Abbey a castle got erected in 1599. In history the Reinfeld-Castle got demolished in 1775 and its briks were recycled to build an administrative building, the Reinfeld-Forstamt (Forestry Office). Today the Forstamt is a listed landmark which is continuously supported by Transoverseas Trade.

From 1762 to 1862 Reinfeld became a part of Denmark due to the fact that the Duke of Plön died without having children and therefore his Duchy got transferred to Frederik V. King of Denmark.


Did you know that the German poet Matthias Claudius (1740 – 1815) was born in Reinfeld?
