History[edit]

Norderstedt was created by the merger of four towns on 1 January 1970: the towns of Friedrichsgabe and Garstedt, both belonging to the district Pinneberg, and the towns of Glashütte and Harksheide, both belonging to the district Stormarn. The newly created city was assigned to the district Segeberg.
