Sauensiek is a municipality in the district of Stade, Lower Saxony, Germany.

Location[edit]

The Litberg, the highest point in the district of Stade, lies within the municipality of Sauensiek. It has a height of 65 metres above sea level and has been designated as a protected area.

History[edit]

Sauensiek belonged - as to its government - to the Prince-Archbishopric of Bremen, established in 1180.[2] In religious respect, however, Sauensiek formed part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Verden until after 1566 its incumbent bishops lost papal recognition, except of a last Catholic bishop from 1630 to 1631, respectively.[2] In 1648 the Prince-Archbishopric was transformed into the Duchy of Bremen, which was first ruled in personal union by the Swedish Crown - interrupted by a Danish occupation (1712–1715) - and from 1715 on by the Hanoverian Crown. The Kingdom of Hanover incorporated the Duchy in a real union and the Ducal territory became part of the new Stade Region, established in 1823.
