Wasbek is a municipality, directly west of Neumünster, in the district of Rendsburg-Eckernförde, in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.

Geography[edit]

Wasbek lies directly west of Neumünster. In the west, the park Aukrug borders the municipality. In the east runs the Federal Highway 7 from Hamburg to Flensburg through the village area and is on the Neumünster-Mitte exit. The Bundesstraße 430 from Lütjenburg to Schenefeld (Federal highway 23) runs from east to west through the municipality. The village is also connected to the Nordbahn, on the Neumünster–Heide rail line. The bus line 9 connects Wasbek and Wasbek-Bullenbek with Neumünster.

The location of Wasbek is south of the municipality of Timmaspe or Krogaspe, but north of Ehndorf, and east of Aukrug (see regional map at: Rendsburg-Eckernförde).

Politics[edit]

On 15 June 2008, Wasbek exited from the county Aukrug (Amt), and it is now an administrative community with the city of Neumünster, which handles administration for the municipality.

Community representation[edit]

Of the 17 seats in the municipal council, the CDU and the SPD, since the 2008 local election, have six seats each, the electoral community BMW has 3 seats, and the FDP has two seats.
