Süpplingenburg

Süpplingenburg is a municipality of 700 inhabitants (2003) in the district of Helmstedt, Lower Saxony, Germany. It is part of the super-municipality (Samtgemeinde) of Nord-Elm.

The village developed next to a 10th century water castle in the valley of the Schunter river. Until 1173 it was the seat of the Counts of Süpplingenburg, among them Emperor Lothar III. Lothar had the Saint John collegiate church built within the castle about 1130. It was destroyed in the 19th century.
