The Winter Family in St. Lucas



Bitburg is approximately 16 miles northwest of Trier and 30 miles northeast of Luxembourg. In 1262, the castle gained municipal rights. In the middle of the tenth century the city came under the county of Luxembourg (later duchy), and in 1443 under the county of Burgundy. After 1506 the place belonged first to the Spanish Netherlands and from 1714 to the Austrian Netherlands. In 1794 the city came under French administration, and in 1798 became the principal place of a canton of the newly-created Département des Forêts. This led to a short lived economic upturn, and Bitburg received among other things a court and a land registry.
In 1815 by the resolution of the Congress of Vienna, Bitburg was transferred to the Kingdom of Prussia, where until 1822 it belonged administratively as district town to the province of Niederrhein, and afterwards to the Rhine province.
On 24 December, Bitburg was 85% destroyed by air raids, and later officially designated by the Americans as a "dead city". Subsequently, Luxembourg soldiers occupied the city, replaced by the French from 1955. In 1965 a North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) base was opened under American leadership. At the end of the 1980s, the French withdrew their last troops and NATO took over the former French barracks. After the First Gulf War large parts of the USAF 53rd were moved into the larger Spangdahlem base. In 1994, NATO finally quit most of Bitburg for the airport. Bitburg has circa 14,112 citizens. The biggest company is the Bitburger Brauerei, one of the largest beer manufacturers in the world. Bitburger Bier is a major sponsor of the German soccer team.
