Probably the small village was founded in the 12th century. It was the Lobdeburgers who received the Abts' assets from Saalfeld. The settlement was often desolate. Only two houses were inhabited from the 16th century for the field supervision. From the 15th century the church was first mentioned. It was outside the town center. In 1688 she was prepared by Christoph von Kropff to Zeutsch as a barn. The lords of Eichenberg prevented him from using because of the Kirchenlehns. In 1850, the last family left the Töpfersdorf location.

V. and many committed people take care of an upgrading of the region and the ruin together with the desert Töpfersdorf and other monuments of the region. You can see many additional hollow paths, ramparts and fish ponds of the past centuries of the village Töpfersdorf. All in all, a positive development. In the ruin itself, many more collapses have occurred in the last 40 years, probably in the 80s, backup work by private hands took place for the last time.

The Töpfersdorf desert in the municipality of Uhlstädt-Kirchhasel is well hidden in the forest of the Uhlstädter Heide. Only the ruinous walls of the church of the former village remain, which are supported by massive wooden beams. It is believed that this village was founded in the 12th century. You can marvel at the bell of the former Töpfersdorfer church in front of the Niederkrossner church.

The ruin is slowly falling apart due to the weather and hikers climbing the walls or geocaching. The association Saalleiten makes every effort to preserve money and asks hikers to handle the ruin with care and to neither walk on it nor climb on it.

The remains of this former pilgrimage church have suffered a lot and are now to be preserved through appropriate measures. Unfortunately, the wooden scaffolding and red walk-up tapes necessary for this do not give me the wonderful, peaceful feeling that I had the first time I was here. But I am full of hope.
