Hollandgänger

After the Thirty Years' War, from about 1650 to 1914, Hollandgänger were migrant workers, who, driven by Social necessity, went from the economically weak regions of Germany to the Netherlands in order to work there and to provide a much needed income for themselves and their families Families. Migrant workers who moved to West- or Ostfriesland were also referred to as 'Frieslandgänger'.
There were Hollandgänger in all kinds and shapes. Seasonal workers grasmaaiers (hayers) and turfgravers (peatdiggers). Traders (Tödden) like scharensliepers (scissorgrinders) and marskramers (merchants), who eventually became the founders of large retail chains (C & A, Dreesmann, P & C, Kreyemborg, Lampe, etc.). The 'Geesjes', farmgirls from Westphalia who rented themselves as maids. And there also were workers for heavy shipyard and excavation. They by far were not all seasonal workers; many married and settled forever in the Netherlands. Of course, these immigrants also took parts of their culture and habits to the Netherlands, such as the Christmas tree and the pilsener beer. Many of this Hollandgänger came from the vicinity of Osnabrück (Westphalia). The Osnabrückerland consisted largely of peat and marsh plains (Moorfläche).

Hollandgänger waren er in allerlei soorten en maten. Seizoensarbeiders (grasmaaiers en turfgravers). Handelaren (Tödden) zoals scharensliepers en marskramers, die uiteindelijk de grondleggers van grote winkelketens werden (C&A, Dreesmann, P&C, Kreyemborg, Lampe etc). De 'Geesjes', boerendochters uit Westfalen die zich verhuurden als dienstmeisje. En ook arbeiders voor het zware sjouw- en graafwerk. Het waren lang niet allemaal seizoensarbeiders; velen trouwden en vestigden zich voorgoed in Nederland. Hoewel deze arbeidstrek naar Nederland al na de 30-jarige oorlog ontstond, kwam het in de 18e eeuw pas goed op gang en duurde het tot in het midden van de 19e eeuw. Uiteraard namen deze immigranten ook hun gebruiken mee die later in Nederland inburgerden zoals de kerstboom en het pilsener bier. Veel van deze Hollandgänger kwamen uit de omgeving van Osnabrück (Westfalen). Het Osnabrückerland bestond grotendeels uit veen- en moerasvlaktes (Moorfläche)
