Remains of this "Burg" have not yet been found.In 1872/73 the railroad between Buchholz in der Nordheide and Lüneburg which still runs through Jesteburg was built.During an allied air raid on nearby Hamburg in January 1943 incendiary bombs where dropped on Jesteburg, several buildings where destroyed. On April 19, 1945 the railroad bridge was blown up by the Wehrmacht to slow the advance of British troops.Between 1933 and 1945 the population of Jesteburg nearly doubled, mostly due to refugees.In 1986/1987 the Heimathaus was built on the Niedersachsenplatz.
