Deutschneudorf is situated next to the border to the Czech Republic in the valley of the Schweinitz river, downstream from Nová Ves v Horách, it is a dispersed settlement typical for the upper regions of the Ore Mountains. The villages of Deutschkatharinenberg and Oberlochmühle, located downstream on the Schweinitz, Brüderwiese, located upstream on the Schweinitz tributary Mühlgraben, Deutscheinsiedel, northeast of the latter, have been incorporated administratively; the municipality is traversed by state road S214, which meets in Deutscheinsiedel with Saxon state roads S207 from Sayda and S213 from Seiffen, with Czech state road 271 from Litvínov. First mining activities in the area of the municipality are reported from about 1514. August Rohdt, owner of smelting works in Grünthal was awarded the mines Fortuna and Pallas in 1620, had an iron furnace built in 1637 to supply the wire drawing mill in Rothenthal.

The settlement in an area, nearly depopulated after the Thirty Years' War and a plague outbreak is first mentioned in a document of 1651 as Naudorff unterm Catherbergk and had only three houses in 1657. Protestant refugees from St. Katharinaberg settled on clearings and were welcomed as skilled workers. A teacher is first reported in 1718, the church is completed in 1736 and the schoolhouse in 1741. In 1802 Deutschneudorf becomes an independent church parish; the voluntary fire department is established in 1875, the municipal offices are built in 1924, an open-air swimming pool in 1936. In 1927 the Olbernhau-Grünthal–Deutschneudorf railway is opened. Oberlochmühle is incorporated into Deutschneudorf on 1 April 1939. In 1944/1945 Wehrmacht units establish a depot for stolen art. A forced march of German-speaking people expelled from Chomutov on 9 June 1945 which caused many deaths led through Deutschneudorf and is commemorated in a monument. Passenger traffic on the railway from Olbernhau ceased in 1966, the line was closed to freight in 1969 and dismantled in 1971.

A central drinking water supply is built from 1966 to 1970. The community of Deutscheinsiedel joins Deutschneudorf on 1 January 1999. Deutschneudorf was one of the first places to suffer inundations during the 2002 European floods; the municipality was known as the site of a dig for Gold stolen by Nazi Germany in World War II. Radar scans of an abandoned copper mine suggested the presence of a large amount of dense metal believed to be too dense to be copper. On 28 February 2008, it was reported by CNN and other media outlets that digging had halted due to a disagreement between the two leaders of the dig, it has been speculated that the contents of the Amber Room may be found in this mine.

Date and time notation in Croatia

Croatia uses the day-month-year date notation and both the 24-hour and the 12-hour clock for expressing time of day. In Croatian language, dates are written using the day-month-year format; the month can be represented by an Arabic or Roman ordinal number. Ordinal numbers are always separated by spaces; the genitive case is used for the month name, but the nominative case is often seen in colloquial use.17. Ožujka should be spoken sedamnaestog ožujka. Leading zeroes in dates should be omitted in non-technical situations, the names of months and days of week are only capitalised at the beginning of a sentence; the week starts on Monday, while the weekend consists of Sunday. In formal and written language, the time of day is expressed using the 24-hour clock. Hours and minutes are separated using either a full stop. Leading zeroes should only be used except in tables, on electronic displays etc.. In informal use in speech, the 12-hour clock is used. However, instead of the English "a.m."/"p.m." system, descriptive phrases are used in cases of ambiguity, e.g. ujutro "in the morning", prijepodne "before noon", poslijepodne "afternoon", navečer "in the evening"
