Alfeld is a town in Lower Saxony, Germany. Located on the Leine river, it is the second biggest city in the district of Hildesheim in southern Lower Saxony and part of the Metropolitan region Hannover-Braunschweig-Göttingen-Wolfsburg. Alfeld is a member of the Leinebergland region and on the German Timber-Frame Road.
The town was founded before 1214, with the name ‘Alvelde’ recorded in 1214, 1221, and 1233. The toponymic element “-feld” means “open area”, “an undeveloped, open field”, or “an untilled field”. “Al-” likely derives from the Indoeuropean root “el-/ol-” meaning “water”, “damp”, or “flowing”.
