The castle of the Schauenburgs (Counts of Schauenburg and Holstein), built in 1311 and known as the ''Hatzburg'', was located in Holm (Holm, Pinneberg) which is today a small village close to Wedel. That same year Adolf VI, Count of Schauenburg and Holstein-Pinneberg signed a peace treaty in which he promised the rulers of the city of Hamburg that there would be no harm coming from the Hatzburg.
