Eisenhüttenstadt is in Brandenburg.
Eisenhüttenstadt was originally founded as Stalinstadt in the 1950s in the east of the then-GDR, to house the employees of an iron works (Eisenhütte) nearby. As Stalin or rather the personal cult geared towards him fell out of favor after Khrushchev took over in Moscow, Stalinstadt was united with the pre-existing city of Fürstenberg to form a new municipality under the de-Stalinized name of "Eisenhüttenstadt". While the town has had the same problems after 1990 as most towns of its size in the former east (unemployment, young people moving out, low birth rates, to name a few), its rather unique history and architecture make it a somewhat "undiscovered" destination for tourism. While the name may be somewhat confusing if you don't speak German, it simply means Iron Hut City and locals often shorten it to "Hütte" in daily conversation.
