Abstract. The measurement series of the 3 geomagnetic observatories span over 130 years, starting in 1890. It is one of the longest, almost uninterrupted series of recordings of the Earth’s magnetic field. Data users frequently emphasize the high quality of the data and its significance for geomagnetic base research. Very well-known outstanding geomagnetism scientists as Max Eschenhagen, Adolf Schmidt, Julius Bartels, Gerhard Fanselau and Horst Wiese directed the observatories during their existence. This paper describes the history of the Seddin Observatory, which was in operation from 1907 until 1932.

Short summary
Due to anthropogenic disturbances on the Potsdam Magnetic Observatory a sub-observatory was installed in 1907 at the village of Seddin. Only variometer recordings were performed in Seddin. The launch of the DC powered service of the Berlin suburban railways in 1928 influenced the observations in Potsdam and Seddin. The absolute measurements were moved to Seddin and a new observatory was planned in Niemegk. Seddin Observatory was closed in 1932.
