Aumühle is a German municipality in Schleswig-Holstein, about 21 km east of Hamburg.


Aumühle lies on the river Bille in the Sachsenwald, the largest forest in Schleswig-Holstein.


In 1350 Aumühle was first recorded as "Au-Mühle" (Mill on the Au).

In 1871 Kaiser Wilhelm I of Germany gave the Sachsenwald to Otto von Bismarck in recognition of his services to Germany.

In 1884 a train stop "Aumühle" on the railroad Hamburg-Berlin was created, the construction of a train station started in 1909. Friedrichsruh station in neighbouring Friedrichsruh was opened in 1846, and was later often used by Otto von Bismarck.

Karl Dönitz, last President of Nazi-Germany, moved to Aumühle after his release from Spandau Prison in 1956. He remained there until his death.
