Geografie and traffic
the city lie in the Vorpommer low country at the confluence of the rivers Peene, Tollense and Trebel nearby the Kummerower of lake. By the min the holidays roads Hanse route and German avenue road lead.
the local parts belong to city arrangement to the min
the area east of the min belonged to the ranges into those oderabwärts the Neolithisierung already with volume ceramic(s) ( 5,500 - 4,900 v., taken place. Chr.) penetrated. Certification of the funnel cup culture are the 119 Megalithanlagen, which are to be proven in the circle area. Of56 is kept to them at least still partial. The predominant number of it are 37 Grossdolmen. That also still 6 Urdolmen kept show, which are here one of those regions, in which the equipment construction had its roots. For the followingTime are characteristic the grave hills and the bowl stones, from which the circle exhibits 12. In the morastigen forests around the min there were already in 8. Century slawische settlements. In the struggle of the Slawen and Franconias for this region, throughthe crossing of rivers and later also trade routes very attractive was, developed first a border castle, those by liutizischen trunks in 8. Century was established to the name “house the min” received later.
In a legend around house the min one speaks oftwo princesses, who established this castle. These insured itself mutually: “Dat Hus is DIN and min!” Therefore one called it first the Hus DIN min, from which the name: House the min to have developed is.Apart from this legend it means that the minits name to the Slawen owes. Derived from the term “timänie”, which means in Slawi as much as “morastige area”.
Soon a commercial centre developed in the protection of the castle. The contemporary chronicler Adam of Bremen described 1067 this in a report on a journey as“important city”. Around 1236 a city with gitterförmigem road system was put on according to plan, which besides with one wall ring and five gates to surround became. Only little later, i.e. between 1236 and 1249, the min received Lübi right.
1611the Peene is navigable, functioned the city as place of transshipment of mostly agricultural products. In the year 1283 the min of the Hanse joined and allied themselves at the beginning 14. Century with Stralsund, grab forest and Anklam to the “four-standard ware “. 1452 succeededit these cities to achieve due to the herzogliche “golden privilege “large power and urban liberty. Due to strong competition made of England and Holland the Hans federation however finally broke and the min separated 1607 from the Hanse .
Also the dreissigjährige war did not make around the min an elbow and in such a way occupied in the year 1631 Sweden under Gustav Adolf the city. Against the succession Pommern and the min were therefore awarded as Reichslehen and independent province Sweden. In the then following fight for the recuperation Pommerns had to take those from Sweden off, but by FE storages andthe attempt of the brandenburgischen cure prince to acquire itself Vorpommern the min was destroyed to three quarters.
during the large Nordi war (1700 - 1721) came it for eight months under Russian crew. Occasionally here personalities resided such as Peterthe large one and Katharina I. In peacetime of Stockholm 1720 then the area to including the min fell to Prussia, to which it belonged up to its dissolution.
The min is former location of a Ulanen - regiment.
The processing of the events to 30.April and 1. May 1945 was the subject of different reports on the occasion of 60. Anniversary of the end of war. A fact is that the city the min, similarly as grab forest, which was combatless handed over the Red Army first. Nevertheless it is in the course of the invasionthe Red Army come to a mass self massenselbsttötung and victims by actions of the Red Army under the population. Altogether about 900 humans died.
It is proven that it due to the destruction of the Peene bridges by the taking off German troops tooaccumulating the advance of the Red Army into the min came. Likewise it is proven by time witnesses that it came in large number to rapes and acts of violence by soldiers of the Red Army. Many humans looked for for it from fear free death anddrowned themselves in the Peene and in the Tollense. The majority of the city center, in particular the area around the market place, grown historically, by the Red Army were destroyed approximately. The city hall was only restored in the years after the reunification.
ThoseVariant that acting the Red Army was a retaliation action, after a Demminer pharmacist had invited and thereby had poisoned several officers of the engaged Red Army to the Umtrunk from historians today as legend regarded. The processing of history turned outwith difficulty, since the GDR historiography did not have interest in atrocities of the Red Army and the destruction attributed briefly Demmins to the fighting before end of war.

culture and objects of interest
- Findling “large stone” on the monastery mountain length 8.2 m, width 6 m, height of 5.2 m = 133 m ³ = 360 tons (granite).
to the objects of interest the small city center with the pc. becomes. Bartholomaei church counted. The most popular motive for photo of the Hanseatic city is the view of the Hans quarter on the other side of the Peene with Hans bank (a beautiful, but it denzentralen business centre that no moreis strongly frequented) and the Bartholomei church in the background. The moreover one are worth seeing: The small, at the beginning 20. Century a baroque, reconstructed built Maria rose wreath/ring church, with the ensemble concerning town construction of the Schillerstrasse, fresh house in the Clara Zetkin road, the Luisentor and in such a way specifiedRed school. The attempt is interesting to reconstruct the historical market place whereby investment means are missing, which leads to the fact that in the townscape some building gaps gape. In other place old built volumes were removed due to of emptying and. Most of these settled surfaces lietoday broke. Otherwise large part of the old part of town after the destruction of the Second World War by the then modern plate building method were replaced. These extend also towards the east toward Jarmen. Here the largest Demminer development area is settled in slab method.
