On the trail of the “Heiden from Kummerow”
The “Heiden from Kummerow” marveled in awe on their “migration”: “Randemünde looked just like a cosmopolitan world city with its mighty Marien church, its abbey, the powder tower…”
And this “Randemünde” is nothing else but the pristine Angermünde – which every August is the destination of a re-enacted migration from Biesenbrow – which is the real life version of the town Kummerow mentioned in the popular German book by Ehm Welk. With a bit of luck you might be able to spot one of its lovely main characters on your explorations through Angermünde.
Almost two thirds of the Angermünde area are part of the great reservation zones National Park Lower Oder Valley (Nationalpark Unteres Odertal) and the biosphere reserve Schorfheide-Chorin (Biosphärenreservat Schorfheide-Chorin). The city regards itself as a bridge between the two and promises a rich and colourful natural experience for all visitors.
