More about the History of Germering

During World War II, a subcamp of the Dachau concentration camp was located in the town. The city coat of arms was created by Karl Haas in 1981. He put it together by the city coats of arms of the boroughs of the city, Germering and Unterpfaffenhofen. Germering was for sure first mentioned about 859-864 A.D. Back then it was still known as Kermeringon. But it is said that it was already mentioned before under the name Germana.vel.admonte. Unterpfaffenhofen, the south-west part of Germering, was first named in a charter in 1190.

But Germering has a far older history. There were findings of burial mounds of the New Stone Age and the Bronze Age, as well as the Villa rustica built by the Romans. There was a trade route through the city on which were numerous brick kilns. After they were found they put a glass roof over one of them so one can still have a look at it.
