Travel Insider Tips for Hannoversch Münden

Hannoversch Münden Overview

Hann. Münden (short for Hannoversch Münden) is the German official name of a town in Lower Saxony, Germany. The city is located in the district of Göttingen (Göttingen vacation rentals | Göttingen travel guide) at the confluence of the Fulda (Fulda vacation rentals | Fulda travel guide) and Werra rivers, which join to form of the river Weser. It has 28,000 inhabitants. It is famous for its old houses, some of them more than 600 years old.

Alexander von Humboldt stated that Hannoversch Münden is one of the seven most beautifully located cities of the world.

The place is first mentioned in the deed of donation of Gimundi to the abbey of Fulda (802). City rights were probably granted during the latter half of the 12th century. The name of the town was originally Münden. The official name was changed to Hannoversch Münden (from the former affiliation with the kingdom of Hanover) in order to distinguish Münden from Minden (Minden vacation rentals | Minden travel guide) (which is similarly pronounced). Later, to avoid confusion with Hanover, the city's name was abrreviated to Hann. Münden. Inhabitants still generally refer to their own town as Münden.

The large Lutheran church of St Blasius (14th-15th centuries) contains the sarcophagus of Duke Eric I of Brunswick-Calenberg (d. 1540)
