Germering

4.7
Germering is a large town of approx. 38,000 within the district of Fürstenfeldbruck, in Bavaria, Germany. It is directly adjacent to the city of Munich and borders it to the west.HistoryThe area of Germering has an old history attested by findings of burial mounds of the New Stone Age and the Bronze Age, as well as a "Villa rustica" built by the Romans. There was a trade route through the city with numerous brick kilns. After their discovery a glass roof was erected over one so one can still view it.Germering was first reliably mentioned about 859-864 A.D. In those days it was still known as Kermeringon, but apparently it was formerly mentioned under the name Germana vel admonte. Unterpfaffenhofen, the south-west part of Germering, was first named in a charter dated 1190, but both villages remained small and rural until they experienced several significant growths in population during the 20th century.During World War II, a subcamp of the Dachau concentration camp was located in the town.In 1978, the two independent towns Unterpfaffenhofen and Germering were merged to present-day Germering. The new city coat of arms was created in 1981 by Karl Haas, who incorporated the coats of arms of both the two former boroughs.Local profilesThe Biedermeier era artist Carl Spitzweg was born in 1808 in the town-district Unterpfaffenhofen.The popular German band Sportfreunde Stiller is from here.
