"Demmin House" refers to the ruins of a Pomeranian castle and a neighboring manor house, located at the confluence of the Peene and Tollense rivers, on a completely isolated but natural elevation.
Around 1850 the manor house "Haus Demmin" was built for the Vorwerker landowner von Podewils. Later, Mr. Hans-Joachim von Rohr used the house as a manor house until 1945, after which it was a boarding school for the secondary school. After the town gave the building to the von Rohr family for a symbolic price in 1991, it was frequently the target of destruction. In 1997 it burned down to the outer walls. Since 2004, "Haus Demmin" has been left to the Hanseatic city by the von Rohr family. The grounds are to be transformed into a public park. This uniquely situated historical site is to be preserved for the people of Demmin and the city's guests. To this end, the castle ruins behind "Haus Demmin", dating from the 12th and 13th centuries, where the dukes of Western Pomerania resided, must also be secured. In 1128 Bishop Otto of Bamberg met here on his II missionary journey with the Pomeranian Duke Wartislaw I. In the middle of the 17th century the tower was blown up. Thus, the whole complex will remain visible with the interesting historical background for a long time.
