About this picture

Ramin is a municipality in the district of Vorpommern-Greifswald in the southeast of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania (Germany). The community belongs to the office Löcknitz-Penkun with seat in the community Löcknitz .


The area of ​​the municipality of Ramin lies between the Randowbruch ( Brandenburg state border) in the west and the border with the Republic of Poland in the east. Located in the ground moraine area of ​​the Pomeranian stage of the last glacial period , the municipal area is characterized by the presence of numerous formerly moored areas. The Krebssee and the Rötsee are among the smaller lakes within the municipality . Another lake, the so-called Holzsee, has silted up due to the amelioration measures of the past century and is now only recognizable by the reeds. It was located between the places Ramin and Retzin and had an area of ​​over 1.5 hectares. The Krebssee and the already silted up Holzsee form deeper depressions in formerly moored areas. When the moors were drained for agricultural purposes and drainage ditches were built, their water levels finally fell.

Ramin is surrounded by the neighboring communities Plöwen and Blankensee in the north, Lubieszyn in the east, Grambow in the southeast, Glasow in the south and Brüssow , Bergholz (point of contact) and Löcknitz in the west.

Community structure

Living spaces
Bismark with the districts Gellin, Hohenfelde, Grenzdorf and Linken as well as the residential areas Neuenkrug and Marienhof were incorporated as districts after Ramin on January 1, 2004.



Ramin was a Slavic local foundation and called itself Rambyn and Rambin (most likely interpretation: Slavic ramen for timber).
Since the 14th century the manor village has been the ancestral seat of the Pomeranian noble family von Ramin for more than 600 years . A Unon by Ramin was first mentioned in a document in 1188 . In 1280 the name Otto de Rambyn was found on a seal of a document.
The stone church dates from the 13th century. The single-storey manor house was built in the middle of the 18th century on the vaulted cellar of a previous building. During the Nazi era, it served as a leadership school for the Hitler Youth and was a children's home from 1945 until 2003/04. In 1928 the chemist and university professor Friedrich Wilhelm Semmler acquired the manor and leased it to Pommersche Saatzucht GmbH .
In 2000 a rest area was created in the village.


The early Gothic stone church dates from the 13th century. On July 1, 1950, Retzin was incorporated. The old cobblestones were covered with a concrete road in 1985. The Retziner Straße from Retzin to Löcknitz also consisted of 2.5 m wide field stone paving until 1991. It was replaced by a wider asphalt road by 1992.

Retzin expansion

The Slavic Retzin castle wall on the southern bank of the Leichensee , between Löcknitz and Retzin-Expansion, is part of a castle complex that was located there in the 8th to 12th centuries. In early German times, a high castle hill (tower hill) was built within the Slavic wall. The ground monument is remote, but is very well preserved.


The place belonged temporarily to the Uckermark until 1818 , but then again to Pomerania. The manor house with park dates from the middle of the 19th century. In 1928 the 477 hectare estate was owned by Hans Malue.


The village was separated from new leftists after the Second World War, today Lubieszyn in the Polish Powiat Policki . Until 2003 it belonged to the municipality of Bismark.
