middle Ages

City wall with mill gate

There was an old Slavic castle complex near the present-day settlement. In the vicinity of this castle, the town of Sterneberch was planned with a grid-like road network in a slightly elliptical ground plan around 1230 to 1250 . In 1248, Prince Pribislaw I of the Parchim-Richenberg line granted the Sternberg settlement town charter . In 1260 it is mentioned as an oppidum . In 1256 Sternberg came to the Principality of Mecklenburg, became a country town in Mecklenburg and was represented as such on state parliaments until 1918 as part of the towns of the Mecklenburg District . In 1288 the Heilig-Geist-Hospital was mentioned, which burned down in 1659. The construction of the early Gothic church began around 1300. At the turn of the year 1308/1309 a big city fire broke out. In 1322 the tower was added to the church. In 1310 Sternberg became the favorite residence of Prince Heinrich II (the Lion) of Mecklenburg. He died in his Sternberg residence in 1329, but was buried in the Doberan Minster . The city flourished during his reign. His wife, Princess Agnes, who Sternberg received as Wittum and called herself Mistress von Sternberg, was buried in the Sternberg Church in 1345. In 1350 Albrecht II pledged the bailiwick over town and country Sternberg to a Nicolaus Kardorf and his children . In 1352 the sons of Henry the Lion divided the country; Sternberg came to Mecklenburg-Stargard and was temporarily the residence of Duke Johann I. In 1366, Sternberg became a "land of peace" after a peace agreement . Around 1392 Johannes' sons again divided the Duchy of Stargard, and Johann II (Lord von Sternberg) chose Sternberg as the residence of the states Sternberg and Fürstenberg. The Vogtei Sternberg with the Fürstenhof was pledged to the von Plessen family in 1425 . In 1450 the plague raged in town. In 1468 Duke Henry IV the Fat besieged the city, but the city was victorious. In 1471, after the death of the last Duke of Stargard, the city fell to the Schwerin Duke Heinrich the Fat.

Jewish pogrom and place of pilgrimage

On October 24, 1492, after a public trial, 27 Jews from all over Mecklenburg, who had been accused of host sacrilege , were burned in front of the city gates. The remaining 247 were expelled from the country. The hill on which the pyre stood is still called the Judenberg today.

The trial was conducted under canon law at the instigation of secular and clerical dignitaries . The priest Peter Dänevicar at the Altar of All Saints in Sternberg - had reported the Jews. He claimed that the Jew Eleazar's wife had given him disgraced and bloodstained hosts, which he then buried. The hosts, apparently discolored red with blood, were found at the place he indicated. As a result, all Mecklenburg Jews were arrested, interrogated and, if they could be connected to the alleged host crime, charged after embarrassing questioning . In a final interrogation, Peter Däne confessed to having procured the hosts for the Jew Eleazar himself. He was brought to Rostock, sentenced to death by fire and burned there at the stake in 1493. The Urgicht , the torture extorted confession of the Jews and the priest Peter Däne, was incorporated as an inscription into a board. The plaque was placed in the Sternberger Rathaussaal - the assembly room of the Mecklenburg state parliament  - until a fire destroyed it in 1659.

The property of the Jews was confiscated by the Mecklenburg dukes and all debts were declared invalid. The Jewish communities outside Mecklenburg thereupon imposed a ban on the country. From then on, this forbade Jews to settle in Mecklenburg. It was not until the beginning of the 18th century that the ban lost its effect that Jewish families settled in Mecklenburg again.

The allegedly desecrated Sternberg hosts with the “Holy Blood ” and the tabletop on which the sacrilege is said to have been committed were kept in the Chapel of the Holy Blood, which was attached to the Sternberg town church , as objects of religious veneration. The chapel was visited by thousands of pilgrims every year around 1500 . As a result, the miracle veneration brought in the enormous sum of 400 guilders annually .

As late as 1492, pamphlets were published about the alleged Sternberg sacrifice in Magdeburg, Cologne and Lübeck. In 1493, Hartmann Schedel from Nuremberg recorded the events in his widespread world chronicle . As a result of the Reformation and the Enlightenment , the view of the events in the late medieval Sternberg changed. Among others, David Franck (1721), Georg Christian Friedrich Lisch (1845 and 1847), Fritz Backhaus (1988) and the State Office for Culture and Monument Preservation Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania (2008) published publications on the subject. Since 2007 a memorial in the Chapel of the Holy Blood has been commemorating the “Sternberg stigma”.

Diets in Sternberg and Malchin

Sagsdorf Bridge over the Warnow

Since 1275, the Mecklenburg rulers and the Mecklenburg estates, i.e. knights, clergy and mayors, met at the Sagsdorf Bridge near Sternberg to negotiate taxes, laws, privileges and military campaigns. An extraordinary state parliament on June 20, 1549 decided to introduce the Reformation in Mecklenburg there. Mecklenburg became a Protestant duchy. A memorial stone erected in 1932 commemorates this. Its inscription: Here at the Sagsdorfer Bridge the Reformation was introduced by the state parliament in Mecklenburg. On June 20, 1549. After 1549 the Sternberger Landtag took place on the nearby Judenberg and was later moved to the town hall. It was opened in the town church until 1913.

In 1572 the state parliament was moved to Sternberg. On July 4, 1572, the state parliament was held on the Judenberg in the presence of Duke Johann Albrecht and Duke Ulrich. The city had to share this privilege after the division of Mecklenburg in 1621 (Güstrow reversals and inheritance contract) into the two duchies of Mecklenburg-Schwerin and Mecklenburg-Güstrow with Malchin . The state parliaments of the Mecklenburg corporate state from 1628 to 1918 took place alternately in Sternberg, i.e. in Schwerin, and in Malchin, i.e. in Güstrow.

According to the Hamburg settlement , Mecklenburg was divided into two (partial) duchies with limited autonomy, from 1815 (partial) grand duchies Mecklenburg-Schwerin and Mecklenburg-Strelitz . These formed a common state and were subordinate to a common parliament. The state parliament, convened annually in autumn, met in the respective town halls of Sternberg and Malchin. Until the First World War, Sternberg belonged to the Duchy (from 1815 Grand Duchy) of Mecklenburg-Schwerin.

Thirty Years War until 1918

In 1618 the Sternberger Vogtei was pledged to the von Grabow family . From 1622 the court court met in the town hall of Sternberg. During the Thirty Years' War , Wallenstein held a state parliament in Sternberg in 1628 and in 1638 the imperial troops under General Gallas occupied the city and used it as headquarters for some time. In 1639 the plague broke out, which raged so badly that the city was almost deserted for half a year. The devastating city fire of April 23, 1659 caused great damage, only one barn remained. Since the necessary funds were now lacking for the re-establishment of the court and district court, which had also burned down, it was moved from Sternberg to Parchim in 1667. In 1675/76 the city was not spared from the war between the Swedes and the Brandenburgers. Half of the inhabitants were also killed by an epidemic of the soldiers. After that, the reconstruction of the city began. The city ​​also suffered from Swedish and Russian troops during the Northern War .

After the execution of the Reich from 1717 to 1728, Sternberger Schützen fought unsuccessfully in 1733 together with the deposed Duke Karl Leopold against the knighthood and Duke Christian Ludwig II. In return, imperial troops occupied the city. Sternberg alone had to shell out 4052 thalers for this civil war. From 1774 to 1848 Sternberg was the seat of a superintendent . In 1790 the Pressentin family sold their manor, which was fit for the Landtag and was incorporated into the municipality in 1830.

At the beginning of the 19th century Jews were resident in Sternberg again . In 1825 they set up their Jewish cemetery at the foot of the “Judenberg”, which was desecrated and finally destroyed several times during the Nazi era .

In 1839 the ramparts were built in their current form. The Schwerin – Sternberg – Güstrow road was built. In 1887, Sternberg was connected to the railway network and a train station by the 72 km long branch line Wismar-Karow . In 1855 the place had 2550 inhabitants. From 1865 the place had street lighting with petroleum, and in 1869 the first telegraph station was set up. A post office opened in 1871, and in 1888 a new Reichspost building was built on the market. In 1894 Sternberg hosted the 18th Mecklenburg Song Festival.

Sternberg had a six-class citizen school and an elementary school class.

In 1895 the city received with the pilot an "institution of higher education for construction trades" with a new building of 1899. The Fraternities Obodritia and Teutonia created in 1895, the Arminia 1903, the Normania 1920 and 1925, the Germania . In 1902 Heinrich Tessenow worked here as a lecturer. From 1915 to 1918 the technical center building was used as a military hospital. In 1934 the technical center was closed and from 1935 the post office used the building as a "postal security school". The files and facilities of the "Oberpostdirektion Königsberg" were supposed to be moved there in 1945. When the trucks arrived, the Red Army met them.

Recent history

1919 to 1933

After 1918 Sternberg belonged to the Free State of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, then from 1934 to the State of Mecklenburg and until 1933 to the Wismar Office. In 1933 the Wismar district became the Wismar district and from 1939 the Wismar district .

In 1919 the previous Dominalamt Warin - Neukloster -Sternberg- Tempzin came to the newly formed district of Wismar . In 1922 the road to Demen was built and the city library was set up in the town hall. A power plant went into operation on the Mildenitz near Zülow in 1924. In 1929 a new school building was erected at the fishing pond after the old one burned down. The Am Heidberg outdoor pool was also opened.

National Socialism

In 1932, the NSDAP was able to enforce its candidate as mayor for the first time in disregard of the election laws. The Nazis dissolved various associations or incorporated them into their Nazi organizations. The technical center was closed in 1934 and the building was used temporarily by an SS sports school and, from 1935, a postal security school . In 1937 the bathing establishment opened on Lake Sternberg. In 1940 the city was “ free of Jews ”, the last two Jews had to leave the city. From 1939 there were prisoners of war and forced laborers, some with SS guard, in Peeschen and in the village. In 1943, bombed out Hamburgers were housed. On May 3, 1945, Sternberg was handed over to the Red Army without a fight , which confiscated the town hall, post office, district court and other houses together with the NKVD . Due to the refugees , the population increased suddenly to 4,480.

From 1945

After the Second World War , the state of Mecklenburg and the Wismar district were dissolved in 1952 , and Sternberg was assigned to the Schwerin district as the district town of the Sternberg district of the same name (one of the smallest districts in the GDR ) . In 1946, in the course of the land reform, the surrounding large estates were expropriated and distributed to new settlers. Various entrepreneurs were also expropriated. In 1946 the hotel "Kaiserhof" was renamed "Sternberger Hof" and was then the Volkshaus and until 1990 the seat of the district leadership of the SED . In the 1949 elections, 28.3% of the population voted against the candidates on the National Front's list . The post school building became the seat of the district council in 1952 . The LPG "Sternberger Burg", later "Friendship" was born. The district office of the Ministry for State Security moved into the villa of the old barrel factory in 1953.

By 1963, 215 new apartments had been built, mainly on Leonhard-Frank-Straße, and in 1978 a district culture house (now the “Seehotel”). From 1967 onwards, 465 apartments were built on Finkenkamp. From 1945 to 1989 a total of 1055 apartments were built.

In 1974 a campsite for 1000 vacationers was built on Luckower See. The Slavic castle Groß Raden on Lake Sternberg was reconstructed and has been open to the public as an archaeological open-air museum since 1987.

After the fall of 1989/1990 - the state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania was established - the historic city center has been fundamentally renovated since 1991 as part of urban development funding; the cityscape of this well-preserved country town, with its partially preserved city wall, has improved a lot. Another 325 apartments were built between 1991 and 1998. After the Sternberg district was dissolved in 1994, the city became part of the newly formed Parchim district . Since the district reform in 2011 , it has been in the Ludwigslust-Parchim district .


On January 1, 2000, Pastin was incorporated. On January 1, 2003, Groß Görnow followed.

coat of arms

Coat of arms of the city of Sternberg
Blazon : “Split; in front in gold a half-looking, golden crowned black bull's head at the crack with closed mouth and black horns; behind in red half an eight-pointed, faceted golden star at the slit. "

The coat of arms was established on April 10, 1858 by Grand Duke Friedrich Franz II of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, redrawn in 1995 and registered under number 42 of the coat of arms of the state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.

Justification of the coat of arms: A coat of arms designed according to the city's secret seal has been documented since 1628. In its current form, which instead of the Mecklenburg bull's head shows the one from the oldest seal image in the more elegant right half of the shield, it was established in April 1858. The coat of arms, with the bull's head typical of the Parchim-Richenberg line of the Mecklenburg Princely House, points to Mr. zu Parchim-Richenberg as the founder of the city. The city name is represented graphically with the half star.
