Angermünde (German pronunciation: [aŋɐˈmʏndə] ( )) is a town in the district of Uckermark in the state of Brandenburg, Germany. It is located on the Mündesee, 43 miles northeast of Berlin on the Berlin–Szczecin railway. Angermünde station is at the junction of lines to Prenzlau, Bad Freienwalde, and Schwedt.

Overview[edit]

The population is about 10,000, but the population has been rapidly falling as its traditional industrial base enamel-working has declined. An administrative sub-centre of its district, it has several Protestant churches, a number of schools of higher learning, and a recently refurbished historic marketplace with an old town hall. Located in the game-filled forests of the Uckermark, with its many lakes, it now relies heavily on tourism and the sources of revenue linked to it.

According to the 1911 Encyclopaedia Britannica, the town is known for a 1420 victory by Frederick I, Elector of Brandenburg over the Pomeranians.
