Berlinchen (Barlinek), Kreis Soldin, Neumark, Brandenburg

Berlinchen (Barlinek) was a walled town surrounded by a mote. This town was created by the Dukes of Brandenburg in 13th century. The town walls date to the 14th century. The town was 50% destroyed in the Second World War and rebuilt. The pictures show only a small section of wall on the lakeshore. The central market plaza is also shown.

It had 13th century church which was initially Catholic, became Lutheran after 1534, and returned to being a Catholic church following the Second World War. The church was rebuilt in 1880's and after the Second World War. I particularly liked the lovely blue vaulted ceiling of the church.

My interest in this town is because a Remus family had significant events happen in this town. Some if not all of the family moved on to Stargard Gottberg, Kreis Pyritz, Pommern Here are details (much is from
