    In GDR times this was in the middle of the border area. The residents had to show their papers every time they entered and left the village. It was hardly possible to receive a visit. As a reminder of this time, the place was named after the fall of the wall "village republic Rüterberg". In 2004 Rüterberg was incorporated into the city Dömitz.

    Fantastic view and very impressive songs of the birds. Very nice village, with part of the border installations. Since I still know the division of Germany, it has sometimes been an oppressive feeling that the inhabitants were imprisoned for many years. Between 10:00 pm and 5:00 am the gates were closed, so that no one came to the village and nobody came out. All the more pleasing with how much heart and soul the houses, gardens, etc. were prepared.
    At the same time, it may be a reminder to future generations that something like this should never happen again.

    Rüterberg is history in the smallest space. For 150 years, 150 residents lived here "locked up" between meter-high fences. There was a gate as access to the village, which was constantly controlled. On the 8th (!) November 1989, the inhabitants of Rüterberg were sick and declared their village the "village republic". A memorable place. Their addition in the place name they were allowed to keep.
