Municipalities of Germany the lowest official level of territorial division in Germany

Municipalities are the lowest level of official territorial division in Germany. This is most commonly the third level of territorial division, ranking after the Land (state) and Kreis (district). The Gemeinde which is one level lower in those states also includes Regierungsbezirke as an intermediate territorial division. The Gemeinde is one level higher if it is not part of a Samtgemeinde. Only 10 municipalities in Germany have fifth level administrative subdivisions and all of them are in Bavaria. The highest degree of autonomy may be found in the Gemeinden which are not part of a Kreis. These Gemeinden are referred to as Kreisfreie Städte or Stadtkreise, sometimes translated as having "city status". This can be the case even for small municipalities. However, many smaller municipalities have lost this city status in various administrative reforms in the last 40 years when they were incorporated into a Kreis. In some states they retained a higher measure of autonomy than the other municipalities of the Kreis. Municipalities titled Stadt are urban municipalities while those titled Gemeinde are classified as rural municipalities.

History

Sanitz is mentioned in the sources in 1256 when it was called Kirchdorf. The mention involved the church at Dänschenburg which was described as a daughter church of Sanitz. A subsequent mention occurs in an agreement of 2 June 1291 involving Henry I of Mecklenburg-Güstrow, at the time the local Bishop, who granted the lordship of the Rostock region to his ward Nicholas whose own heirs would retain these privileges. In the fourteenth century Sanitz is recorded as having been held by asuccession of vassals such as Bernard Kopmann from Rostock, the knight Siegfried of Plön, Reimar von Wedel, the Rostock council member Dietrich Horn, along with his son, the major Dippold Horn. After this the village was inherited by the Cistercian monastery at Doberan who held it until the Reformation. In 1552 the monastery fell victim to a programme of Secularization in the area and the village was transferred as a ducal domain to Robnitz and thereafter leased out to various land owning families. In 1879 the village passed into the control of nearby Toitenwinkel. [2]
