About Hann. Munden

The name of the town was originally Münden. The official name was changed to Hannoversch Münden (from the former affiliation with the kingdom of Hanover) in order to distinguish Münden from Minden (which is similarly pronounced). Later, to avoid confusion with Hanover, the city's name was abbreviated to Hann. Münden. Inhabitants still generally refer to their own town as Münden
