  Simmern - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Simmern (pronounced [ˈzɪmən]) is a town in Germany with 8,000 inhabitants.
Simmern is centrally located in the Hunsrück and serves as the commercial, industrial, educational, cultural, and administrative center for the district and the Verbandsgemeinde Simmern (see below).
Simmern and other parts of the Hunsrück are vividly portrayed in Heimat, a German movie and mini-series portraying a family and a fictional village in the Hunsrück over the course of 20th Century German history.

Catharina Dorothea, born in Simmern in 1816; William, my great-great grandfather, born in Simmern in 1822; Jacob born in Simmern in 1824; and Karl, born in Simmern in 1827.
A generation later in 1831, the late Anna Elisabetha Auler Gretsch's daughter, Maria Elise Gretsch, would marry in Simmern and her 15-year-old-half-sister Catherina Dorotherea Gretsch would, in the maze of town life, family influence and ceremony, be watching.
Lorenz Auler was a witness at the birth of Anna Elisabetha Auler and Casimir Gretsch's fourth child, Margaretha (born in Simmern in 1810, died in 1812).

 Giornale Nuovo: A Fine, Useful Booklet
Rodler was employed as a secretary by Johann II, Pfalzgraf und Herzog von der Pfalz-Simmern-Sponheim, (apparently anglicizable as ‘Landgrave of Simmern,’ or ‘Duke of Pfalz-Simmern’), the head of a junior branch of the Wittelsbachs:
Simmern being the town where he kept court.
Some of the woodcuts in the book are purely technical, but others incorporate scenes from life at Simmern’s court: the woodcut on the title page (the first one shown above) shows a workshop wherein a painter, an embroiderer and other craftsmen and their assistants are hard at work.

 Edgar Reitz HEIMAT-FRAGMENTE - Bericht von den Premieren in Mainz und Simmern, 28./29.10.2006
In Simmern the atmosphere was much more familiar: a good 100 spectators had gathered for the afternoon performance, and many more saw the film on the Sunday or Monday evenings.
In the question and answer session after the premiere in the Pro-Winzkino in Simmern I asked Edgar Reitz directly about this, and he himself found it hard to judge whether the film would be accessible also to a wider audience.
It was heart warming that at that point several spectators with no experience of HEIMAT spoke up and reported that they had enjoyed the film and that the relationships had been easy for them to follow in spite of their previous lack of knowledge of the stories and characters.

 Simmern in the Hunsrück
This principality was founded in 1410 by the Count Palatine Stephan (1410-1459) of the house of Wittelsbach, which politically joined the estates in the Electoral Palatinate to the Hunsrück region, with Simmern as the administrative center.
It was a corner tower of the city wall, built between 1320 and 1330.
No wonder, since Simmern lies directly on the old Roman road "Via Ausonia", which passes through Hunsrück and connected Mainz to Trier.

 Independent Catholic News
The Catholic community in Simmern seemed thriving with a big parish/community hall that seemed to be the centre of many activities.
In Simmern, a whole floor of the community centre was dedicated to the youth in the parish where they meet to play table tennis, pool or just relax.
I think that it is important that the young are given priority and that they are given the freedom to socialise and have fun within their parish, like Simmern.

 Enjoy Simmern
Experience a special attraction on the Schinderhannesradweg, a 38km former rail road track between Simmern and Emmelshausen, where once the stream locomotive puffed.
Or you can cycle on the Soonwaldradweg which is a continuation of the Schinderhannesradweg — to the border of the Soonwald and along this mountain range to Gemünden (16km).
Of course the hills and woods of the Hunsrück offer an ideal scenario for extensive mountainbiking (meeting point in Simmern).

 Frederick III, The Pious (1515-1576)
(1515-1576), called “the Pious,” elector palatine of the Rhine, eldest son of John II., count palatine of Simmern, was born at Simmern on the 14th of February 1515.
He lived in comparative obscurity and poverty until 1557, when he became count palatine of Simmern by his father’s death, succeeding his kinsman, Otto Henry (1502—1559), as elector palatine two years later.
Although inclined to the views of Calvin rather than to those of Luther, the new elector showed great anxiety to unite the Protestants; but when these efforts failed, and the breach between the followers of the two reformers became wider, he adopted Calvinism in 1561.
