#deinsauerland / Outdooractive POIs / Leitmar - district of Marsberg

The village Leitmar carries a water name of high age, because the place name "Letmere" was formed with the Germanic basic word "mari" (for spring, swamp, standing water). As "villa Letmere" Leitmar is mentioned for the first time around 1120 as a donation of a noble lord Bernhard to the Benedictine abbey Helmarshausen (district Kassel).
