As you had a fix-term contract, you are unfortunately obliged to pay the rent until the end of the rental period. This is only not the case if the landlord let out the property to another tenant during the period of your lease agreement.
With regards to the other claims of the landlord, please be advised that the landlord bears the burden of proof concerning the damages. Only if he can prove that you caused the damages, he will be able to claim compensation. Should he not be able to prove that you caused the damages, he will not succeed with his claims.
I strongly advise you to appoint a local attorney to defend you against the claims the landlord has brought against you. It is very important that a notice of defense (Anzeige der Verteidigungsbereitschaft) is submitted to the court within two weeks after the letter has been served on you. Otherwise there will be a default judgment against you and you will lose the case.
