Right, it's not exactly obvious. Bring up the admin UI, something like
http://localhost:8983/solr. From there you have to select a core in
the 'core selector' drop-down on the left side. If you're using
SolrCloud, this will have a rather strange name, but it should be easy
to identify what collection it belongs to.

At that point you'll see a bunch of new options, among them "schema
browser". From there, select your field from the drop-down that will
appear, then a button should pop up "load term info".

NOTE: you can get the same information from the TermsComponent, see:
This is a little more flexible because you can, among other things,
specify the place to start. In your case you might specify
terms.prefix=mein which will show you the terms that are actually
being _searched_ as opposed to being stored. This latter is what you
see in the browser when you search for docs and is sometimes
misleading as you're (probably) seeing.
