The Klempenow castle complex is the only preserved lowland castle in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. It was built in the middle of the 13th century by the Lower Saxon knightly dynasty of the von Heydenbrecks on behalf of the Duke of Pomerania and experienced a varied history in the following centuries.
The castle was built in the mid-13th century by the Lower Saxon knightly dynasty of Heydebreck on behalf of the Duke of Pomerania as a border fortification in the marshy glacial valley at the confluence of the Tollense and Landgraben rivers and was extensively remodeled in the 17th and 18th centuries. Since the 19th century, the complex has been falling into disrepair, and after the Second World War, resettlers lived here. In 1991 the association Kultur-Transit-96 e.V. undertook to restore the castle and to revive it culturally. Large parts of the castle have been renovated and are open to the public. An extensive cultural program ranging from art exhibitions, children's and youth activities, concerts to large, nationally known arts and crafts markets in summer, autumn and Advent. Some rooms of the castle can be rented for private celebrations. Up to 30 civil weddings take place annually in the gallery rooms. A small store at the entrance with beautiful gift ideas and homemade jams and pesto, the café in the castle for snacks as well as for catering your private celebration and a canoe rental on the Tollense complete the offer. As a Welcome Center for the Mecklenburg Lake District, the castle is also able to provide regional support for your individual vacation planning. The view from the tower into the glacial glacial valleys of Tollense and Landgraben and a visit to the beautiful castle garden are always worth a trip.
