Hohenzieritz went down in history as the place where the legendary Queen Luise of Prussia died. The castle was once the summer residence of the Dukes of Mecklenburg-Strelitz. Today, a memorial in the castle provides information about Queen Luise. One of the earliest landscape gardens in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern extends behind the palace. It was created from 1771 by the English garden architect Thomson.

Hohenzieritz Castle was built in 1746-1751 as a single-story Baroque building. From 1790 the building was extended and raised to a three-winged complex by order of Carl II of Mecklenburg-Strelitz. It was here that Carl II's most famous daughter, Queen Luise of Prussia, died after an illness lasting several weeks on July 19, 1810. In her honor there is a memorial on the first floor of the palace. One of the earliest landscape gardens in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern extends behind the castle. From 1771, incorporating the surroundings and the former Baroque garden, created by the English garden architect Thomson.
