Castles and Manors

Bützow Castle once served as a bishop's residence.

In 1239, the bishops of Schwerin built a castle, which was rebuilt into a Renaissance chateau in the mid-16th century under Duke Ulrich. Unfortunately, little remains of the ring-like castle complex. Only the three-bay bishop's chapel, in which a museum of local history has been established in the meantime, gives an idea of the past. Since its reconstruction in 1910/1911, the original Renaissance castle has been a simple, three-story plaster building with a high gable roof. The foundation walls date back to the 13th or 14th century. In GDR times, the building served as a cultural center and later housed a library and museum. For several years, the castle has now been renovated for use as a company headquarters with offices and company apartments.

Güstrow Cathedral

  • Domplatz, 18273 Güstrow

Construction of the cathedral began in 1226 and was not completed until 1335 with the consecration of the altar. The transition from the Romanesque to the Gothic period can be clearly seen at Güstrow Cathedral. The cruciform ground plan and the elongated choir room point to the Romanesque concept. The massive west tower is 44 meters high.

Parish Church of St. Mary

  • Open today
  • Markt, 18273 Güstrow

The Güstrow parish church stands on the market square in the immediate vicinity of the town hall. The first documented mention of the parish church dates back to 1308. After the fire in the center of Güstrow in 1503, which also destroyed the church, it was rebuilt and consecrated in 1508. When you enter the parish church, the first thing you see is the completely restored Jan Borman altar from 1522. This work of art, the ornate pulpit, the impressive organ and a small Barlach angel are already reasons enough to take a look around. But there is one very special highlight that you should not miss: 196 steps lead up to the 41 meter high observation deck of the highest building in Güstrow. A magnificent view over the city and Heidberge, the lakes and the meadows leaves many tourists amazed.
