Parks and Gardens

The garden of Güstrow Castle was first mentioned in 1570 and was subsequently redesigned several times. On the occasion of the 750th anniversary of Güstrow, the garden was rededicated in 1978. Old plans formed the basis for the design.

Duke Ulrich of Mecklenburg had an elaborately designed pleasure garden built at the same time as the Renaissance palace was built. The subsequent dukes of Mecklenburg redesigned the garden and adapted it to the taste of the time; among other things, it was expanded with early Baroque buildings.

The palace and garden were only used for a few years after the extinction of the Güstrow ducal line in 1695. Due to the vacancy, the decay accelerated in the course of the following years. It was not until restoration work was carried out in the 1960s and 1970s that the pleasure garden was rebuilt. In its present form, it borrows from the 17th and early 18th century depictions.

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.
