Monuments and Sights

"The white castle by the sea" - memories of a castle that no longer exists.

The manor house Schloss Dwasieden was located near Sassnitz on the island of Rügen in the immediate vicinity of the Baltic Sea. This former magnificent building was built between 1873 and 1877 by order of Adolph von Hansemann, owner of the Disconto-Gesellschaft in Berlin and one of the richest men of the Bismarck era. The architect of the mansion was Friedrich Hitzig, a student of the famous Friedrich Schinkel. The architecture was based on the resort architecture, which is characteristic for the Baltic coast of Western Pomerania. Due to the demolition in 1948, only ruins of the magnificent building exist, as well as the Marstall, which burned out in 1997. The remains of the ensemble are located on a hill above the Baltic Sea, which directly adjoins the city harbor of Sassnitz to the southwest. The castle avenue to Dwasieden Castle branches off from the road to Mukran (coming from Sassnitz).
"The white castle by the sea" a book by Ralf Lindemann, tells the history of the castle in great detail. Guided tours of the castle ruins are conducted regularly.
