Preserved buildings of the Sonnenkamp monastery are the monastery church with the oldest stained glass windows in northern Germany, the provost's building and the bell tower.

East of Wismar on Lake Neukloster lies the town of Neukloster. Of the former Benedictine monastery, now Sonnenkamp Monastery, which was founded there in 1219 under the name Campus Solis, only the monastery church, the bell tower and the provost building remain. The monastery was secularized in 1555 in the course of the Reformation. Subsequently, large parts of the grounds fell into disrepair. A visit to the monastery church, however, is still worthwhile today. Here visitors will find some of the oldest stained glass windows in northern Germany. They were created around 1250, show various saints and are located in the triple window group of the choir.
Various herbs grow in the monastery garden, which is modeled after the one in St. Gall, Switzerland. The Marian altar was created around 1500 by an unknown master. The carved predella consists of parts of another altar and is clearly older (around 1420). On it are depicted scenes and figures of saints. The monastery church also has a bell tower, which was built at the beginning of the 15th century and originally had a triple peal. One bell was lost during the Second World War, but was recast in May 2002 so that Neukloster now has a full peal of bells again. A special gem of brick Gothic is the stepped gable of the provost's office. The bell tower attracts visitors with exhibitions, the monastery church with its art treasures.
