When Fritz Reuter passed through the Kalißer Heide on August 25, 1840, the day of his release from the fortress prison in Dömitz, he passed the crossroads Neu Kaliß - Neu Göhren, which later in his memoirs "Ut mine Festungstid" was symbolically significant for his life's journey.
"Ja, äwer wecker Weg was de rechte?", Fritz Reuter had asked himself at the time. This question tormented the famous regional poet Fritz Reuter so often in his life, even before his seven-year imprisonment in the fortress, when he had fallen out with his father, when he was almost involved in student revolts in Jena in 1833, and also later due to his recurring drunkenness. Friends and admirers of the Mecklenburg native poet erected a monument of boulders in his honor at that crossroads on September 20, 1885. One of the stones commemorates "Schuten", a small dog that Reuter had carried with him at the time. This was a gift from the commandant's daughters for his 29th birthday in 1839.
Even today, admirers and friends of the local poet meet every year on the 1st Sunday in September at the Fritz Reuter Stone to commemorate the Low German poet. While at that time regular folk festivals took place, the framework of the events has changed in the meantime. At the monument, which was restored in 1996, people meet for a program that focuses on Low German poems and stories from Reuter's pen.
