Welcome to the Poggehaus Zierstorf, © Poggehaus Zierstorf
Exhibitions and Galleries, Museums, Castles and Manors

The Pogge House is an exhibition place commemorating the life and work of the outstanding representatives of the Pogge family.

The time of construction of the manor house is not exactly dated, it is assumed in the 18th century. The half-timbered building is only partially preserved. This concerns one half of the building and the two-story central risalit, which is preceded by a small annex. The new window installations do not correspond to the historical model. One half of the building is plastered.

The Paul Pogge Information and Meeting Center has now found a worthy place in the manor house. The Zierstorfer Heimatverein, together with the Thünen Museum in Tellow, established the site in 1995 in honor of Paul Pogge (1838-1884). As the youngest son of Friedrich Pogge, he took over the estate in 1862, but already in 1865 he traveled to Africa for the first time, followed by two research trips on behalf of the German Africa Society, and established his first research station in Luluaburg. Paul Pogge did not return to Germany, he died of a lung disease in 1884.

The exhibition:

  • In the main room you will find testimonies to the life of the African explorer Paul Pogge, to his travels, to the colonial and post-colonial era, complemented by art and everyday objects from Central Africa.
  • In two other rooms, a photo exhibition about a trip to the countries of the Sahel by Bärbel Kleemann is currently on display.

Opening hours:

  • Art: Open always on Whitsun weekend.
  • Midsummer Remise - Night of the Nordic Manor Houses always on Saturday around June 21
  • Open Monument Day always on the 2nd Sunday in September
  • Further visiting possibilities by phone: 0171 73 26 672 and 03996 125 87 27.
