The town was founded in the 13th century as the northernmost border town of Mecklenburg. The first written record dates back to 1257. Under Mecklenburg rule, the small town was the seat of a domanial office and thus had a hinterland function, also for the Darguner and Neukalen area. The trade route "Via regia" led through the town and had a favorable effect on the development of trade and crafts.

The brick town church was built in the middle of the 13th century and is therefore the oldest building in Gnoien. It is the central point of the Lutheran parish of Gnoien. During restoration work in the middle of the 19th century changes were made:

  • renewal of the eastern windows on the outside
  • Reinforcement of the buttresses
  • Reconstruction of the south sacristy
  • New construction of the north hall/south portal

The interior received paintings and wooden stalls in the neo-Gothic style. The well-preserved Marian altar from 1510/1520 is one of the most special in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. The central figure is Mary with a halo and scenes from her life are depicted on the altar wings. The organ was built in 1859 in the workshop of the Mecklenburg organ builder Lütkemüller. It was restored from 2000 to 2004. On the south side of the church there are carvings of a former sundial.

In Gnoien there are several church guides at your disposal.
