Museums

The museum collects, preserves and presents historical monuments, material testimonies and documents from the history of the rural area on a floor space of just over 1,000 m² in its five buildings as well as on the nature trails and open spaces.

The collection focuses on local history, folklore, work, handicraft and everyday tools, toys, teaching and learning aids, textiles, documents, written material, postcards, photos, especially from the 20th century. One of the special features of the museum is that it was created with the help of many inhabitants of the region, the municipality and the Förderverein Region Güstrow e.V.. Important projects were also supported by state and federal authorities. The resulting exhibitions in some of the technical facilities, farm and residential buildings, which were built in the 19th and 20th centuries and are typical of the village today, are a contribution to the preservation of the evolved historical structure of the village of Lohmen.

The storehouse in the Chausseestraße - built in 1910 as a barn of a leasehold - is open from May to October Tue - Sat 3 - 5 pm. Special and permanent exhibitions on various topics can be viewed here. The inhabitants of the region and their guests have gathered utensils and tools from everyday life, field and horticulture and handicrafts, which reflect the development of rural life and work in the course of the 20th century since the end of the 19th century.
In the parsonage barn (tourist information) - open on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. - an impressive wooden beam architecture up to the cane roof as well as older equipment for fodder processing can be visited.
The other facilities are made accessible during guided tours of the village, or a visit to the 30 km long Archaeological Trail is a recommended hiking destination.

Admission to the store is free, but any donation is welcome.

Güstrow Cathedral

  • Domplatz, 18273 Güstrow

Construction of the cathedral began in 1226 and was not completed until 1335 with the consecration of the altar. The transition from the Romanesque to the Gothic period can be clearly seen at Güstrow Cathedral. The cruciform ground plan and the elongated choir room point to the Romanesque concept. The massive west tower is 44 meters high.

Parish Church of St. Mary

  • Open today
  • Markt, 18273 Güstrow

The Güstrow parish church stands on the market square in the immediate vicinity of the town hall. The first documented mention of the parish church dates back to 1308. After the fire in the center of Güstrow in 1503, which also destroyed the church, it was rebuilt and consecrated in 1508. When you enter the parish church, the first thing you see is the completely restored Jan Borman altar from 1522. This work of art, the ornate pulpit, the impressive organ and a small Barlach angel are already reasons enough to take a look around. But there is one very special highlight that you should not miss: 196 steps lead up to the 41 meter high observation deck of the highest building in Güstrow. A magnificent view over the city and Heidberge, the lakes and the meadows leaves many tourists amazed.
