Neubrandenburg

The third-largest city in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern also bears the name "City of Four Gates".

"City of Four Gates"

The oldest and best preserved in its complexity of the gate complex in the north-west – the Friedländ Gate – now houses the Centre for Fine Arts. The Stargard Gate with its ornate façade is the second-oldest and the southern entrance to the town.  On the west side of the city's fortifications, the Treptow Gate proclaims the former pride and wealth of the citizens. It is the highest and also the most prestigious of all city gates and harbours an exhibition for early and ancient history. The New Gate was built at the end of the 15th century in the east. All that remains of this is the main gate.

A characteristic feature of the Neubrandenburg defences are the Wiekhäuser (guard houses) built into the wall. These have been lovingly reconstructed and now house public institutions, artistic workshops, clubs, small shops and cosy restaurants.

The tastefully designed cultural park forms a carpet of green to nearby Lake Tollense, creating a popular, local recreational area in the city. Lake Tollense is one of the largest lakes in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
