Estate Abtshagen

The Head Bailiff Richard Eggers is named as the tenant of the demesne Abtshagen in 1892. Hermann Radbruch took over around 1910 and managed the estate for over three decades.




After WWII the manor house Abtshagen was destroyed by fire.

At that time the head forestry, which belonged to the forest treasury, had its head office here. It was of regional significance, manager was the Royal Forest Superintendent P. Clece.

Nowadays one can view the Heilgeistkirche (Church of the Holy Spirit) in Abtshagen. The building of the massive nave was completed in 1380; the wooden spire was constructed in 1667. The interior which dates from 1843 is almost completely preserved. A true eye catcher is the Buchholz organ, one of the few surviving original instruments of the well known master.
