Manor House Hohenbrünzow

The village of Hohenbrünzow was first mentioned in documents in 1248. The manor house was built around 1865 in late-classicist style. At the same time the construction of the English park began.

For centuries, the Hohenbrünzow estate was a fief of the von Schwerin family, later of the Counts of Ziet(h)en-Schwerin. The last owner prior to the expropriation by the land reform was Elisabeth von Schwerin, who had leased the estate to Captain (ret.) Hans-Ulrich von Oertzen.

After the end of World War II and the expropriation of the von Oertzen family an agricultural vocational school moved into the manor house.

The Hohenbrünzow estate complex with its manor house, park and estate buildings was one of the most extensively completely preserved estate complexes in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, until some of the stable buildings were demolished.

The manor house is privately owned. Renovation work has been ongoing since 2018.

The Hohenbrünzow cemetery contains gravesites of the von Oertzen family and the family of the Counts of Schwerin. Ludwig von Schwerin had a belfry built in the cemetery. The bell, cast in 1861, was stolen in 2015.
