Estate Pokrent

Pokrent and Alt-Pokrent were first mentioned in the Ratzeburg tithe register in 1230. Of a medieval castle remains of the ramparts and moat are extant.

In the village centre of Pokrent is the estate yard of which some buildings, including the wheelwright's workshop, have been preserved. However, the manor house no longer exists. A few trees from the former estate park still stand on the northern edge.

Village Church Pokrent

The building of the church probably began in 1391. In the church tower there is an old bell from 1760 and a new one which was cast in 2006. The interior is neo-Gothic and dates back to the middle of the 19th century with its altar, pulpit, pews, wooden ceiling and gallery. In 1854, the Squire von Behr of Renzow gave an organ as a gift to the church, which was built by the Hamburg company Wolfsteller. Remarkable is the granite baptismal font, which possibly may already have stood in the previous building - but is in any case the oldest item of furniture.
