Wiepkenhagen Manor House

The manor house lies directly on the long-distance route from Rostock to Stralsund. The Steinkeller family of knights owned the former farming village of Wiepkenhagen as an old fief until the second half of the seventeenth century.




Thereafter the estate changed hands several times among “creditors” until in 1691 Johan Boye and Carsten Otte along with their father-in-law Casten Schwiebe leased the then desolate village. In 1745 the heir to Wiepkenhagen, Philipp Christian von Normann, was named as protector of the estate. In the 1930s the property was divided into smallholdings; the immediately prior owner of the manor was Wilhelm Rewoldt. The house was built between 1880 and 1890. Today it is owned by a lawyer in Rostock who has been restoring it since 1993. The outlines of a landscape garden still exist.

The village offers another special feature besides the manor house: Since 2001 the little church has been powered entirely by solar energy.

Wiepkenhagen forms part of the 2007 weekly calendar.

Wiepkenhagen appears in the book Fotografische Zeitreise—Vorpommern [Photographic Time Travel—Vorpommern], Band [Volume] 2
