Zülow Manor House near Sternberg

In 1871 noted architect Martin Haller, builder of the Hamburg City Hall among others, erected the house in classical style for Johannes Hillmann.  In the entry foyer hang reliefs by the Danish sculptor Thorvaldsen.

The estate of Zülow once embraced 513 hectares (1268 acres).   Horses transported goods, grain, and other agricultural products over narrow-gauge tracks to the railroad station in Dabel.  By marriage the estate came into the possession of the von Dallwitz family, which in April 1945 left Zülow with their four children and workers, headed west.  During the East German regime the house contained, among other things, a cooperative store with storeroom and office, a collection center for eggs, a village tavern, and a cultural center.  The house, monument-listed inside and out, was completely refurbished in 1998-1999 after standing empty for several years and threatening to decay; thereafter it served as a vacation home for many years.  After a change in ownership it is today totally private.

On the former estate grounds stands the largest hydroelectric plant in northern Germany, a technical monument built in 1920 that still produces power today.
