Löwenberger Land — Land Of Castles And Churches

If anyone of you out there has the winning lottery numbers, can I have them? Please? Why? I want to buy a castle.

I know it’s a lot to ask, but once you see Schloss Liebenberg in the town of Löwenberger Land, you’ll want one for yourself too. It was built in 1745; and even has its very own lake. It also has a tiny stone church, which is the final resting place for its previous owners. You can stay here if you want, it’s now a hotel.

Schloss Hoppenrade is another 18th century castle within this forested community of 17 villages. Well, it is currently an 18th century Burg built over a 15th century original; that once had a moat.

Still not impressed? Then maybe Castle Löwenberg is more your cup of tea, another Baroque Schloss that was formerly a medieval castle. Close to Castle Löwenberg there’s Löwenberger Land’s Heimatmuseum, which is a local history museum.

Church Löwenberg (Protestant) has an interesting history. It was built in the popular Gothic style in the 13th century, fell into disrepair during the 17th century Thirty Years’ War; and lay in ruins for almost a century before the town rebuilt.

I like the church in the village of Falkenthal. Its ivy covered Baroque & half-timbered tower is the pride of this village’s 700 residents. I can see why.

Also in Falkenthal you’ll find a well-marked former postal route from Berlin to Szczecin, which you do via bicycle.

Gutengermendorf also boasts a 13th century church, as well as a Horse Market every Fall.

Other festivals and events throughout Löwenberger Land’s shires are Family Sports Day (April), Easter concerts, Spring Festival (April), and May Day (May 1).

As you’re off meandering through town, you’ll find a memorial dedicated to victims of a 1945 Death March; and a War Memorial in the village of Teschendorf.

There’s another war memorial (World War I) in the village of Großmutz, as well as a Neo-Gothic church that replaced the original one, after plague and war wiped out almost its entire population (today it has about 250 residents).

Wait until you see how delightful Löwenberger Land really is. I’m wondering if you give me those winning numbers… ;-)
