Torgelow — Archeological Finds In The Ukranenland

Torgelow in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania is just shy of the Baltic Coast. Now, don’t go holding that against it — Torgelow is quite interesting to say the least; and imaginative to say the best.

The folks over at Torgelow’s Tourist Information Center (Friedrichstra├če 1) will help you get squared away with all your sightseeing questions.

One of its attractions is the Tierpark Ueckerm├╝nde. There are over a hundred species of animal that call this place home, including ones from Africa (think lions & lemurs!) and Australia (kangaroos). There are many less “exotic” animals, more the farm animal kind like donkeys, pigs, and rabbits.

Another smash hit is the Ukranenland. The what? Ukranenland. Thanks to an archaeological find, you can visit a 9/10th century village of the Middle Ages. Cool, yes? Very!

The Ukranenland is a living, breathing, working outdoor museum where you’ll see medieval bronze casting and crafts made before your eyes. As well as housing and boating (take a ride!) from over a millennium ago. Thousands of visitors a year flock to Torgelow in the Spring & Autumn for the twice-yearly Historical Market Days.

If you’re at the Ukranenland you’re close to the ruins of Castle Hasenburg which has been destroyed during the 17th century Thirty Years’ War. Despite the destruction of a castle ruin, there’s something romantic about them.

Hasenburg is on the town’s few sightseeing routes, whether walking or bicycling. Actually, Torgelow can boast 21km of bicycling trails. It also has a Swedish Route and a specific walking route.

You see, Torgelow does have quite a bit of sightseeing. It also has quite a few memorial stones dedicated to Nazi resistance fighters, victims of hard labor, and those from the camps.

Your last bit of sightseeing is the Christuskirche which was built here in the late 19th century. Seems downright young next to the Ukranenland, yes?
