Dargun cloister and castle compound
Tours and offerings
Experience more than 800 years of history in the Dargun cloister and castle compound. You will be guided by our experienced personnel through the old walls of the magnificent Cistercian compound from the 12th century, which was converted to a castle during the Reformation.
In 1873, the first agricultural school in the state of Mecklenburg was established here. In 1945, the compound was severely damaged by fire. Since 1990, the 3-story, 4-winged compound was stabilised and restored.
