The historic old town


We’re excited for you!

History and nature in one

Trip to Angermünde

It is only around ten kilometers from our country hotel near Lake Felchow to the historic old town of Angermünde, which can be easily reached by bus, bike or on foot. Almost two thirds of Angermünde’s urban area belong to the large protected areas of the Unteres Odertal National Park and the Schorfheide-Chorin Biosphere Reserve. The city itself acts as a bridge between the two national parks.

Historic and wealthy Angermünde

The officially recognized resort town on the Mündesee is famous for its historic old town center, which has been continuously restored since the 1990s. The small streets, half-timbered houses and romantic courtyards give the town its special charm. The Uckermark House deserves special mention, as it is considered one of the oldest half-timbered houses in Angermünde and is now a modern culture and information center together with the Angermünde Museum and the tourist information center.

Auf Initiative des Altkünkendorfer Künstlers Joachim Karbe treffen sich alle zwei Jahre Bildhauer aus ganz Europa zum Angermünder Hartgestein-Symposium. Als Material für ihre Arbeiten verwenden die Künstler Findlinge. Large granite stones left here by the last ice age about 10,000 years ago. You can discover some of the towns artworks walking through the old town and along the charming Mündesee promenade.

More than 775 years of city history

Angermünde’s eventful history dates back to the Middle Ages. The historic old town with its brick architecture is only one of the impressive witnesses of this past. Unmissable are the Franciscan monastery and one of the most important churches in the Uckermark, St. Mary’s Church, famous for its baroque organ by Joachim Wagner. St. Mary’s Church is the landmark of the city. It houses a collection of historical tombs and works of art from the 16th – 18th centuries.

Culture against a unique backdrop can also be enjoyed at the Franciscan monastery, when the monastery church is transformed into a music and theater stage from May to September for the “Angermünder Klostersommer”. But even outside the concert season, the Franciscan monastery, considered one of the oldest monasteries in Germany, with its baroque bell tower and beautiful gardens, is highly recommended.

Cultural pearls of bygone times

Historical treasures in Angermünde

Historical sights

Besides St. Mary’s Church, there are many other cultural and architectural highlights to discover in Angermünde: Angermunde Castle with its medieval tower or the Old Town Hall right on the market square. Here you will also find the walk-in market fountain with sculptures by the uckermark artist Christian Uhlig.

Fascinating mix of history, art and culture

Angermünde has also left its literary mark: the town served as the setting for “The Pagans of Kummerow,” the most famous work by author Ehm Welk. On an annual reenactment in August of a traditional migration of peoples, you can follow in the footsteps of the writer around his native village of Biesenbrow.

Have a good trip!

Insider Tip:

A hike to the Stolper Tower. The “Grützpott”, as it is also called, is the thickest keep in Germany.
