Manor House (Castle) Groß Lüsewitz

Groß Lüsewitz was a feudal estate that was documented for the first time in 1344. Before 1485, it was owned by the feudal lords von Thulendorf.




It was then acquired by the lords von Bevernest as a fief from the Duke of Mecklenburg. The manor house is located in the middle of an extensive estate and was built between 1896 and 1898 in Neo-Renaissance style. It was constructed to replace a Baroque building that had been destroyed in a fire in 1895. Gotthilf Ludwig Möckel was the architect of the new manor house, and the owner was Friedrich Ferdinand Biermann who had inherited the property from his father, Gottlieb Friedrich Ferdinand Biermann after he had acquired the property in 1880. From 1926 to 1943, it was owned by Hans Thyssen from Mühlheim, followed by Eberhard Thyssen in the last two years of war.

After the expropriation of the last owner, the property was taken up by the Mecklenburg administration. The manor house served as a Tbc hospital until 1949. During the GDR period, the property was very famous due to the institute for plant cultivation that was based there.

The manor house is surrounded by a landscape park that was expanded after 1970 to include a riding field.

The manor house was owned by the Sanitz municipality until 2012 when it was sold.
