Zitterpenningshagen Manor House

The place, which takes its name from the knight Zitterpennig, is first mentioned in documents around 1300.

In 1314 Wizlaw II of Rügen acquired the estate and bestowed it as a fief.  Parts of the property were bought in 1321 by the city of Stralsund and in 1336 by the Holy Ghost Monastery of Stralsund, which owned the whole estate by 1696.  In the mid-nineteenth century the manor house was torn down and rebuilt.  Around 1937 the property was owned by the Monastic Administration of Stralsund; the lessees were the Mohr family.  After 1945 it was the seat of the municipal administration of Wendorf.
