Eutin is a city in the Holstein Switzerland nature park (Naturpark Holsteinische Schweiz). It stands on the shore of a large lake Großer Eutiner See.

The name of the city is Slavic. This should not be surprising, since quite a few Slavic tribes lived in northern Germany. And here they built a fortress on Fasaneninsel Island in the 9th century. The island is not far from the coast, but now it is private and uninhabited.

The main attraction of the city is the bishop's castle. In 1226, the Lübeck Senate bought the status of a free imperial city from the emperor of the Holy Roman Empire. What is a free city? The main difference from other cities was that the free cities supported the emperor only during the Crusades and defended themselves, while the imperial cities paid taxes to the emperor and allocated troops for military campaigns.

The imperial cities were ruled by the prince-bishop, but after receiving free status, the inhabitants of Lübeck asked him to leave. So, the bishop chose a new place for himself, having built a castle in Eutin.

In 1705, the Danes burned Eutin. The restoration of the castle was undertaken by Prince Christian Augustus, the grandfather of the Russian Empress Catherine II. He rebuilt castle in the baroque style.

In the 19th century, the castle went to the Oldenburg dynasty, they made significant changes, built the top floor and changed the castle park. After 1918, a museum was opened inside.

The castle still belongs to the Oldenburg family. In the 90s, they organized a charity fund and carried out a 10-year reconstruction of the castle. It is worth saying that the area around the castle has also recently been restored. Like the whole embarkment of Eutin.
