In the city of Gustrow stands perfectly preserved Renaissance castle. Its construction began by Duke Ulrich of Mecklenburg in 1558 on the site of a medieval castle. Due to several fires it was reconctructed several times. As a result the design of the castle contain elements of German, Italian and French architecture.

From 1800 castle turned into a military hospital and since 1817 into a retirement home. In the years 1963-1978 еhe GDR authorities had carried out a complete restoration of the castle and since 1972 it is a branch of the Schwerin Museum. During a visit in 2014 we have seen that the reconstruction resumed. Fortunately only on the small area around the castle.

A distinctive feature of the castle is it's heights. From the side of the garden you can count 9 floors! Given that in the old times there were no elevators it is quite high.
