Description

Departure by coach from Oderberg in the company of your guide for a tour of the Chorin Cistercian Monastery.
This 13th century monastery is viewed as one of the masterpieces of Brick Gothic, typical of Northern Germany. Settled amidst an unspoiled picturesque landscape on the Southern edge of the Uckermark region, it was once a significant center for architecture in the Middle-Ages. The monastery lost its distinctiveness at the time of the Reformation and was then used as a quarry. It enjoyed a renewed interest in the 19th century, when Romanticism rediscovered the hidden beauty in old ruins.
