Güstrow Castle.


Güstrow is an agreeable Brick Gothic town mostly known for its Renaissance castle (built in 1589), which was the home of expressionist sculptor Ernst Barlach for 28 years.

The Brick Gothic cathedral was constructed between 1226 and 1335. Inside is the most famous work of Ernst Barlach, the so-called Schwebende Engel ("Hovering Angel"), created in 1926 as a tribute to the victims of World War I.

The white Rathaus (town hall) was rebuilt around 1800 in the neoclassical style.
