This former Cistercian monastery was built in 1273. It is one of the most significant architectural monuments of the early brick Gothic period, and serves as a model for the development of the preservation of monuments in Germany. The Gothic design vocabulary and the delicate ornamentation of grand cathedrals like in Cologne, Paris and Siena were first translated into brick in Brandenburg, at Chorin Monastery. When Brandenburg’s princes converted to Protestantism the monastery was dissolved in 1542 and turned first into a crown land and later re-purposed as a regional office. Karl Friedrich Schinkel, who contributed significantly to the maintenance of the architectural ensemble, described buildings like the Chorin Monastery as ‘the country’s most beautiful ornaments’.
