Visible from afar, Leitzkau Castle near Gommern forms a prominent point in the western Fläming region. The foundation stone is a monastery founded in the 12th century by the Premonstratensian Canons Regular. The impressive Romanesque basilica has been preserved from this time. After the Reformation, the monastery was rebuilt in the 16th century into a castle in the Weser Renaissance style. Today Leitzkau is considered the most important castle building of this epoch in the area of the middle Elbe. In 1564, Hilmar von Münchhausen, a Lower Saxon nobleman, acquired the complex, which he rebuilt together with his son Statius. The castle served as the residence of the von Münchhausen family until 1945, then as emergency accommodation for displaced persons and as a school until 1996.
