The Komturhof


„curia de comtures“

In 1468 the Komturhof was first mentioned as "curia de comtures" in the document book of the Ilsenburg monastery. The stand construction still in existence today dates from this period. Since then, the farm has been used as an economic courtyard and commander's forester for the German Order of Langeln, from 1840 as a count's forester's house, from 1930 as an official residence of the Prussian State Forestry Administration and from 1945 as a residence. In 1994 the local history association opened the local history museum after the listed buildings had been professionally renovated. A party room is available for education and socializing.
