Immediately following the founding of the town in 1248, the Franciscan Order settled in Neubrandenburg. The monastery church of St. John’s and the east wing are the oldest parts of the Franciscan monastery and were built in 1260. Around the beginning of the 15th century, the margravial court to the north was integrated in an extension. Today the monastery is home to the Regional Museum, which you can also explore digitally.

The gable of the house at Kröpeliner Str. 82 (from 1493) is one of the most important examples of Late Gothic gable design in Rostock. It is distinguished by an extremely elaborate design with alternating layers of glazed and unglazed bricks as well as bricks with relief decoration. Today, this building houses the municipal library.
