Fortress

The Dömitz Fortress, which was erected on the ruins of the old Dömitz Castle, is one of the few sixteenth-century flatland fortresses still in good condition. The defensive architecture of the Renaissance is impressive, due to its five-sided construction with bastions and casemate arches. Because of the special features and its superb state of preservation, the fortress, which has also been home to a museum for the last 50 years, was added to the list of landmarks under monumental protections in 1975. A few years ago, the town decided to comprehensively restore the buildings and facilities, including the historic drawbridge.
