Chorin Abbey

The remains of the abbey, built from 1273 onwards by the Cistercian monks of Lehnin, is one of the finest examples of brick architecture in Northern Germany. The church is designed like a basilica with three naves and a seven-sided apse. Stair turrets flank the western façade, which features three windows crowned by a rose window. All that has survived from the original monastic buildings are the abbot's residence, the brewery and the remains of an old mill.
