Welcome to our website of the Residenzschlossverein. The Residenzschlossverein was founded in 1991 and has the objective to maintain the Mirow Castle and to make it accessible to the public. On this way we´ve made substantial progress. The castle and the castle island are belongings of the federal state Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. At present the castle is undergoing a comprehensively restoration und will be re-opened in 2014.

Nevertheless visitors can obtain plenty of information at the 3-Königinnenpalais opposite the Mirow castle. On the occasion of the Heritage Day the Mirow castle can be visited.

Since 2001 the Residenzschlossverein organizes an International Music Festival every at autumn. This includes the Sophie Charlotte-Violin Competition, the master class and evening concerts. Artistic director of the Festival is Professor Sylvio Krause, First Konzertmeister of the Norddeutsche Philharmonie Rostock.

In the gatehouse you will find the association´s office of the Residenzschlossverein and also the Dependance of Mecklenburg County, North Carolina. The Residenzschlossverein has played his part in the opening of the Dependance. Mirow is the birthplace of the English Queen Charlotte (1744-1818). To her honour a city and a county in the US were named after her - Charlotte in Mecklenburg County. The Dependance is open in the morning.

Even though the castle will be fully restored in 2014 and will – hopefully - have many visitors, it is the duty of the Schlossresidenzverein to draw the public attention to the unique ensemble of the castle island. Therefore the Residenzschlossverein is already working together with the Stately Palaces and Gardens of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

Please enjoy looking through the many pages of our website. The beautiful photographs were taken by Kerstin Zegenhagen, photographer in Peetsch. The logo of the association was designed by Stella Schüssler, artist from Neustrelitz.
