1. Stargarder Tor
The Stargard Gate in Neubrandenburg was built in the first half of the 14th century in the style of North German brick Gothic. The gate system consists of the 18-metre-high front gate on the field side, the 24-metre-high main gate on the city side, the 40-metre-long Zwinger walls connecting them and a half-timbered house integrated into the eastern Zwinger wall, which originally served as a customs house. Due to the marshy subsoil of the surrounding area, a Zingel was dispensed with here, as was present at other Neubrandenburg city gates. Originally, the fortification also included two upstream mills, of which only the Lohmühle is preserved. At the height of the main gate, the gate system is connected to the city wall, with wall openings on both sides, which were carried out in 1909 to facilitate pedestrian traffic.
The Ravensburg in Burgholz, near the Neubrandenburg district of Monckeshof, is a large tripartite Slavic castle wall from the 7th to 9th centuries. It is incorrectly named "Ravensburg". For a long time, this complex was thought to be the former seat of the builder of Neubrandenburg, whom city historiography traditionally addresses as Herbord von Raven. Therefore, the castle was named after this knight. That this assumption is wrong, however, is proven by some archaeological investigations carried out in the area. There are no written records of the site, but it can be assumed that a subtribe of the Wilzen had its main town here, to which 30 proven village sites in the area belonged.
