About Steinfurth:

Steinfurth is a small village near the university and hanseatic City of Greifswald in the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. It was a manor, which was first mentioned in 1405 in a document.
In the village is a ruined church as a monument of the Middle Ages. The very active village community will try to restore part of the monument and use it for cultural events such as concerts or exhibitions. The old cultural house of Steinfurth was built in 1955 by the farmers of the local LPG (Agricultural Production Cooperative) and served as a meeting place. Only with the fall of the wall and by the short-term use as refugee home this function was lost. In 2011, the artist couple Elisa and Mathias Bartoszewski bought the building and now the Natur und Kultur e.V. is using the house for different art and cultural events.
