Historical Information

How the Plessenhof became a tourist information centre in Schleswig

The Plessenhof, a magnificent brick building, was erected in 1798 by the Schleswig physician Johann Friedrich Licht, directly opposite St. Peter's Cathedral in the style of classicism. At that time, today's Plessenstraße was still known as "Hinter dem Graben" (behind the ditch), meaning the street is outside of the old town.

In the German-Danish war in 1864, the house temporarily served as a hospital. The building was built by the first Prussian district councilor Baron Hugo von Plessen who lived there for many years. Out of gratitude, the Schleswig citizens gave the Plessenhof its name.

Later, the Plessenhof was converted into a representative manor house. Two completely different styles, classicism and art nouveau, form a particularly charming contrast, which can still be seen in many places in the house.

Between 1979 and 1981, the Plessenhof was then renovated for the city archives and the tourist information office. In addition, some representative rooms have been converted for small, cultural events. In 2005, Ostseefjord Schlei GmbH was founded in Schleswig, which has since then taken over the municipal tourist information office and has its headquarters in the Plessenhof in the Viking City of Schleswig.

You can find us when you walk from the town centre towards the city harbour passing Capitolplatz. The Plessenhof is directly opposite St. Peter's Cathedral on the right at Plessenstraße 7.
