About the Photography Collection Schloss Kummerow

Since 2016, the Photography Collection – Kummerow Castle on Lake Kummerower in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania has been much more than an insider tip for art connoisseurs. One of the leading private photography collections in Germany can be seen here on an exhibition area of over 2,000 square meters.

The time reference of the medium of photography meets the careful restoration of the historical architectural stock in the baroque Kummerow Castle. The collection is in dialogue with the intentionally preserved traces of the house’s past, which testify to the use of previous generations and life in changing ideologies.
