After approval of the founding of the monastery in 1275, the Dominicans received parts of the margravial court on the south-western edge of the old town in a slightly elevated position above Lake Uckersee for the construction of their complex. The convent was one of the richest Dominican monasteries in the Mark as early as 1308. In 1519 the monastery was damaged in a fire, which weakened its economic situation. In the course of the Reformation the monastery was dissolved in 1544.

The Dominican monastery was built in four phases from 1275 to 1500. The hall church with three naves, consecrated in 1343, the enclosure area and the annex together with a farm building formed the core of the monastery, which has been completely preserved and renovated. The cloister, the refectory and the women's chapel with Gothic building and decorative elements have their stylistic roots in the works of the "Brandenburg Cathedral Building Hut" and the "Chorin Building Hut".

The historical complex today houses the Museum of Cultural History, the City Archive, the City Library and an event centre. In addition to the Cultural History Museum with its outstanding collection of medieval objects and an exposition on the life and work of the classicist landscape painter and Goethe friend Jakob Philipp Hackert, the Dominican Monastery offers a wide range of cultural activities, including concerts, theatre and exhibitions. The Gothic monastery church impresses with its three- and four-pass lancet windows and the elaborate north portal. In the refectory you can admire medieval murals. Concerts take place regularly in the Friedgarten and the monastery garden invites you to linger.

Group tours and museum educational offers for children and youth groups are available on request.
