Reinfeld, Kreis Rummelsburg, Pommern



Reinfeld was a manorial farm just south of Alt Kolziglow in Kreis Rummelsburg. It is best known as it is the residence of Johanna Puttkamer the wife of German Chancellor Otto Bismarck. The Puttkamers owned many villages in the area including Barnow but this was the most beautiful.
