Historical Monuments



The court building is a three-story, ten-axis brick structure with a gable roof. Its body is slightly extended to the front at the level of the basement, and the segmented arched windows as well as the main entrance portal are closed with round arches. The portal itself consists of high, double doors with a skylight, closed on both sides by pillars with animal heads at the capital level. Inside the court building, the original spatial division has been preserved. From the entrance a side porter's lodge and wide stairs finished with granite steps and a representative balustrade can be seen. Courtrooms, offices, and corridors are closed with high ceilings.

Historical background

The court building dates from the second half of the 19th century, from the period of the greatest economic boom in the city of Guben. It was built on the site of the former Benedictine monastery, along with the monastery church and the district court, demolished in 1949. From 1879 to 1883, this Renaissance building housed initially a district court, which, after the completion of the last building on the plot, was moved to its final seat. The district court, which until then was moved in one of the old town hall wings, was relocated to ist present location in April 1883. In the years 1953-1993 he served as a county court, and then again as a district court. Since the reform of the judiciary in 2012, a non-local branch of the County Court of Cottbus has operated here.
