Neo-Gothic ornamental gate

Historical Monuments

Neo-Gothic ornamental gate


At 1 Dąbrowskiego Str., in the immediate vicinity of the Ostrowska Gate Tower, there is a medium-sized decorative gate and a wall with loopholes connected to it. Its main function of the was to separate the courtyard of Wilhelm Wilke's shipping company, which was located behind it until the Second World War. The gate was designed in the then popular Neo-Gothic style, consistent with many industrial buildings in Guben.

Right next to it, on the left, there is a historicized, high wall with a green, wooden entrance gate to the fruit and vegetable warehouse. It was also built by the owners of Willke's forwarding company operating here since 1817, but it is not an element of the decorative gate.

Historical background

The facility was built at the request of the city authorities, addressed to Wilhelm Wilke in the second half of the 19th century, to tidy up the shipping square that opened directly onto one of the main streets. The form chosen by the owner was probably meant to symbolically complement the already truncated elements of the city's defensive walls.
