The brewery / monastery estate in OberwarthaThe homestead consists of the U-shaped, multi-axis building complex: manor house with clock tower (roof rider), connecting structure, stable building and servant's house. The courtyard also includes the separate building of the horse / sheep stable with equipment rooms, as well as the pond with carp / fruit cellar and two large barns, one of which was expanded with a small wheelhouse. The brewhouse was demolished under the owner Friedrich Julius (called Fritz) Arndt after 1885 and built as an artificial ruin.
All buildings, with the exception of the servants' house and stables, have large stone vaulted cellars from the long pre-Reformation period.
The first documentary mention exists for Oberwartha and thus for the Vorwerk Brauschenkengut from 1266. Bishop Albert II bought a Vorwerk from 1258 to 1266 from Hospital Meißen and from Conrad von Boritz, called von Wartha, 2 hooves (1hf = 11ha) land.
In the following years, the property of the village with all goods passed through the hands of church dignitaries of Meißen for about 300 years. In 1501 the property became secular and therefore subject to interest in the cathedral chapter in Meißen.
In addition to the Rudolph family, which dominated for almost 200 years and expanded their property considerably to over 100 hectares, Fritz Arndt deserves special mention. From 1885 to 1919 he gave the village and agriculture a modern ecological character, renewed the homestead and improved the village's infrastructure. With the fundamental renovation of the homestead, the construction of the roof rider, the design of the Renaissance gable at the manor house and much more. In 1892 the homestead was renamed Brauschken- to Klostergut.
The subsequent period is characterized by various changes of owner, lessee and administrator, up to the use of LPG and the subsequent decay to this day.(Source: oberwartha.de Umgebung/ Umgebung.html)
