Behind the name of Schwerin's "small Binnenalster" lies a true story: on the eastern shore of the man-made lake, pastors and bishops of the nearby cathedral community once ordered their gardens. For irrigating the ornamentals and crops this was quite convenient.Probably already in the 12th century, a dam was piled up to dam water for the mill operation. Originally, the former "mill pond" extended to today's Schlossstraße; the water also fed the former moat. The Pfaffenteich in its present form has an area of about 12 hectares.schwerin.de/kultur-tourismus/sehenswuerdigkeiten/altstadt/pfaffenteich
