Since 2012, the permanent exhibition for the great writer has been a memorial to the former chapel of the Huguenot cemetery. Texts, quotations and illustrations on illuminated columns provide an insight into the writer's life. Fontane became famous for his extensive "Walks through the Mark Brandenburg" and his social novel "Effi Briest". In addition to the exhibition and the poet's grave, the many old Huguenot tombs are worth seeing.
