Mummy of Christian Friedrich von Kahlbutz

The place name is of Slavic origin. The original name "Campiel" means bath and refers to the neighboring rivers Dosse and Schwenze. Around 1490 Kampehl belonged to the Ruppin rulership of the Counts of Lindow-Ruppin, which was essentially imperial . As early as 1491, the “Kalebuz” family was named as resident in old documents, and in 1525 it was also listed as wealthy. A visitation protocol from 1541 mentions the name "Kampil". In Kampehl, in the crypt of the village church from the 13th century, there is the mummy of the knight Kahlbutz , the most famous representative of this family. According to legend, the knight Kahlbutz killed the shepherd Pickert. At the trial, in which he swore an oath of discharge for lack of evidence (and then left the trial as a free man), he is said to have said: "If I was the murderer, God willing, my corpse should never rot."

In 1702 Kahlbutz died and was buried in the crypt. When the crypt of the church was reopened in 1794, in addition to numerous decayed corpses, the undestroyed corpse of the knight Kahlbutz was found in it. To this day it is not clear why the body of the knight Kahlbutz did not decompose.

It was also the place in the clover leaf region where the first Schöller Festival took place. Between 2005 and 2015, Wolf Amadeus Fröhling, known as the “singing pastor”, organized the Kalebuz culture events here when he was still a pastor in the Neustadt-Köstriz-Kempel community . Among others, there were Karsten Troyke , Peter Ensikat and Black grits with music, readings and cabaret programs on. On the anniversary of the birth and death of the knight Kahlbutz - at the time of Mr. Fröhling's activity - Mr. Fröhling and Hans Marquardt gave a concert with songs by Georg Kreisler .
