Lutkowo (German Lüdtkenfürst ) is a village in the Polish Warmia-Masurian Voivodeship , which belongs to the rural community of Lelkowo ( Lichtenfeld ) in the Braniewski powiat ( Braunsberg district ).

Geographical location

Lutkowo is six kilometers southwest of the state border between Poland and Russia ( Kaliningrad Oblast ( Königsberg area )) on a side road, Lelkowo ( Lichtenfeld ) on Voivodship Road 510 (former Reichsstraße 126 ) with Żelazna Góra ( Eisenberg ) not far from the former Reichsautobahn Berlin – Königsberg connects.


In 1412 the Lüdtkenfürst was first mentioned in a document - founded as Vorwerk zu Hohenfürst (today in Polish: Wyszkowo). As Groß Lüdtkenfürst it was a manor village opposite the municipality of Klein Lüdtkenfürst (Lutkówko) to the east . Grand Master Albrecht prescribed it to Hans Bruse and his son in 1522 . The Rautter family was named as the owner in the 16th century, and the von Auer family at the end of the 18th century . The last owner of the Lüdtkenfürst estate was Olga Klenow , who sold it in 1930 to the East Prussian Landgesellschaft , which relocated the lands.

On June 11, 1874 Small and large Lüdtkenfürst Lüdtkenfürst were in the newly formed District High Prince incorporated. In 1910 there were 47 inhabitants in the rural community and 145 in the manor district.

With effect from September 30, 1928, the rural community Friedrichshof (no longer existent) and Klein and Groß Lüdtkenfürst were merged to form the new rural community Lüdtkenfürst, which continued to belong to the Hohenfürst district until 1945. In 1933 the community had 254, in 1939 it had 265 inhabitants. It belonged to the district of Heiligenbeil (Mamonowo) in the administrative district of Königsberg (Kaliningrad) in the Prussian province of East Prussia .

Since 1945 Lüdtkenfürst has been Polish under the name Lutkowo (there is a place of the same name in the West Pomeranian Voivodeship ) and part of Gmina Lelkowo in the Braniewski powiat in the Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship (1975 to 1998 Elbląg Voivodeship ).


Before 1945 Lüdtkenfürst belonged with its predominantly Protestant population to the parish Hohenfürst (Wyszkowo) in the church district Heiligenbeil (Mamonowo) in the church province of East Prussia of the Church of the Old Prussian Union . The last German clergyman was Pastor Otto Heinrich Kumutat .

Since 1945, Lutkowo, with almost exclusively Catholic residents, has continued to belong to the Wyszkowo parish , which is now a branch in the newly founded parish Zagaje ( Hasselpusch ) in the Pieniężno ( flour sack ) dean's office in the Archdiocese of Warmia of the Catholic Church in Poland . Protestant church members living here belong to the Masuria diocese of the Evangelical-Augsburg Church in Poland .
