Viereck is a municipality in the Vorpommern-Greifswald district, in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany.

History[edit]

Viereck was founded in 1748 in the course of the repopulation policy under King Frederick II, the Great, of Prussia. The then competent Prussian state minister in charge of internal colonisation, Adam Otto von Viereck, became namesake to the place, when it was renamed in his honour in 1751.
