575 Renate is a minor planet orbiting the Sun which was discovered by German astronomer Max Wolf on September 19, 1905.

Photometric observations at the Palmer Divide Observatory in Colorado Springs, Colorado in 1999 were used to build a light curve for this object. The asteroid displayed a rotation period of 3.676 ± 0.002 hours and a brightness variation of 0.15 ± 0.01 in magnitude.[2]

This is a member of the dynamic Maria family of asteroids that most likely formed as the result of a collisional breakup of a parent body.[3]
