Neuenkirchen is a municipality in the Vorpommern-Rügen district, in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany.


Neuenkirchen is first mentioned in 1318 as Nygenkerke.

Until 1326, the village was part of the Principality of Rügen and, thereafter, the Duchy of Pomerania. Under the Treaty of Westphalia in 1648, Rügen, and thus the region of Neuenkirchen, became part of Swedish Pomerania. In 1815, Neuenkirchen went to the Prussian Province of Pomerania as part of New Western Pomerania.

Since 1818, Neuenkirchen has been part of the county (Landkreis or Kreis) of Rügen. Only from 1952 to 1955 was it part of the so-called county of Bergen. From 1955 to 1990 it was part of the county (Kreis) of Rügen within the province of Rostock and, in 1990, also went into the state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. The county (now a Landkreis again) of Rügen merged into the county of Vorpommern-Rügen in 2011.
