Stay in one of the unique Manor Houses
What to visit
As a visitor to this Manor Landscape you will have to choose between a diverse range of holiday homes and touristic offers in the countryside of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. You may find five star standard hotels with superior restaurants and excellent service like Manor Stolpe (Gutshaus Stolpe) in the Peenetal, Castle Burg Schlitz (Schlosshotel Burg Schlitz) in the woods of the lake district or Castle Basthorst (Schlosshotel Basthorst) near the capital town Schwerin. Some Manors impress with a vintage charm in specious holiday apartments like Castle Schmarsow (Schloss Schmarsow) and Manor Rensow (Gutshaus Rensow) in Vorpommern, Manor Zicker (Gut Zucker) at the island of Rügen or Castle Retzow (Schloss Retzow) in the lake plateau.
Old places for new creativity
Venues for culture, art and festivals are creative oasis in the rural areas and entice the urban Boheme to leave buzzing Berlin or Hamburg for good. Visit the Castle Bröllin (Schloss Bröllin) to attend dance workshops, to see modern theatre or art performances or to enjoy contemporary art exhibitions. The baroque Castle Broock (Schloss Broock) is still a sleeping beauty, but you may witness the rebirthing of a cultural monument as a venue for culture, events and tourism. Also still in the making is Manor Vogelsang (Herrenhaus Vogelsang), that claims a new area of romanticism and attracts every year several thousands of visitors for events like the Victorian Arts Festival, a festival for the art of horsemanship (Pferdegeflüster) or the traditional Baroque Dinner Event (Barockes Tafelmahl).
And of course don’t miss the Cultural Heritage Festival of the Manor Houses – “Mittsommer Remise”, every summer end of June in this region. Two days full of open houses to celebrate this special monumental heritage with guided tours, a cultural program and culinary offers.
An outstanding private collection of photo art is displayed in the Castle of Kummerow (Schloss Kummerow), which is also an exceptional piece of sensitive restoration. You will be delighted to find modern pieces by world-renowned photographers, enjoy concerts and events.
Hotels and Restaurants
A very romantic atmosphere provide the hotels at Manor Ludorf (Gutshaus Ludorf) in the lake plateau, Castle Kaarz (Schloss and park Kaarz) near Schwerin, Castle Gamehl (Schlosshotel Gamehl) near the Hanseatic city of Wismar or the Castle Schwansee (schlossgut schwansee) near to the baltic beach. All of them, and many more, also offer a very good cuisine in their restaurants.
