Baltic Manors Festival
Celebration of the cultural heritage of Baltic Manors
Every year in Summer a few hundreds of the Baltic Manors open their doors …
… and celebrate the season and the fact that this region has the highest density of Manor Houses world-wide. More than ten years ago, this festival started in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany, where it´s called Mittsommer Remise .
Now we expand the Festival from Germany to four more countries, Denmark, Sweden, Poland and Lithuania – and are going to launch the international Baltic Manors Festival.
In 2019 we had already two more countries and region onboard, Northern Kashubia in Poland with beautiful Manors and Lolland-Falster in Denmark with a special Exhibition in the Reventlow Museum in Pedestrup. In 2020 due to corona crisis, ,most festival dates had to be postponed.
In 2021 the Baltic Manors Festival will (hopefully) take place in seven regions and five countries as planned. You may look forward to a special Event in Lolland-Falster, Denmark in May. In June there is a month of festivals in Poland with the regions Parseta River Basin and Northern Kashubia, in Western Lithuania, in Kaliningrad Region and the German Festival in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Southeast Skane in Sweden is celebrating the festival again in August 2021.

Celebrating the manorial heritage in the Baltic Region
The Baltic Manors Festival is one weekend or one day to honor the heritage of the baltic estates and manor houses. You may visit Baltic Manors, that are used privately, or wich are in the agricultural business, or such as used with touristic or cultural offers. Especially interesting is to visit the houses, that are still ruins or not ready yet, because then you may see the work in progress and the concepts of restauration. You can listend to the visions and stories of the owners and get a glimpse of the history of these buildings.
What to expect…
Classic sounds on an island with a castle in the background, enjoying the evening sun while strolling through a picturesque parks, conversations with manor owners over a glass of wine by the campfire, enthusiasm on guided tours through old and new walls. You will experience this and much more when we celebrate an enchanting weekend as a country party and here and there even make the shortest night the longest day.
