Stroll through parks and explore ruins or beautifully renovated houses. Enjoy the wonderful atmosphere of a mild summer evening in front of the backdrop of this cultural beacon of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

 

Manorial landscape

Welcome to Mecklenburg-Vorpommern – the state of castles, gardens and manor houses. For centuries Mecklenburg and also Pomerania was the “Land of Castles and Manor Houses”.

Since the knights “Heinrich des Löwens” crossed the Elbe in the 12th century and initiated the colonization of the East, large structures have been built here. And so it is the large estates with their manor houses and historic farm buildings, with their patronage churches and the magnificent landscape parks, which have shaped the image of the country for a long time.

Even today, the more than 1000 preserved manor houses bear witness to this past era. Over 300 of them have been restored in recent years and are now used for tourism. These manor houses and stately homes were the living centre of an agricultural estate and a manor village. These manor villages are situated in the middle of a wonderful natural landscape and are ideal for relaxing holidays and nature exploration as well as holidays with culture.

On the following pages you will find some of the most beautiful manor houses of our country, built in the most different styles, which have opened their doors for you as a guest.

 

About

Our cultural heritage – the manor estates and their villages

The many manor houses, castles and stately homes in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania still bear witness to their former splendour and size, but above all to the special economic structures in the history of the state.

More than 2,000 stately homes were located there, more than 1,000 of which are still preserved today. In the course of land reform and social restructuring, the once stately manor houses lost their function. Thus began a sad chapter for the castles and manor houses, most of which are now listed buildings. After the fall of the Wall, some of the old or new owners renovated and restored these architectural gems. Today, many of the castles and manor houses are filled with life again.

The baltic manors once again form a new centre of social life in some villages, thus counteracting migration and demographic change.

The manor villages with the manor ensembles and parks as a cultural asset of the region in the entire Baltic area are my personal concern and my passion. Therefore, my work in the association and for the baltic manors used for tourism is continued in the accompaniment of such projects in the form of mediation of these properties and in the consultation on utilization concepts.

I wish the manor and castle hotels always nice guests and the guests a fantastic stay in our region.

Many greetings, Manfred Achtenhagen – chairman –

New concepts for old manor houses

The association for historic houses used for tourism in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern has been in existence for around 20 years and combines the owners’ experience in the restoration and use of privately owned castles and manor houses. The range of offers extends from guesthouses with holiday flats to 5-star houses. What they all have in common is their rural location, far away from the usual streams of tourists, and the special conditions in a historical building. Meanwhile the association counts 30 members and some supporting members. Our aim is to combine the forces and finances for marketing, public relations and lobby work.

The advantages of membership:

  • a strong community
  • a group full of people with experience and the love for old houses
  • lobby work and press relations
  • marketing activities

A membership including marketing service is possible from 250,00 €, depending on the number of rooms.

Sponsoring membership – become a manor house saver!
Already from 150,- € per year! You can support the association and our activities for the preservation of the cultural assets of castles and manor houses by becoming a supporting member.

We are pleased about your interest.  Please contact chairman Manfred Achtenhagen: 03 99 31 – 8 40 11
