Gutshaus Stolpe lies in the Peenetal nature reserve on the river Peene, on a 370-acre estate rich in birdlife. Stolpe is a warmly hospitable English-style stately home at the end of drive lined with lime trees. On the estate there is also a thatched ferry house at the water’s edge and the ruins of an 11th-century monastery. The renowned gourmet restaurant with a Michelin star is located in the Gutshaus itself. Weather permitting, breakfast is served on the terrace, with views of the surrounding parkland and majestic trees.
The second restaurant, serving regional dishes plus excellent steaks and schnitzels, is situated in the more than 350-year-old Stolper Fährkrug, with views over the river Peene.
Stolpe was once owned by 18th-century Prussian king Frederick William I, but in the mid-9th century it came into hands of the military family Von Bülow. The present-day owner, Kurt Stürken, meticulously refurbished and restored the Gutshaus and its adjacent buildings.
Gutshaus Stolpe has two restaurants; The Gourmet Restaurant and the Stolper Fährkrug. The Gourmet Restaurant in the manor house has one Michelin Star. A wonderful terrace with views over the estate is also part of the Gourmet Restaurant. Chef Björn Swanson has developed a menu that fuses his culinary impressions. He uses the modern extravagant cooking style of the Berlin top restaurants where he worked previously to bring the best out of the traditional regional and seasonal produce, such as game from the estate and vegetables from the estate’s kitchen garden.
The second restaurant, Stolper Fährkrug, is located in the more than 300 year old thatched inn/ferry house, on the river Peene. A long time ago, the river Peene was the natural border with Sweden. The ferry will carry you across if required. In the 19th century the Fährkrug was the favourite place of the famous German writer/poet Fritz Reuter, who wrote much of his work here inspired by the beautiful landscape. Chef Björn Swanson serves excellent regional dishes in informal surroundings. Weather permitting you can eat out on the terrace with views over the river Peene and the ferry.
The bar is located at the far end of the cheerful lounge.
From 18.00h, closed on Sundays and Mondays.

The manor house’s garden side boasts a spacious terrace with wonderful views over the lawns and mature trees, all part of an estate of more than 370 acres. Weather permitting you can enjoy your breakfast, lunch or dinner here. Or maybe read a good book in one of the lawn chairs scattered over the park. The park’s size makes it an ideal venue for a leisurely walk.
The pleasant terrace of the Stolper Fährkrug is the perfect place to relax and enjoy lunch, dinner or a good glass of beer while gazing out over the river Peene.
The Gutshaus Stolpe Estate is on the river Peene, which is also called the ‘Amazon of the North’. This river, rich in fish, starts life in Kummerower Lake and meanders through a good part of the Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania before it loses itself in the Baltic Sea. The Peene valley is a protected nature reserve and a favourite habitat for many birds, such as the rare sea eagle and osprey. Stolpe offers canoes, rowing boats and in the summer a motor boat for exploring the river.
Gutshaus Stolpe is paradise for horse riders. There are many miles of tracks and six luxury stables to cater for the needs of your horse. Riding cross country is also allowed. Grazing-land available. The nearby island of Usedom has many enjoyable bathing resorts.
