A 180-hectare estate, an English landscaped park with three lakes and horseback riding trails with natural jumps: this is the backdrop of ‘Country Estate’ Burg Schlitz. Add to this Armin and Manuela Hoeck’s warm hospitality, who expertly run this charming Country Manor, and you are guaranteed a wonderful stay in the hills of Mecklenburg.
The castle dates back to 1823. Befitting a genuine castle, the rooms and suites have been elegantly furnished with tailored furniture from the well-known German Werkstätten Hellerau. Sumptuously dining takes place in the Neo-gothic ‘Crest Hall’, as well as in Brasserie Louise, where, in addition to breakfast, the most wonderful dishes are served.
Just as the Spa will seem paradise to you, the 24 horse stables will feel the same for your trusty steed. You can also a hire a horse. The Hoeck family will gladly organise your trip with horse and cart including a richly filled picnic basket. The Baltic Sea can be reached within 45 minutes and both Berlin and Hamburg are only a 1.5-hour drive away.
Gourmet Restaurant im Wappen-Saal and Brasserie Louise use only the best locally grown produce in their kitchens. The local markets offer the finest produce, fish from the nearby lakes and game from the estate. Chef Sabine Teubler of Restaurant im Wappen-Saal offers an exciting culinary adventure to explore the region in 5 courses.

Schlosshotel Burg Schlitz has a beautiful sheltered terrace overlooking the grounds, where you can enjoy lunch or dinner. The estate covers almost 450 acres. Its parkland design offers many opportunities. You could even exercise your horse on a cross country track complete with jumps or just ride out to explore the grounds. There are stables for up to 15 horses, which are tended by professionals. If you are into flora and fauna, the game keeper will be happy to show you around, maybe to pick mushrooms or to observe the wildlife on the estate.
The stunning surroundings of Burg Schlitz have plenty to offer the active guest as well as the guest who comes to relax and unwind. You can ride a bicycle, go for a jog or hike to your heart’s content. Or maybe you would prefer to lie underneath a venerable old tree to read a book.

It will only take you 45 minutes by car to reach the beaches of the Baltic Sea. The Hanse Cities of Rostock and Stralsund are well worth a visit.
