Parks and Gardens, Castles and Manors, dog-friendly

A design highlight that can still be experienced today or can be experienced again is the visual axis on the south side of the house across the pond to a hill, the so-called Schlossberg.

Since 1998, the manor house, the remaining farm buildings and significant parts of the park are once again privately owned. The current owner has invested a lot of work and commitment in the house and the estate park in recent years, so that today the manor house with its charming vacation apartments and the historic park can be experienced again.

The 10-hectare estate park still shows its former structure and use:

  • in the immediate vicinity of the house there is the typical roundel of the driveway and garden areas, which were once covered with beds, borders and ornamental shrubs as well as
  • the pond (mirror) located behind the house.
  • Two farm gardens with old fruit trees and the foundations of the former greenhouse are adjacent.
  • In the first half of the 20th century there were also areas for active recreation, such as a tennis court.
  • A design highlight that can still be experienced today or can be experienced again is the visual axis on the south side of the house across the pond to a hill, the so-called Schlossberg.
  • To the west is the actual park, which has a forest-like character due to its transformation in the 19th century.

In accordance with the fashion of the time, an English landscape park was created by planting numerous trees, especially oaks, lime trees, beeches, ash trees, larches and some conifers - as a contrast, especially in winter. Of the former formal Baroque park with rectangular parterres, terraced beds and star-shaped paths ("Jagdstern"), only one avenue remains today, which leads from the house along the edge of the park to FlüIt was replanted with the help of the landscape conservation association "Mecklenburger Agrarkultur" and with subsidies from the state forestry of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

The oval pond on the south side of the house also had the shape of a rectangular water basin in the 18th century. A special attraction of the Landschafspark were the water ditches - currently unfortunately still silted up - created using the Polchow and the topography, over which bridges led, one of which is still preserved today. In addition, the course of the Polchow stream was dammed with boulders to create the impression of a small waterfall. Worth mentioning are also the exotic trees that came into fashion in the middle/end of the 19th century, mostly imported from North America, such as Douglas fir, hickory, tulip tree (Liriodendron), false cypresses and plane trees.
