What can you imagine more beautiful than to experience the Mecklenburg countryside on horseback or by horse-drawn carriage? We in Stuthof offer our guests this possibility and much more.

Close to the Hanseatic city of Rostock lies the 6000 hectare forest area "Rostock Heath" with an approx. 60 km long network of riding and driving trails. From the Stuthof riding stable you can take great rides into the nature and to the sea with your own horse or with a rental horse. The bathing area in the Rostock Heath is ready for riders and horses all year round and worth a trip.

Or take a ride in a carriage or a Kremser from Stuthof through the Rostock Heath. During the ride you can also exchange places with the coachman for a short time and take the lines in your own hand. Experience an exciting ride, which can also last longer if you wish.
