Endless, tree-lined avenues leading through a wild and romantic landscape to a beautiful manor house with noble furnishings and vintage parquet floors – this is how many people imagine the typical Mecklenburg-Vorpommern idyll. The hunting lodge Jagdschloss Kotelow is all that and more. The estate’s history can be traced back to the year 1672, when the von Oertzen family came into possession of the property. In 1733, after the predecessor building had burned down, a baroque building was constructed in the middle of the spacious park and used extensively for social events: Musical, as well as political and philosophical, evenings were held here on a regular basis. Beginning in 2001, the house was painstakingly restored and furnished, using traditional craftsmanship and preserving the historical integrity of the building. It now welcomes vacationers and weekend guests looking to enjoy wonderfully relaxing days with long walks in the idyllic landscape. In the interior decoration, special attention has been paid to details, such as curtains of fine silk, historical color schemes, and restored original wood floors. Traditional loam walls provide for ideal indoor-air quality. The Festspiele concerts have revived the hunting lodge’s tradition as a cultural venue. We’ll see you at the end of the avenues.
