  HANSESTADT LÜBECK

The Holsten Gate, marzipan, Thomas Mann, UNESCO world heritage site - these are the things we associate with Lübeck. The old city, surrounded by water with around 1800 listed buildings, historical pathways and crooked lanes is not only beautiful to look at but is the hub of a lively city with 214,000 inhabitants. Once an independent free city, Lübeck is today the largest city in Schleswig-Holstein and has been given the title of the cultural capital of the North. Lübeck is very proud of its three Nobel Prize winners. Thomas Mann (1875-1955 - Nobel Prize for Literature 1929), Willy Brandt (1913-1992 - Nobel Peace Prize 1971) and Günter Grass (born 1927 in Danzig, Nobel Prize for Literature 1999). But when we think of Lübeck it is the taste of marzipan that we have in our mouths. Here, these treats, as calorie rich as they are delicious, are served with a glass of "Rotspon", a well-known Lübecker Bordeaux wine refined there.

Today, Lübeck is full of charm and is a cosmopolitan international harbour city. The city harbour as well as the ferry harbour in Lübeck-Travemünde show how time has not stood still. From here boats start off on their journey to Sweden, Denmark, Finland, the Baltic States and Russia.

 

HANSESTADT WISMAR - UNESCO-WORLD HERITAGE SITE

The old and, at the same time, lively city of Hansestadt on the Baltic Sea offers historical and listed monuments, tourist attractions, architectural and cultural monuments, history and an unmistakable flair. This lovely city is situated in the slip stream of the island of Poel in the Bay of Mecklenburg. From afar you can already catch a glimpse of the St George and St Nikolai churches, both steeped in history, as well as the tower of St Marie, all inviting you to come and take a closer look at what Hansestadt has to offer. Wismar is a busy centre in the north with its exciting marriage of the old and the new. Its young people and resident university students bring the city’s streets to life.

SCHWERIN REGIONAL CAPITAL

This picturesque residential city has a wide selection of attractions to charm you. A truly unique example is the fairy-tale castle on an island in the middle of the lake. Legend has it that it was here that sleeping beauty once slept. Once home to the Mecklenburg dukes, it now houses the state parliament of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the throne room and the impressive Schloss museum.  The castle and palace gardens are masterfully landscaped. Around the Mühlenteich, which was built in the 13th century, there are numerous buildings steeped in history. One of these is the Arsenal, built as the armoury of the Grand Ducal Army by Hofbaurat Demmler in 1837. Today this Tudor gothic style building is the seat of the Ministry of the Interior for Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Other things well worth visiting include the Mecklenburg State Theatre, the Cathedral and Market Square, the Freilichtmuseum, the Sternwarte, the historic city centre and the magnificent Schlossfestspiele.

HANSAPARK SIERKSDORF

Germany's only amusement park by the sea, the fantastic Hansapark is a wonderful experience for the whole family. Cowboys, Indians, trappers, saloon heroes, gold miners, vaudeville artists, wizards, with guaranteed goose bumps and breath-taking new ride experiences like the "Curse of Novgorod”, which goes from 0 to 100 km / h in 1.4 seconds. A new addition is the “Hanse in Europe” exhibition, a parrot show, cinema fun, a children's playground, various themed rides for children from 1 to 6 years old, such as reindeer sleighs, a jungle jeep, stagecoach and Mexican market carriages.

ADVENTURE AND TIGER PARK DASSOW

New this year: two lion cubs called Leroy and Massai are turning the tiger park upside down.

HISTORY

 

The fine, white mansion on the shore of the Bay of Lübeck welcomes its guests with the words: "Ich habe es mit Gottes Gunst erbaut. Möge Gott der Beschützer, dem Errichteten wohl gesonnen sein”, which roughly translates as, I have built it with God's favour. May God be the protector, the accomplished one.

The classicist building dating to 1745 was built on a truly incomparable spot with a view of the sea. The land is wide here, the nature strong, the beach natural and the sea just goes on forever. The tranquillity of the landscape gives peace and strength: Pure freedom.

The coats of arms of three noble houses are mounted on a plaque on the court side of the three-storey manor house. In the middle of Booth's coat-of-arms a mastless boat is depicted in the sea under a clouded sky. This is not without reason, as the saying goes that once a knight fell into distress on a stormy sea. He swore should he survive the storm that he would build three villages. He did survive, and landed in Schwansee, and from that point on he called himself "Booth" and fulfilled his promise: He founded the villages of Brook, Hohenschönberg and Kalkhorst, where he built a church around 1230. The owner of the manor in Gross Schwansee is the descendant, Wilhelm Ludwig Hartwig von Booth.

The manor estate has changed very little. The manor’s pond, once lined with lime trees, is still there.

In the winter, they would take ice from the pond to keep milk and meat cool for the summer in the ice cellar.  There are three artesian springs in the grounds. One supplied those living in the house with their drinking water, another was used for the animals. The sources are served by wells from which the water is piped to supply the drinking water.

The impressive red building to the left of the manor house was once a horse stable, later a shed, and today houses the "Brasserie" with its Mecklenburg specialities, a large hall, as well as the wellness floor with its saunas and cosmetic treatments.

In addition to the manor house with its park and stable buildings, the Groß Schwansee estate also had an administrator's house, labourer's cottage, a forester's house, a forge, a school, a coachman's house and a fisherman's cottage.

Die große Bildsammlung verschwand, das Geschirr und Besteck wurde in der Küche des Schulinternats, das in Schwansee eingerichtet wurde, benutzt, die Ritterrüstungen versteckten sich auf dem Boden und eine wertvolle Münzsammlung wurde Jahre später ausgegraben.

  • 1998

    Silvius Dornier erwarb die Anlage. Die Sanierung des Gutshauses wurde mit hohem finanziellen Aufwand durchgeführt. Das Schlossgut und der ehemalige Pferdestall wurden restauriert, das elegante Parkgebäude errichtet und nun ist das schlossgut gross schwansee eine kleine, exklusive Flucht aus dem Alltag für Gäste mit Niveau.
