Basic description

Baltic Sea and surrounded by nature reserves with many fields, woods, ponds and rivers. The Manor is a very interesting brick building from 1892/93 with a beautiful interior. The walls are covered with clay and painted with lime casein paint. The historical wooden floor planks are revealed and renovated. Most of the rooms are equipped with historical furniture, what gives the house a magnificent attraction.
The manor house is surrounded by a huge former park with old trees. A stone-oven invites to experience conventional bakery and the fireplace assures nice evenings in the nature. The sports area with a football-ground and volleyball-net is just beside. The participants can also enjoy their leisure time discovering the Mecklenburg Lake District.

Type of work

The former park surrounding the manor house had been unused and abandoned for decades. Year by year, Open Houses brings back to life another part of the huge garden area. Also, this year the gardening and cleaning works at the historical park will be continued. The participants will mow the lawn, cut bushes and trees and reconstruct paths. In the back part of the park that is still an inaccessible wilderness they will sort out stones to use them later for walls or paths and level the ground. In addition, they will replace the old, broken fence by a new one.Beside that the volunteers will carry out small handcraft works as repair a storage house for fire wood, paint fences and similar tasks.
