Are you longing for a fairy tale vacation? Do you want to be treated like royalty and actually feel like a prince or princes for a couple of days? At the hunting lodge in Hohen Niendorf (Hohen Niendorf vacation rentals | Hohen Niendorf travel guide) your dreams can come true. This historic castle is located in Mecklenburg—Vorpommern and very close to the Baltic Sea — an oasis of peace and tranquility amidst beautiful and unspoiled nature as far as the eye can see. Since the hunting lodge has been renovated it is possible to rent vacation apartments there and enjoy your very own fairy tale holiday.
Friedrich Bobsien commissioned this neo-gothic castle in 1865 because he needed a grand mansion for his vast family to live in. In 1912 the new owner Count von Wilamowiz had the castle turned into a hunting lodge. Because Hohen Niendorf is quite far away from major cities, the castle remained luckily untouched by the many bombings during the Second World War but later was used as a union trade school during the Soviet occupation. After the fall of the Berlin (Berlin vacation rentals | Berlin travel guide) Wall the castle was carefully restored according to old plans and photographs and today inhibits several splendid apartments that are available for rent.
Not only the building itself is magical, also the palace gardens at Hohen Niendorf Hunting Lodge, with all their rare trees and shrubs, are a treasure for nature lovers. The gardens were created in style of an English landscape garden and contain such agricultural highlights as a 50—feet high holly tree and a holly oak, both more than 120 years old.
Hohen Niendorf is located along Mecklenburg—Vorpommern’s coastline, a recreational wonderland filled with forests, meadows, beaches, sea, lakes, islands and lagoons. It is an ideal place for young and old to either completely relax or enjoy a very active holiday. There is a wide variety of sports activities to choose from. Golfers will love the par—27 championship course at Wittenbeck, water sports lovers can choose between swimming, diving, sailing, surfing, kite surfing and water skiing. Additionally, there are riding stables at near-by Kühlungsborn (Kühlungsborn vacation rentals | Kühlungsborn travel guide) and cyclists can explore the coast along more than 1000 miles of cycle paths.
The Hohen Niendorf Hunting Lodge is a place of magic, where you can take a break from all the demands of every—day life and spend a luxurious holiday feeling like royalty. If you want to get a true sense of Old Europe and enjoy a fairy tale holiday, book your stay at this fantastic castle now.
