Set out from Berlin and escape to Mühle Tornow in Brandenburg for a weekend of riverside explorations and farmhouse delights.
Mühle Tornow was constructed as a watermill by Großer Wentowsee in 1873. Since 2010, Hubert Schneider and his son Christian have been welcoming holiday-goers to vacation on the now-listed estate’s premises. As a civil engineer and a cook, the duo’s skillsets are advantageous in the running of their guesthouse. Not only does Mühle Tornow welcome guests into four lovingly renovated double rooms and a suite, but it also makes sure they are kept satiated with regional dishes from the in-house restaurant, Mühlenrestaurant. Another alternative is the farm shop in the former granary that sells seasonal specialities—perfect for anyone looking to put together a picnic. If you’re feeling active, consider checking out some of the countless cycling and hiking trails in the area. We also recommend heading over to the nearby raft rental. Here, you can let yourself drift across Großer Wentowsee for hours on end. Further bathing spots can be found at Großer- and Kleiner Wentowsee.
