Gut Wendgräben

It’s not without reason that Gut Wendgräben is often referred to as ‘a little piece of Tuscany in front of the gates to Berlin’—the resemblance is uncanny. Nonetheless, the listed complex is located in Brandenburg by the Havel near Breitlingsee and Möserscher See. The fields and forests encircling the property truly make it an idyllic getaway. Gut Wendgräben’s owners went to great lengths while renovating it with a clear vision in mind. Its main building, outhouse and baroque manor house eleven apartments.

Gut Wendgräben offers the ideal setting for a relaxed and intimate wedding—if you rent the estate for an entire weekend, the hosts will make sure you have it entirely to yourselves. Whether you celebrate inside or outdoors, the lush courtyard, brick farmhouse, annex, half-timbered barn and main manor house provide space for up to 145 guests. The individually furnished holiday apartments can sleep up to 53 guests. Further accommodation can also be booked nearby if needed. What’s more, you can enjoy all the party planning essentials in one place—Gut Wendgräben is equipped with furniture, glasses, tableware, lighting, speakers and everything else you might need to make your wedding a success, saving you lots of hassle on the organisation front.

Gut Pohnstorf

Kamila and Fabian only pictured themselves living in Berlin. Until the sudden opportunity to take over a listed 1850s manor house at the heart of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern fell into their laps in 2018. The duo has welcomed guests to Gut Pohnstorf’s family-friendly atmosphere ever since. Guests are invited to choose from six apartments and a double room named after prominent female figures from the 19th century. The timber frame house, antique furniture, designer lamps and modern art invite you to let the hours roll by. You can roam around the expansive garden by day and read books in front of the fireplace by night. The breakfast buffet features fresh ingredients from the garden and the surrounding region, making it definite highlight. Guests are free to use the onsite kitchen throughout the rest of the day. You can also pre-order an organic produce box, catch your own dinner in the neighboring trout pond, or take in the historic ambience and treat yourself to a meal at Stadtmühle Teterow.

Gut Pohnstorf hosts seminars and retreats and is a superb venue for weddings. Whether you want your big day to be luxurious or laid-back, this manor house is a beautiful setting for wedding parties of up to 60 people. 30 guests can spend the night in the onsite manor house, while the rest can easily find accommodation in nearby lodgings. The banquet hall and common areas provide plenty of space indoors, while the 10,000 m2 grounds are particularly suitable for outdoor weddings in spring and summer. In addition to serving their classic breakfast buffet, Gut Pohnstorf’s hosts are happy to organize catering for the occasion. If you’re planning a civil ceremony before the festivities, you can get married in the tastefully designed hall at the local Ratshaus in Teterow.

Kranich Museum & Hotel

You don’t stumble across a contemporary art museum and hotel that effortlessly blends the past and present under one roof every day—art historian Bettina Klein achieved this feat at her estate in the small village of Hessenburg, not far from Saaler Bodden. The videos, sculptures and installations exhibited on the upper floor share some commonalities with the six tastefully furnished hotel rooms—the curators demonstrate their ability to grasp trends without going over the top and place their trust in their roots yet steer clear of kitsch. After exploring the Baltic Sea’s wild beaches, a warm bubble bath in an antique freestanding tub awaits you back in your hotel room. Listen to the soft crackling wood burning in the cast-iron stove, or sit by the window and watch the cranes soar by. Come morning, Bettina Klein will spoil you with her homemade delicacies—she serves cakes, tarts and sometimes even a 3-course menu in the in-house café,  Kranichcafé, under old fruit trees.

If your vision for your wedding includes an extravagant atmosphere surrounded by contemporary art, Kranich Museum & Hotel is just the place. The 1840’s manor house can cater to different group sizes. Six apartments in the manor house, two studios in the attic, two apartments in the garden house and a forge on the grounds offer plenty of space for wedding guests to stay the night.
