When passing through the imposing red brick portal lined with old sandstone sculptures, visitors enter a very special place. There are the old guesthouse, the stables, the distillery, the granary, tall old trees on the banks of the lake. The estate is a gem tucked on the banks of Groß Behnitzer See in the Havelland region, 40 kilometres west of Berlin. Its history as a manor owned by the Borsig dynasty of entrepreneurs is as exciting as its presence.

In the 19th century, the name Borsig chiefly represented one thing, namely railways. August Borsig (1804-1854) earned a fortune with his factory which would soon become a popular means of transportation. His son Albert continued the successful business henceforth. In 1866, he purchased for himself and his family a languishing estate at Groß Behnitzer See to provide home-made food to the factory cafeterias produced at his state-of-the-art agrarian model plant. An enormous ensemble of brick buildings was erected to suit this purpose. The manor remained in family hands until 1945. After becoming a subject of expropriation, the manor started deteriorating. 50 years later, all that was left of the estate was a ruin. 

Then, the year 2000 heralded a new chapter. Michael Stober acquired the estate, restored the historic site previously classified as “impossible to restore”, and transformed it into Germany’s most sustainable conference hotel. Today, it is a tourist attraction in the Havelland region. The ensemble comprises a hotel, the “Seeterrassen” Restaurant, a wine parlour, as well as 25 rooms available for conferences, weddings and events.

Two permanent exhibitions provide interesting insights into the estate’s present day events and history, dating back to the year 1173. Among them also, the secret meetings of the “Kreisauer Kreis” group held at the estate during the Third Reich.

Instant covid-tests for guests, safety and hygiene concepts according to R.I.F.E.L as well as individual advice concerning company-internal terms are offered.

Recommendations:
  • The perfect space to hold conferences, seminars, conventions or meetings, allowing you to advance and learn with “spirit” while being surrounded by nature yet near the city.
  • Getting married on the lakeshore: Dream wedding in a stylish historic ambience nestled in a park landscape on the banks of Groß Behnitzer See
  • Charging station at the administrative building on the historic court
