At Gut Pohnstorf in the middle of Mecklenburg Switzerland, you will not only find old half-timbered architecture, antique furniture and modern art, but also historical female power. Each of the seven holiday suites in the listed manor house bears the name of a special woman of the 19th century. Whether Malwida von Meysenbug, Margarete Steiff, Marie Curie, Bertha Pappenheim, Hedwig Dohm, Clara Schumann or Louise Otto-Peters – they all lived during the founding period of the house around 1850 and left their mark on their time.
As stylish as the ambience, as informal is the atmosphere on the estate, which looks out from a hill into the wide landscape of meadows and forests. Surrounded by a 10,000 m² garden with shady spots to laze, read or eat, as well as a boules court.
Despite its multifaceted history, Gut Pohnstorf has retained its stately flair to this day. Including the historical sightlines and double doors in the Beletage. There is room of every size in the spacious holiday apartments, celebrations or meetings can be held in the Blue Salon or Entrée, and dancing, meditation or conferences can be held in the large hall.
Each unit has its own special features. The bright, sunny Malwida, for example, occupies an impressive 130 m². Margarete is like a little house of its own and extends over two floors. Marie in the north-east gable shines with its roof terrace. The loft-like Bertha is structured only by half-timbered elements. Hedwig is in the central risalit and offers a wonderful view with its three large windows. Clara makes herself comfortable under the roof with a wide vista and a starry sky, and little Louise, the original room of the landlady, is now a charming double room with a kitchen. Everywhere you walk across the old parquet and plank floors, live between antique furniture and modern design, relax both indoors and outdoors, and you could almost forget about time.

Kamila and Dr Fabian Sösemann used to be passionate city dwellers in Berlin until they fell in love with the manor house and its surroundings in 2017. Overnight, they turned their lives around and moved to Pohnstorf in 2018. Living freely, working autonomously and acting sustainably is their essential attitude to life, which they want to share with their guests at Gut Pohnstorf.
