With the redevelopment of the estate Kraatz, a Berlin couple has fulfilled its dream of country life in the Uckermark and brought new life to the old property. Now you can spend your holidays here in listed architecture. Organic materials such as hemp, clay plaster or chalk colors as well as historical materials such as old bricks, doors or windows were used during the renovation.
In the former coach house you will now live and sleep very comfortably indeed behind broad arched windows and old brick walls. You can even work here, as the coach house has a large studio and work space which can be rented additionally. A second apartment is located in an old farmhouse from the 30s. Its original exterior, with barred windows and an aged door, has been retained, and the interior is decorated with furniture and accessories from the 20s and 30s.
What to do
In one of its listed barns there is a wine press house where (award-winning) wine and juice are made from old apples and pear varieties. Small and large dishes, as well as cakes in the afternoon, are served in the wine tavern (open from April to October).
