With the redevelopment of the Kraatz Estate in the Uckermark, Florian Profilich and Edda Müller have fulfilled their dream of country life and brought new life to the old property. The conversion of stables and barns was a challenge, but now you can spend your holiday here in listed architecture. Organic materials such as hemp, clay plaster or chalk paints as well as historical materials such as old bricks, doors or windows were used for the renovation.
In the former coach house, you will now enjoy living and sleeping 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. The studio can also be used as a second bedroom. With the sofa bed in the kitchen-living room there is room for up to six guests in the coach house.
A second apartment is located in an old farmhouse from the 1930s. Its original exterior, with muntin windows and an old front door, has been retained, and the interior is decorated with furniture and accessories from the 20s and 30s. On the ground floor there is the kitchen, the dining room, a bedroom and a large bathroom. On the upper floor you will find a living room with a wood-burning stove, three more bedrooms and a bathroom.
There is a wine press in one of the listed barns on the estate. Here, old apple and pear varieties, which grow in the orchards of the surrounding area, are processed in the traditional way to – award-winning! – wine and juice. The restaurant Weinschänke Kraatz in the former cowshed (open from Easter to December) serves seasonal cuisine made from regional products. A small farm shop completes the offer.

2013 Gutshof Kraatz was awarded the special climate prize within the Tourism Awards Uckermarck.
In 2001, Edda Müller and Florian Profitlich bought the former granary of the Kraatz Estate as a residential building. Ten years later, when they felt welcome and accepted in the village, they had completed the conversion of the attached coach house into a holiday home for rent. Soon afterwards, a large barn was available for purchase on the neighbouring property, and the project of a small holiday home evolved into a fruit processing business with a wine tavern. “We are happy to welcome curious guests who want to know something about old types of fruit and their processing into wines, juices and brandies.”
