Palais Brut

From the outside, the GDR prefabricated building on the edge of Märkische Schweiz faces up to its past without embellishment; inside, it breaks up old structures and surprises with two bright, airy holiday homes.

On the quiet outskirts of the small town of Müncheberg, surrounded by slender trees and the wide fields of Brandenburg, lies the Palais Brut – a semi-detached house built in 1990. The building, which was constructed as a prefabricated building in the typical and now apparently unpopular “WBS 70” system, was deliberately not demolished and replaced by a new building.

At first glance, the compact and solid building uncompromisingly reflects its history, while inside, walls and ceiling areas had to make way for additional window openings, giving the interiors a different spatial effect with more light and bright, cheerful colours. In harmonious combination with the patina of the house, which is occasionally highlighted. A new spatial structure is revealed as the once identical semi-detached houses have been transformed into two modern holiday units of different sizes with unobstructed views over the huge garden and fields.

The large 130 m2 apartment “Duplex” has a fully equipped kitchen, an open-plan living and dining area, three double bedrooms, a gallery level with a daybed and two bathrooms. A total of up to ten sleeping places are available for guests with children. The smaller 55 m2 “Studio” is particularly suitable for couples. Each unit has its own terrace with seating and dining areas, extending the holiday space outdoors.

There is an additional sauna house in the extensive garden that can be used by all guests, preferably by prior arrangement. If you want to discover the natural treasures of the region, all you have to do is visit the Palais Brut basement, where a beekeeping friend offers insights into honey production. Or the next-door Demeter farm “Apfeltraum”, which makes your holiday even more colourful with fruit, vegetables, markets and festivals.

Wunderschönes Wochenende im Studio verbracht - mit sehr zugewandten und freundlichen Support durch die Eigentümer. Das Studio hat alles was es braucht und das ist jeweils sehr geschmackvoll und abgestimmt ausgewählt. Erholung pur - plus tolle Sonnenuntergänge im Panoramafenster! Wir kommen sehr gern wieder!

Das Studio ist nicht nur sehr gut, sondern auch bis ins Detail unheimlich stilvoll ausgestattet und eingerichtet – alles in einem (positiv) interessanten Gebäudetypus. Dazu noch der ebenfalls sehr gelungene Sauna-Pavillon sowie ein schöner Feldweg gegenüber, der in einen Jakobsweg übergeht. Rundum sehr lohnenswert!!!

Wir haben ein Wochenende in der kleinen Wohnung verbracht und waren begeistert. Das Interieur ist sehr schön gestaltet und total gemütlich, sodass wir uns super entspannen konnten. Auch die Sauna ist toll! Der Kontakt zu den Gastgebern war sehr nett und wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt. Tolle Architektur und definitiv ein Ort, um abzuschalten. Wir kommen gerne wieder.

Wir hatten einen unglaublich schönen Aufenthalt. Es ist ein sehr besonderes Objekt und wir haben die ganze Zeit die Architektur, die Liebe zu Leuchtmitteln und zur Kunst bewundert. Es hat uns total rausgeholt aus jeglichem Alltag. Alles ist super ausgestattet - wir haben 2-3 Mal am Tag wunderbar kochen können. Von der sehr geräumigen Sauna gar nicht erst zu sprechen ! Wir kommen super gern wieder und können diesen Ort als ein regenerierendes Erlebnis einer ganz besonderen Art nur empfehlen !
