Re:hof Rutenberg

“Back to basics” is the motto at Re:hof Rutenberg. The Dutch artist-couple Martin Hansen and Marieken Verheyen offer a simple but comfortable country vacation in a former parsonage in the Uckermark. With a small budget but a wealth of creativity, passion and aesthetic experience they have transformedd the dilapidated farmyard into a unique holiday village.

There are various apartments and homes: In the hayloft of the ancient stable, three loft apartments with high ceilings and mud-plastered walls have been created. In the former parsonage there is a modern-romantic style apartment and in the farm building at the orchard a wheelchair-accessible apartment. At the back of the garden there are three special architect’s pavilions: the garden house Salix with glass cubes and a translucent south facade, the houses Lupulus and Spinosa with a façade of black-charred boards and panoramic windows.

The fruit and vegetable garden, the sauna as well as several terraces and fireplaces are available to all guests; besides there is a farm shop. The large barn serves as “hotel lounge”. The multifunctional room can be booked for courses, events and celebrations. It also provides a lovely venue for wedding receptions, as the old village church is right next door.

Note: Garden house Salix, designed by architect Peter Grundmann, was shown at the Architecture Biennale 2016 in Venice.


What to do

Five minutes walk to the lake Kronsee. The natural park Uckermark Lakes with extensive woodland, meadows and more lakes is located directly behind the estate.
