The red clinker construction is reminiscent of the industrial architecture of the late 19th century. In fact, it was a well-known Berlin industrialist who had his country residence built here in Havelland. In 1866, the entrepreneur Albert Borsig acquired the manor house on Groß Behnitzer See and extended it with agricultural buildings. At the turn of the century, the farm had a size of 2,700 ha and set standards in industrial agriculture.
Today, its historic walls house the Stober Estate, Brandenburg's first certified organic hotel and one of the most sustainable conference hotels in Germany. Visitors can take a look into the past in two permanent exhibitions. In the charmingly situated restaurant Seeterrassen, the food is cooked with market-fresh, regional and predominantly organic products. Enjoy your lunch break on the terrace on the banks of the lake and then continue your day trip from Berlin to the nearby Behnitz Landscape Park or the Ribbeck Palace.
