IT IS HERE THAT MECKLENBURG-VORPOMMERN OPENS ITS HEART FOR YOU !

Landscape Park

Feel embraced by wideness and distance which characterize the 450 acres of our Landscape Park by which Burg Schlitz is surrounded like a lush, green carpet. Its completion took 50 years and followed the model of an English landscape park.

Once even Goethe took a stroll through the breathtaking nature of this idyllic park. So did the poetic family von Arnim who appreciated this place to seek inspiration for new works.

A wide-stretched terrain with broad alleys, awe-inspiring old trees, secluded lakes, 50 monuments in the form of obelisks, grottos, columns and countless little places which invite to linger.

ABSOLUTELY WORTH SEEING
… is the world-renowned “Fountain of the Nymphs”. Designed in 1903 by Walter Schott in the Art Nouveau style, it had originally been created for the fountain courtyard of the Wertheim Department Store in Berlin and acquired by Emil von Stauss who brought it to Burg Schlitz in the 1930ies. It shows three more or less life-size nymphs of bronze, dancing on the edge of a sandstone-trough around a fountain. It is also called “Fountain of the Dancing Girls” and is unquestionably a jewel of our park. Another original of this fountain can be found in the Central Park of New York.

Right next to the “Fountain of the Nymphs” the “Karolinen Chapel” is located, which has recently been elaborately restored, and which Hans Count von Schlitz had dedicated to his mother-in-law Karoline Imperial Countess von Goertz-Schlitz. For church weddings 70 persons can be accommodated here.

There are altogether 50 monuments which Count von Schlitz had erected in memory of his family, poets or other people particularly dear to him: obelisks, columns, grottos and even lakes.

And do not miss the dream-like view of Lake Malchin from our imposing Roetelberg.
