as far as hooves can take you
The terrain around Burg Schlitz offers almost unlimited possibilities for riding out. Enjoy cross-country riding lanes newly laid-out for your convenience, or have spontaneously a ride through the picturesque scenery wherever and as far as hooves can take you. An excursion with a historical Landau-carriage drawn by black-shining noble Frisian horses offers diversion, too. Furthermore, training-courses are offered for ladies to get experienced in riding gracefully with a side-saddle, and also for learning how to play polo. Since its erection 200 years ago, horseback hunting enjoys a continuous tradition at Burg Schlitz. Stylish Hunting Days are held regularly. 35 horse-boxes are available in our royal stud. Our stable master will professionally and passionately take care of our guests’ horses.
Riding & Drag Hunting
Dismount and rest
For our guests’ horses we have restored our royal stud in 2008 with loving care and are pleased to offer you horse-boxes including bedding, water, oat and hay for a small extra charge.
The royal stud was built in 1848 by Heinrich von Bassewitz. A wing which functioned as a cinema was added in the 1930ies by Emil von Stauss. Many UfA movies received here their premier. In German Democratic Republic time it was used as storehouse. In 2007 it regained its historical function as royal stud.
