The Gestütsweg is a riding and carriage trail that connects two long-standing stud farms, the Main and State Stud Farm Neustadt/Dosse and the State Stud Farm Redefin in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. The grand, elegant buildings and extensive parks tell stories about century old traditions.
Whether on horseback or on carriage, the Gestütsweg fascinates with its many highlights. The path can easily be travelled by carriages. The trafficability is partially dependent on weather conditions, therefore it's best to check in with the stations along the way on the path's current conditions before starting the tour.
The marked path leads through different lanndscapes: in Prignitz it runs through the UNESCO biosphere reserve Flusslandschaft Elbe-Brandenburg, idyllic villages where you can enjoy the quiet beauty of nature.

Trail riding in its most beautiful form
“As a German saying goes, the earth's happiness lies on horseback. If you combine this happiness with a gorgeous landscape, you are on the Gestütsweg between Redefin und Neustadt/Dosse. The 170 km long riding and carriage path connects two long-standing stud farms. Regardless whether you experience this trail on horseback or by carriage, the diversity of the Gestütsweg will captivate you. Many parts remain natural and untouched which has a charm all of its own. The bit through Prignitz you can take intriguing detours into the Elbe wetlands with its beautiful river landscape, a unique flora and fauna, as well as idyllic villages. Simply enjoy nature, quiet and slow movement.”
