Open gardens in Prignitz

The diverse natural and cultural landscape of Prignitz has a lot to offer: Greenery not only characterizes the vast meadows, pastures and forests - the towns and villages are also green and blooming.

The small front gardens with beds made of boxwood, taxus or flowering plants are particularly beautiful – the residents' calling cards. Behind many houses there are often gardens in traditional or individual styles. The garden owners invite you to visit their private green oasis.

A current overview of all participating gardens can be found below.

A garden paradise for people and animals

A wonderful example of how the new owners have transformed a piece of land formerly used by small farmers into a garden paradise with an almost 300-year-old Kätner half-timbered house. After everything had been empty for years, the 3,600 m² plot of land was redesigned into this garden wonder in 1995, and in 2006 the house was extensively refurbished in accordance with the ecological guidelines. The original division of the courtyard, orchard and cattle paddock now appears as a colorful shrub and heather garden with a quail aviary, a berry garden with an adjoining relaxation area and Japanese elements. In addition, the rose and herb fragrance garden - reminiscent of a mini monastery garden - small orchards with wild hedges and a pond that are used by chickens and geese are enchanting. The goats graze in a park-like paddock. All around, native woody plants offer birds protection and food.

The oak with the farmer's rose garden

The crown of the oak appears almost huge directly behind the barn. It welcomes the garden visitor when entering the approx. 1800 m2 farm garden and shapes the garden in a very special way. There is a lot to see and discover here: Various roses and ornamental trees can be found as well as old fruit trees and a flower meadow. Flower and perennial beds structure the garden and create new lines of sight. Almost in competition with the abundance of flowers in the garden and on the courtyard are the exhibited pictures, candles, teddies and knitting.

Castle grounds Lenzen

The tour through the four-hectare listed park of Lenzen Castle gives plenty of food for thought. In this natural poetry garden there are nine works of art between flowering herb meadows, shrub beds and islands of trees. With selected quotes from natural philosophy, they combine the relationship between man and nature and thus give impulses to think about us and our relationship to nature. In the back part
of the listed castle park is the Auen-Reich. On a 400 m long circular path you get insights into the special achievements of a near-natural floodplain landscape. Heaps of stones and deadwood hedges set design accents in the extensive garden area and help to create natural habitats, e.g. for grass snakes, shrews, earwigs and co. This year, flower strips of a special kind are appearing on swamp and lean beds. In the large wild herb meadow, more light and space is given to native flowering plants through initial planting, but also through the targeted removal of fast-growing and nutrient-depleting grasses.

Show, sighting and self-catering garden

This 1.3 hectare site, idyllically situated by the forest, has been used for horticultural purposes since the late 1920s and has been in the hands of the organic perennial nursery Teske since 2013. The two gardeners see their plantings as a field of experimentation. They are constantly gaining new knowledge about a wide variety of plants and their possible combinations. In addition to the cultivated varieties, selected wild perennials also have a permanent place in the natural garden and the mother plant quarters. The garden design with many wild herbs also serves as a meeting point for insects and birds. In summer, the ensemble of old buildings and the remaining walls of former greenhouses of the colorful variety of plants provides a cultural landscape stage for a rarely high number of butterflies. Even rare species such as the lean-grass mother-of-pearl butterfly, aurora butterfly and the bumblebee hawkmoth find their habitat here.

Groß Pankow manor park

The manor park was added to the manor house (1827) by Carl T. Gans Elern Herr
Putlitz laid out as a Biedermeier park after the estate was given areas south of the Panke when it was separated. The family cemetery was laid out in 1848, where the ivy-covered graves of the estate residents and their family members are still buried today. 1891
In 1891 the manor house and park underwent conversions and extensions under Konrad Gans Noble Herr zu Putlitz, the original park is only part of the whole. Remains of a partially removed swamp oak, silver maple, hornbeam and spruce and a small avenue of linden trees are witnesses of this time. Today the park is about 4 hectares in size. It is lined with rhododendrons and azaleas, lawns, meadows full of flowers, a colorful mixture of trees and the idyllic pond fed by underground springs. Between the parking lot on the south and the main house, the central path is bordered with flower beds, which also extend to the west and east of the house.

Healing Art Garden Zempow

It will never be finished, the 'anti-authoritarian' garden of the Zempower. It defies the summer drought and changes intentionally and unintentionally, becoming more and more beautiful in the process. ›Instant beds‹ (according to perma culture) with herbs, vegetables, flowers and wild herbs as well as native, robust perennials show the whole palette of natural colors. Shrubs, raised beds, rainwater-fed wet biotopes and trees, which now also provide shade, enrich the approx. 6,000 m2 large natural oasis. Ceramic treasures can be found everywhere. In the meanwhile covered whirlpool house, which has been given an atmospheric floor based on the natural horoscope of the Indians according to the motto: “Nature knows no waste”, you can enjoy the garden like in other cozy places.

Green Oasis

This green oasis is located behind the excursion restaurant on a 6,000 m² garden paradise. The large garden inspires with a swimming pond and the very varied planting. These include shrub peonies, Judas tree, beautiful shrub, sickle fir, rock pear and various roses. Visitors on the sensory staircase are rewarded with the best view of the orchard and the fish pond. The kitchen garden invites you to snack and try: delicious aronia berries, sloes or the black mulberry as a somewhat rarer fruit besides the well-known berries. There are also plant cuttings for sale. A small petting zoo allows animal lovers to come into contact with animals.

Welcome to a diverse garden

In more than 30 years, a front, courtyard, kitchen and orchard with pond landscapes, winter gardens and a greenhouse was built around the half-timbered house. A colorful world of plants and animals invites you to linger: dwarf rabbits, chickens, canaries as well as cats and dogs, which animate the approximately 3,200 m2 property. There is a small playground, cozy sitting areas and a walkway with many nesting opportunities for birds and insects. Rare trees such as umbrella, hemlock and Korean fir or the silk tree are astonishing. Of the flowering and leafy plants, the succulent beds, ericas and over 30 types of daylily are particularly noteworthy. Also the topiary trees or the collection of up to 40 years old potted plants (camellias, agapanthus, fuchsias, oleanders and hibiscus) are eye-catchers.
An information stand and a small plant market top off your stay. We look forward to your visit and some interesting discussions.

Our near natural garden

The large garden has been cultivated for almost 20 years and includes several areas:
a large pond, several perennial beds, a rockery mound and a formal one
Rose garden, whose beds are now bordered with a young yew hedge (instead of boxwood). Strawberries, vegetables and herbs as well as some berry bushes grow in several raised beds. Fruit trees and a greenhouse with tomatoes complement the gardener couple's supply of high-quality food. A meadow with many early bloomers and flowering wild plants follows. The rear part of the garden has an Asian influence and has, among other things, two small ponds and formed trees. The garden is largely natural and has lush climbing and flowering plants, making it a habitat for many insects, butterflies and birds.

Abbey of the Holy Sepulchre

The almost completely preserved monastery complex, which has been rebuilt again and again in the past, is a former Cistercian monastery in Heiligengrabe, which became a Protestant monastery for noble women after the Reformation. This place is still dedicated to the spiritual life. On an area of ​​around five hectares, there are several attractive horticultural facilities such as the baroque half-timbered houses with their uniformly designed front gardens. The planting ranges from perennials and herbs to roses and shrubs. The ponds, which were only renatured in the past two years, are lined with old trees. Attractive specimens include: a gnarled catapla, a bald cypress and a large star magnolia that lets its white flowers shine in spring. In 2004 a herb garden was laid out in an area enclosed by a beech hedge. It houses around 80 medicinal and kitchen herbs, which, depending on the type of application, find their place in various box beds. The calm, almost meditative-looking area is complemented by perennials and shrubs.

Exploration of old strains

In the European stork village of Rühstädt, the NABU visitor center invites you to take a tour of its sustainably cultivated garden. Many types of vegetables, herbs and ornamental plants are presented here in beds, various raised beds and tubs. Only historical crops, some of which come from seed banks or private plant lovers, are grown here. In the “Competence centers for agrobiodiversity in gardens” project funded by the state of Brandenburg, NABU garden supervisor Ellen Beuster can not only live out her private passion, but also pass on her knowledge to interested parties. — There will also be a gardening festival on 'Garden Day' on June 12 with a small regional market featuring local handicrafts and regional foods.

Sculpture garden

The 4,000 m² living and working space of the artist cooperative ›Atelier im Grünen‹ is reminiscent of a landscape park. At the former inspector's house in the village, impressive old trees meet flowering shrubs and green lawns. The garden nature encounters three-dimensional art objects in an exciting way, which create a very special atmosphere through this type of design. The garden is divided into different segments and is constantly changing due to the rhythm of the seasons. Works made of ceramics, steel and wood enter into a symbiosis with floral and colorful plant shapes. This turns a visit to the garden into an exciting journey of discovery. Lush bird hedges surround the area.

Blooming dreams under old trees

The garden of the Hase family is approx. 2,400m2 and has many ›faces‹ – depending on the
where to look. There are blooming accents in every season, even in winter it blooms
40 year old witch hazel cut like an umbrella. In summer, the colorful perennial beds delight visitors. On small paths - broken up by open spaces with some seating - visitors stroll along under special trees that are up to 90 years old. Part of the garden was created in 1932 as an arboretum by a master gardener. Conifers and rhododendrons are the main stock. But the highlights are a Colorado fir and a sequoia. But the rhododendron collection, which now has almost 60 different varieties, is also admirable. Some of these old plants are up to three meters high.

Diverse cottage garden

Maik Misch designs his cottage garden according to ecological and natural aspects.
He relaxes him every day according to the motto: “Weed, I want to be your gardener!” And that
in times when everyone is petting the rose. For 15 years, the enthusiastic hobby gardener has been realizing his dream of a garden on more than 1,000m2. Numerous birds and insects (it is not possible to list all of them) come together to find food and a place to live. The garden has developed so wonderfully that in 2020 it was voted second best in the “Garden of Diversity” competition by the “Prignitz – Ruppiner Land Landscape Conservation Association”.

Neuhausen Castle Park

Neuhausen Castle is surrounded by a garden and park, both close to nature and low maintenance
designed and a total of about two hectares in size. So there is plenty of room for formal areas with lawn,
Potted plants and some exotic plants, for lean meadows, meadow orchards and for a small one
vegetable garden. The focus is on the preservation and development of biological diversity: It is allowed
grow what wants to grow by itself. What is planted is what is native and serves insects and/or – especially in the case of trees – has the potential to defy climate change. Pesticides are not used and irrigation is largely avoided. — The origin of the castle dates back to the 12th century in the form of a double castle: some remains of the wall in the garden still bear witness to this. After an eventful history and various conversions, the castle was extensively renovated from the mid-1990s, for which it received 1st prize in the Brandenburg Monument Prize in 2004.

A ›small park‹ on the Martinshof

The spacious small park with a garden of the senses is a place of being together, of nature, of rest and relaxation. The residents of the Martinshof
like to use the more than 220 m long barrier-free path created here, along which seating groups
and benches invite you to linger. New perspectives open up again and again. Flowers, shrubs and shrubs bloom in all seasons. Many scents stimulate the senses in a variety of ways, the differently lined paths also provide new impressions - and the small vegetable garden provides fresh food for the kitchen. Guests are welcome in the small park. Our gardener, Mrs. Pamin, offers guided tours.

Harmony in the garden

Three years ago, work began on redesigning the garden based on the five elements. From then on, the plants were selected in such a way that balance and harmony with the size and colors in the approximately 2,000 m2 garden were in the foreground. This resulted in calm and balancing, dynamic and contrasting garden areas. These include one
Rhododendron hedge, several raised beds, exotic trees and various types of fruit trees. Various paved areas are lined with bird protection hedges and a box tree garden. The creative workshop is always looking for new harmonies. The garden is also suitable for wheelchair users.

Resort garden

The “holiday resort garden” begins in front of the house with a small part of the approximately 3,000 m2 garden area. Behind the farm and barn, water takes center stage with a large pond - a home for frogs and dragonflies - a watercourse and two waterfalls. The pond excavation was shaped into a small mountain and bordered with fieldstone walls, which provide shelter for many small animals. Several flower beds, a raised bed and a herb snail offer a balance. Several seating options invite you to coffee and homemade cakes. — There are also two greenhouses here: the smaller one grows vegetables such as cucumbers and grapevines, while the larger one grows different types of tomatoes, peppers and pumpkins. Outside, the cottage garden is magnificent with vegetables, strawberries, potatoes, flowers such as dahlias and some blueberry bushes. Tall conifers and deciduous trees provide nesting sites for many bird species such as wagtails and woodpeckers.

Asian garden flair

… awaits the guests in Blumenthal at the Stahlberg family. On a garden area of
Approx. 2000m2 an Asian garden with an adjoining cottage garden was created in the last 17 years. Characteristic of this Asian garden are large dry gardens,
the tea house, the bonsai garden and the pond complex. — Many topiaries, grasses, hostas,
Perennials and stones are among the design elements. — The guests can also explore the many flower beds with perennials, roses and shrubs around the house and also stroll through the trellis orchard. — The entire garden offers many insects and birds countless places to hide and nest. And with a bit of luck, there will be offspring again this year in the stork's nest built in 1990 on the property of the Stahlberg family.
