Castle or Manor House


Manor House Alt Vorwerk

Knight Martin von Brützkow was the owner in the 13th century. Later the estate came under the ownership of Lord von Ferber, who sold the Alt and Neu Vorwerk (ca. 800 ha.) estates for 80,000 Reichsthaler to Carl von Oertzen in 1826.




The estates were given by lottery to Hugo von Oertzen in 1851, the youngest son of Carl von Oertzen. He had the new manor house built by the architect Heinrich Gustav Thormann from 1859 to 1861 for the sum of 20,000 Reichsthaler. The Alt and Neu Vorwerk estates went to Otto-Jasper von Oertzen in 1918, the youngest son of Hugo von Oertzen. Otto-Jasper von Oertzen adopted his nephew Arthur in 1935. He could no longer accept his inheritance because of the political circumstances after 1945. Otto-Jasper von Oertzen died at Alt Vorwerk in 1945, after Soviet troops marched in, and was buried in the manor house park.

The manor house is in private ownership today.

The manor house has its old glory after eight years of renovation and rebuilding. There are five comfortable holiday apartments in different sizes for guests.
