Castle Hotel & Manor House Klink

The neo-renaissance style castle Klink in its filigree design arises on a headland between the Kölpinsee and the Müritz. (Both are lakes in the Mecklenburg lake district, the Müritz being the largest lake)

The castle was built up to 1898 according to plans by the architects Dinklage and Grisebach, building owner was the von Schnitzler family. In 1913 a banquet hall was added.

Through the centuries Klink underwent frequent changes of ownership: in 1375 the Gamm family acquired the village, later it went to the von Below family. In 1650 the Holstein family owned it, followed by the families Kähler, Hahn and Hermann until the estate was finally purchased by the Schnitzler family in 1898.

After the expropriation in 1945 of the last owner Hedwig von Schnitzler refugees first moved into the manor house. The building was later renovated and used as a school training centre and as holiday accommodation. After 1989 the manor house stood empty and visibly fell into disrepair until it was purchased by the current owners in 1996.

After extensive renovation the building is now a Castle Hotel.

Next to the castle there is the "Alte Gutshaus" (old manor house) which was also built up to 1898 and served as administration building, accommodation for guests, and was the estate managers residence. This house was also used to accommodate refugees after 1945, later it became a school, it also housed the office of the LPG (agricultural production cooperative), and the post office. In 1997 the building was opened up as the Hotel Altes Gutshaus.
