Vorpommern’s kings and dukes

Many castles, palaces and manor houses have survived in Vorpommern. The historic secular buildings of the Baltic Sea region still tell stories about their old masters.

Following the Thirty Years’ War, the estates in Vorpommern became larger and increasingly pompous. People felt more of a need to be ostentatious, and so the estates were tough competition for the castles of the dukes; this is the reason why many manor houses are often referred to as castles today.

Visit the magnificent Renaissance buildings, the medieval feudal estates and the royal estates of the Swedish era. Go on a journey of discovery and get to know the home region of the old noble families. You can even spend the night in some of the manors and castles - definitely an exciting alternative to the Baltic Sea hotels.
