Nestled in the heart and natural beauty of Schleswig-Holstein, surrounded by elder tree cover, as well as a first class golf course, you will find Hotel Breitenburg. An elegant and lovely luxury hotel, which features outstanding culinary art and is currently developing a large wellness center all focused on the surrounding natural environment.
The former stables of the comital Breitenburg Estate are elaborately being converted into 80 upscale guest rooms. The outer walls of the stables will remain unchanged as an ensemble monument to the estate’s vibrant past. The remainder of the hotel will be constructed from the ground up, creating balance between modern style and traditional elegance.
The history of Breitenburg Castle dates back to the 16th century. In 1526, the knight Johann Rantzau of the Bordesholm Monastery acquired the only hill located within the local marsh, the so-called “Mönkenhof”. On this overgrown dune, he then built the “Bredenbarg”, then later castle Breitenburg. Since 1898 Breitenburg Castle, apart from constant renovations and maintenance work, has remained unchanged and continues to service as a home for one of the oldest aristocratic families of Schleswig-Holstein.

Golf A 27-hole course, playable in three combinations, is located in the beautiful Störniederungen and on the high Geest. The diverse terrain and landscape makes playing golf on this course interesting as well as very enjoyable. The golf course is located directly next to the new hotel, which makes it the perfect place to get away for a few hours during your stay, and escape the fast pace of everyday life.
