Bike Touring Highlight
Mellenthin was next to Gothen, detectable since the 14th century, a parent of the noble family of Neuenkirchen. The Mellenthin Castle was built between 1575 and 1580 on behalf of Rüdiger von Nienkerken (Neuenkirchen), a council of the Duke Ernst Ludwig von Pommern-Wolgast. Baumeister was allegedly Antonio Wilhelmi. The remnant of a previous building is located away from it in Gutspark.
After the extinction of the family of Neuenkirchen in 1641 and the end of the Thirty Years' War, Johan Axelsson Oxenstierna was enfeoffed by the Swedish Queen Christina with the estate now in Swedish Pomerania. A few years later Mellenthin came into the possession of General Burchard Müller von der Luehne. His descendants owned the estate until 1747. Then it was allodifiziert and acquired at a public auction by the Prussian military council Bleichert Peter von Meyenn. After a bankruptcy, the estate Mellenthin 1818 came to the Wittchow family.
After the expropriation of the owners after the end of the Second World War, the building complex was used by the community, which furnished here, among other things, apartments, a kindergarten and a local history museum. In GDR times, a restaurant came to the castle. After the reunification, the moated castle was privatized in 2001 and developed into a hotel with gastronomy, in which since October 2011 a beer brewery is operated.

Due to the many beautiful pictures, I can save a lot ... Fact, since 1575-1596 built water castle is privately owned and houses a hotel, a brewery and a coffee roasting. In the summer months, all kinds of medieval festivals take place almost every day.
Near the castle is located in the center of the old church with ancient tombs (unfortunately also of some small children!). Outstanding are the two ancient oaks on the site! Unfortunately, the church was closed :-(
One of the two oak trees is listed as a natural monument and was estimated this year in March to 670 (!) Years !!!

Very pleasant hotel with a small wellness area (bio sauna max 60 ° C, Finnish sauna, Fußwärmebecken, different showers, relaxation area).The restaurant offers a good kitchen with plenty of choice. Beers from our own production are offered. The selection of wines is rather limited.In the brewery rooms (with the exception of Sunday and Monday) theme nights are sometimes offered with live music. These topics are just a matter of taste ...
