Twice a day, small children and interested guests gather in front of the Boltenhof estate. In the morning and in the evening, a tour of the farm takes place. They can look over the shoulders of the employees of the estate. They visit the goats and sheep, the chickens, ponies and donkeys. The children can ask questions, help with feeding and, at the end of the tour, help count the chicken eggs.
During the tour of the Boltenhof estate, the lime tree avenue, an old swing pump under a large weeping willow and the animal hustle and bustle on the farm give a small impression of what life must have been like on the former knight's estate. All the buildings of the Boltenhof estate are well preserved and have been carefully restored.
Leaving the park in a southerly direction, you have to climb over a small fence. Directly after that is the cow pasture where the estate's Limousin cattle graze. About 80 hectares of land belong to the Boltenhof estate - enough to spend hours exploring and getting to know nature. Raising human awareness of the precious environment is one of the tasks of today's Gut Boltenhof.

ArchitectureThe main building of Gut Boltenhof is the old manor house. It houses a farm shop, a restaurant and the hotel rooms. The house is a listed building and was renovated as true to the original as possible. Creaking floorboards, mighty roof beams and high ceilings testify to the history of the house, which had been established as a manor since 1890.
FoodRegional cuisine is not neglected at Gut Boltenhof. Beef from your own pasture, eggs from the chicken coop and trout from Lychen find their way onto the house table. Insofar as it is possible and sensible, organic food is also used in cooking - but only if it has not traveled a long way.
Gut Boltenhof was the cultural center of the place for over 100 years. It is important to Jan-Uwe that the estate regains this status. Young people from other villages often come to use the good internet connection and children's day is celebrated at Gut Boltenhof every year. The people from the neighborhood are invited.
