An introduction to Gut Üselitz

How would you describe Gut Üselitz in a nutshell?

Gut Üselitz is a 16th century Renaissance manor with 7 beautiful vacation apartment rentals. It is located in the south of the island of Rügen, which is in Northeast Germany. As one of the island’s oldest buildings, it has been reconstructed into an elegant estate, which is surrounded entirely by water. All year round the sunsets are reflected in the water as spectacular plays of colour, and are simply the most beautiful sunsets on the entire island.

What was your inspiration to buy and renovate the manor?

We had been looking for a building that was architecturally and historically interesting, and at the same time set in an untouched landscape. What we found is a true Renaissance ruin, with no highway, supermarket, or hospital next to it. We had to start basically from scratch, as there was no electricity or water at the property. That appealed to us.

How would you describe the architecture and interior design?

Everything that was still in its original state had precedence over anything new. There are still pieces of original Renaissance finery which are 500 years old. The new walls that were erected were plastered smoothly, so that the rough texture of the original walls stands out. For example, on the ground floor you can still see the remains of cross vaults, niches, and stucco. The farther up you go in the house, the more modern and modest it becomes.

The decision for a modern treatment for the new elements comes from my husband’s architectural knowledge, since he studied the preservation of historical monuments. His fundamental notion is that one should always be able to tell which parts of an architectural piece were added on later.

How would you describe the atmosphere at Gut Üselitz?

It’s a remote and idyllic place. Each room has a stunning view of the landscape and surrounding water. The outside views are truly fascinating, which is why we kept the interior simple and modern, infused with individual antiques, old books and also small peculiarities. Although there are no televisions here, binoculars are in every room. The apartments are large and spacious, with a maximum sense of space.

To you personally, what is so special about Gut Üselitz?

Gut Üselitz turned out just as we had envisioned. Many of our ideas were turned into reality, and the estate now embodies everything we had hoped for. It’s a beautiful building with high ceilings, surrounded by incredible natural scenery that can be enjoyed from every level of the house.

On three sides we are surrounded by water, and the fields are visited by all kinds of birds. Geese, grey herons, great white egrets, ducks, and cranes all stop here to rest each spring and fall.

All of our apartments are self-catering and come with kitchens. In the future we want to offer bread service in the mornings, as well as grocery shopping for guests who would like a taste of our regional products, such as fresh milk, quark, and cream cheese from a local dairy.

Someone is always available to give recommendations on restaurants, activities and sightseeing spots on Rügen. Additionally, each apartment contains a brochure that is designed specifically for our guests. It includes useful tips about the area, as well as local activities and concerts in the nearby towns. Currently, our manor hosts four small events annually. Also every Monday during the summer, guests can enjoy small concerts held at a lovely old church in a nearby town.

The highlight of the islands are the chalk cliffs. For families with kids, I would recommend the rope course in Prora. Additionally, Prora is very interesting because of its architecture. In Binz you will find small, modern architectural works done in concrete by Ulrich Müther. In Garz, there are several small museums, such as the Ernst-Moritz-Arndt-Museum, which is the oldest museum on the island.

I can highly recommend the spring festival ‘Festspielfrühling’, which is 8 full days of concerts in various locations. This event happens every year in March or April, and again in September under the festival name ‘Festspielsommer’.

Natural beaches can be found nearby. Only 8 kilometres away, you can enjoy a refreshing swim in Streler Sund, or enjoy the wider sandy beaches located 25 kilometres from the estate.

The location of Gut Üselitz

Located in the south of the island of Rügen, Gut Üselitz is situated in what is called Üselitzer Wiek, which is part of the commune of Poseritz. It is very close to Streler Sund, and surrounded by delightful landscapes, which are sparsely populated. This is a very quiet and isolated part of the island. The surrounding area is dominated by agriculture. Trees line the roads, and nearby are wonderful restored water areas.

Even though our manor feels away from it all, we are only 15 kilometres from Stralsund. On the way to Gut Üselitz, our guests will travel on the old ‘spa route’ (Bäderstraße) towards the classicist city Putbus. Supermarkets and restaurants can be found nearby, 8 to 12 kilometres from the estate. You don’t need to go by car, as there are very good bike paths around.

The island has various topographies, so there is always something new to discover. In the south, nature should be your focus. Because of migration patterns, during the spring and fall the southern part of the island is under the reign of the animal world. There is no other place on the island of Rügen where you’ll find such untouched and idyllic nature.

When is the best time to visit Rügen?

Each season has its own charm. In winter, all the fields are bare and covered with white crystalline structures. The sunsets turn the water into a pink, violet, and orange surface. Of course we have under-floor heating, so you’ll feel warm and cosy in your apartment.

In spring, the cranes return and everything is in bloom, from the trees to the golden rapeseed fields. The summer brings long days and countless things to do. In fall, life slows down, the colours change, and birds can be seen traveling south, filling the sky with their voices.
