Satow — Gut Hohen Luckow Steals The Show

You’d think at this point it would be pretty mundane writing about every possible town in Germany. I’m here to tell you, no stinkin’ way. Each place has something unique — and something that’ll stick with you in your mind about each and every place.

Here in the town of Satow, it was an old manor house.

The right thing to say would be this stunning ocher-colored mansion, whose Great Hall is gaily decorated with gold and white, as well as having this huge chandelier and gigantic fireplace. Its Red Salon is full of paintings, and is downright homey in this opulent abode.

Hard as it is to pull yourself away from the beauty of Gut Hohen Luckow, the town has some other great places that are most definitely worth visiting. If you want to keep with the whole “Guthaus” theme, then the old manor house in the village of Gerdshagen is a good start. Its history goes back to around 1224 A.D., and the landscape surrounding the old mansion has cute worker’s cottages — and this romantic looking stone bridge.

The other “must do, no matter what” would be seeing Satow’s village churches. You can choose which one you like the most, but for me it’s the one in the village of Heiligenhagen — because of its stone and wood construction with this unique conical tower, and its peaceful graveyard. I love it even more knowing the church was built some 700 years ago, making it one of the oldest places in town.

Right down from Heiligenhagen’s village church is Satow’s World War I Memorial, if you wanna stop.

There might not be time with all the town’s festivals and what-not. This is a place where Easter bonfires take place, as well as community Flea Markets, and they host a cute Christmas Market every December; a Trüffelfest in October; a Dorffest (Village Festival) in September; two Summer Festivals in June, and a Waldfest (Forest Festival) in May.

Some of you might remember Satow for all these lively events — but I’ll still stick with that stunning manor house, Gut Hohen Luckow, if you don’t mind. ;-)
