House

The house

The loft apartment is located in a historic old house in the small town of Kyritz, also known as “Kyritz an der Knatter”, in Brandenburg. Kyritz is located north from Berlin and is either 90 min by train or 1 1/2 hours by car away from Berlin.
The house was built in 1912 by the commercial and agricultural bank and is located directly at the town square of Kyritz with a view towards the beautiful 200-year-old oak tree and the charming old Kyritz town hall.

We have made it our mission to renovate this special house carefully and with fine sense. We are very proud of our first holiday apartment in the house and look forward to welcoming our guests here in person.

You enter the holiday apartment through the old staircase, which was renovated between 2023 and 2024 and returned to its original color design with the help of a restorer. The beautiful blue wall tiles, the stair railing, as well as the vestibule with its high, elegant wooden railing and the old oak entrance doors are true to the original and were fortunately able to be preserved over all these years.
A special piece of beauty are the original, elaborately crafted and designed Art Nouveau glass windows in the stairwell.
On the ground floor we have a bicycle room where our guests can use 4 high-quality bicycles to go to the nearby lake or to explore the surrounding area.

The 200 year old oak tree

To mark the victory over Napoleon four oak trees were planted in 1814. Only one of them survived the city fires and stands in the center of the market square as the “peace oak” today. The oak tree, which is over 200 years old, has a calming and powerful presence and you have a beautiful view towards the oak tree from every window of the loft apartment. A few benches under the oak tree invite you to enjoy an ice cream from the nearby ice cream café, especially in summer.

Kyritz

Kyritz is a charming and quiet town, with many beautiful old houses. Opposite to St. Oak you can see the striking historic red brick town hall. During the day you can enjoy the tranquil small town life and in the evening it is particularly quiet. During hot days, you can buy a few scoops of ice cream at the market square and enjoy it under the cooling shade of the oak tree. A local weekly market takes place on the market square on Tuesdays and Fridays. There is a small organic food store within walking distance and of course all the large supermarkets are also represented in Kyritz.
By bike you can reach the lake in 15 minutes. Here you can rent pedal boats and rowing boats or simply look for a nice, quiet place and take a swim.

The renovation and plans for the future

For the future, we plan to open another holiday apartment in winter 2024 and two more holiday apartments will be renovated in 2025. The remodeling of the charming little backyard is also very important to us – for the summer of 2025 we have planned to have a cozy little wooden pavilion with the look of a greenhouse, as well as an outdoor kitchen and several tables so that our guests can enjoy their breakfast or dinner outdoors and meet each other in the backyard garden of St. Oak.
