The castle park, which covers approx. 75 hectares, was laid out around the 18th century according to the French model and redesigned under Prince Wilhelm Malte zu Putbus from 1804 into an English landscape park with ponds, hills, distant views, a game reserve and special trees that can be discovered on a tour .
The park is home to cultural institutions and historical buildings of the city of Putbus, such as the stables, the orangery, the castle church, the former monkey house, the old smithy and the castle terraces.
You can view the current NDR Nordtour travel report as a guided tour through the city and park. Exclusive Masonic tours or guided tours through the magic of the city and park on request HERE.
You will also find the one-storey bakery at the Marstall, which has been preserved as a remnant of the old Putbus estate. In 1836 it was converted into a forester’s lodge; later it was inhabited by the princely Rendant (accountant).
Also worth seeing is the Bismarckstein behind the Rosencafé, a monolith with a golden inscription, erected in 1901 by Prince Wilhelm zu Putbus as a memorial to the time of the unification of the German Empire in 1871. Today’s inscription was restored by donations in 2001.
In the middle of the park on the open lawn on the castle terraces you will find the monument to Prince Wilhelm Malte, which was donated to him by his wife, Princess Luise. The four sides of the monument are lined with marble plaques depicting important milestones in the prince’s works.
Gastronomic facilities are the rose café, the stables and today’s doll museum in the former monkey house.
