Jagdschloss Granitz, Ostseebad Binz

4.3
#1 of 8 in Historic Sites in Rugen Island
Once a popular holiday destination for European nobility, Jagdschloss Granitz was commissioned by the Prince of Putbus and built between 1838 and 1846. The castle remained in the hands of the Putbus family until the 1940s, when the Nazis seized it. The structure now functions as a museum operated by the state. Walk through the many rooms to learn about the history of the castle and to see the collection of old hunting rifles and furnishings from the 19th century. Head up the cantilevered cast-iron staircase of the main tower for sprawling views in all directions.

  • We were in the snowy March there, the trip and the short hike from the parking area were very nice. We were surprised how good the hunting Castle is preserved.

  • A beautifully crafted tour in a castle, which is located in an excellent condition. The climb to the tower is the highlight! Conclusion: with the walk from the parking lot a super destination.

  • Even without a ride after a beautiful winter forest walk, we visited the castle in a dedicated guide through the hunting Castle. So a guide tells you thanks to plastic declarations and by the emphasis which considerably more than on the sole tour. The tower with stairs on the wall long leads to a splendid panoramic view. The gastronomy in the basement was good.

  • Awesome place. Take the Jagdschlossexpress
  • Nice castle different of classic castles. Very small and at the top of a hill in the middle of a nice forest.
  • Nice to see if you are in the region. Tower offers nice view over the whole island
  • Good location, food, exhibition. Altogether more than OK for a not very long visit.
  • Great views and very interesting museum. You can even explore the upper levels of the castle
