Hunting Chateau Granitz

A jewel in the middle of Biosphere Reserve

A grandiose hunting palace built in 1723 on top of the 107m-high Tempelberg was significantly enlarged and altered by Wilhelm Malte I in 1837. It still houses an impressive collection of trophies and prestigious salons. The main attraction is the spiral staircase in the middle tower made out of cast iron. With 154 steps it leads up to the 38 m high tower. The viewing platform offers a picturesque panoramic view over the island.


After wandering through the chateau, you can enjoy refreshments in its historic cellar vault or in the forest beer garden.
