The BOUTIQUE & ART HOTEL LENZ is located on a historical ground, sparsely populated and once the scene of disputes between the Margravian nobility on the one hand and the ecclesiastical nobility of Western Pomerania on the other.
As a result of customs and trade disputes, which can be traced back to the 16th century, a castle was built in the immediate vicinity for “protection and protection”, of which unfortunately nothing exists today. Only incisions in the landscape, however, still give a hint of them.
From the middle of the 19th century the tourist development of this scenic area began.
Today’s hotel complex goes back in the near past to a leisure facility of the VEB Schwermaschinenkombinat Ernst Thälmann Magdeburg, abbreviated SKET (formerly Friedrich Krupp AG) and was built in the years 1963-1965. Until 1989, our site was more or less used for recreation of employees of this company.
With the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1990, the property was liquidated by the Treuhandanstalt and led a rather bleak existence until about 5 years ago.
In 2016, it was brought back to life while largely preserving its old fabric – with a lot of effort and financial commitment – and opened in early 2019 as the “Boutique Hotel Lenz”.
