Welcome to the future of hospitality

In the midst of fascinating nature of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve River Landscape Elbe Brandenburg lies our listed castle, framed by an over 5 hectare certified organic castle garden, directly on the river Löcknitz.

The ahead burghotel in Lenzen/Elbe is your vegan and consistently sustainable hideaway with the purely plant-based restaurant place to V, a large sun terrace and the breakfast winter garden with a view into the castle garden. The floor-heated tea house in the middle of the greenery offers you a retreat for meditation and yoga. Or can you be more active? Bamboo bikes, hiking, swimming, fitness, stand up paddling & canoes are waiting for you!

We want to be a pioneer of one of the most sustainable hotels: fair, ecological and mindful. For a better world, in harmony with nature, people and animals.



You can choose between rooms in the castle itself or in the historic castle school, some with a view of the castle. Our rooms are equipped with ecological furniture - in each room you will find your own yoga mat. Would you like it to be a bit more spacious? Then take a look at our deluxe rooms and the ahead juniorsuite.

Vegan Travel Award 2022

In our opinion, climate and environmental protection are no longer nice-to-haves. We are all challenged to solve the climate crisis. Instead of greenwashing, you can experience with us how active climate, animal and environmental protection can be implemented in a hotel. Out of conviction, we are not only purely plant-based, but also compensate for the currently unavoidable emissions.
