History of Granitz Hunting Lodge
The lodge was built between 1837 and 1851 to the orders of Wilhelm Malte I, Duke of Putbus, and was constructed by builder Johann Gottfried Mayer Stein from Berlin.
The castle was first opened to the public in 1900 by the family and is today one of the biggest tourist attractions in Rügen.
It is definitely the most popular castle in the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
Inside the castle there is lots to see including preserved interiors from the 19th century and a collection of horns from animals around the world.
