A Place To Reconnect

Das Blaue Pferd, or “The Blue Horse” is a reminder that a property in any form can be, and often is, an expression of one’s ideals. This is what we like about this enchanting vacation home rental in Germany, owned by Berlin-based artist Elisophie Eulenburg, restored and repurposed into a haven for rest, discovery, resourcing, and sharing. 

The idea behind Das Blaue Pferd speaks towards Elisophie’s apparent philosophy of interaction and connection: to combine urban culture with the merits of the countryside, and to support an exchange between the city and its surroundings. 

Sustainability is important to Elisophie, so the farmstead has been furnished with restored, repaired, or upcycled household objects found in attics and cellars. She also designed and made her own furniture on-site: whimsical pieces that combine clean cuts of wood with whittled branches, modern with rustic, and pops of paint against natural finishes.

There is a utopian feel to this venue of artistic expression and recreation. The cavernous barn is now a space for rehearsals, workshops, cinema, music, dance, or theatre. Attics have been turned into studios, and there are quiet rooms for writing. 

Their artist-in-residence program has already hosted an array of talent. The comings and goings of artists at Das Blaue Pferd has enriched the cultural life of this sparsely populated lake district with exhibitions and a variety of events. Income from vacation rentals is used to promote cultural events and residences on the farm.

Das Blaue Pferd is a place to find creativity, community, and to experience somebody’s own little slice of perfect. Come here to reconnect rather than disconnect.

Description

Arranged around a central courtyard much like a monastery garden or village square, this vacation home rental in Germany is a thoughtfully repurposed farmstead designed as both a holiday destination and a venue for cultural activities, work and artist in residency programs.

A heritage listed site, the property is comprised of four separate farm buildings that form an ensemble of individual dwellings. Carefully renovated with respect for its history while remaining stylistically rustic, the property was also designed to promote the interchange between rural and urban life.

There are a total of ten places you can stay: One building includes one double and one single room with a bathroom and private kitchen, as well as a separate apartment with four bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, and a living and dining area.

The spaces are furnished and equipped with sustainable, upcycled, restored and repurposed furnishings and art designed by the owner. The large former barn has been transformed into an event venue, while the former coach house is is a work space and office.

The organic gardens boast a variety of delicious fruits, vegetables and herbs for guests to enjoy.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, kitchen and bath amenities, the house is wood fire oven heated (bring your wool socks and sweaters!) with firewood provided.

AROUND

Located on the edge of the Schorfheide Biosphere Reserve (one of the largest forest areas in Germany) and next to the hilly landscape of Lakes Nature Park in North Brandenburg, the area is part of an ancient glacial landscape with crystal clear lakes and sprawling forests and meadows populated by abundant wildlife.

The nearby village of Zehdenick situated on the Havel river is within a few kilometers, where you’ll find shops and restaurants and places to rent bikes and boats to tour the area. The area is populated with many old villages and historic hunting lodges tucked away in the woods.

Head out for a swim in one of the many lakes in the area, grab a bike and cycle the Berlin-Copenhagen bike path, or relax and explore some of the most picturesque natural areas of Brandenburg. Fürstenberg/Havel is thirty minutes north and Berlin is an hour south.

LOCATION

Zehdenick, Germany. Nearest Airport: Berlin Tegel Airport (62km)

BEST TIME TO VISIT: Spring through Fall when the weather is mild but the space is available for workshops, meetings and cultural events throughout the year.
