General Information

Trebnitz, situated approximately 60km from Berlin in the eastern part of Brandenburg, looks back over a 780-year history. In its early days, there was an endowment of land from Henry I the Bearded to the Silesean Cistercian monastery in Trebnitz in 1244. The first documented reference to Trebnitz goes back to the year 1244.


Over the course of the century, Trebnitz experienced an eventful history. Pillaging by the Hussites in 1432 and imperial troops during the 30 Years War damaged the place repeatedly but always found its way back to life. It is located in the natural Trebnitz Estate Park which extends over some 65 acres and can be traced back to plant lover Georg Friedrich von Ziethen, who was the lord of the manor in Trebnitz from 1707.
