In 1874, Krongut Bornstedt, the royal estate, was constructed as part of the Sanssouci ensemble of castles and gardens. In the summer of 2002, the royal estate was reopened as a tourist attraction. In the former manor house, which also houses a registry office, you can get an insight into royal life in the middle of the 19th century. In the outbuildings and barns that now have a varied use, the visitor is offered plenty of facilities from a restaurant to a farm shop, a glassworks, a flower shop and to a baker’s. There is a wine bar in the former barn by the shore of the Bornstedter See (a lake). Several events take place in the extensive market square every week, which round off a visit to the Bornstedt Royal Estate.
