Manowce Palace History
Manowce Palace is a historic property located in a unique position in north-western Poland, surrounded by vast forests, far from residential areas and located right on the shore of a large bay on the Baltic Sea.
The palace has the ideal mix of old and new, full of beautiful antiques and paintings, but with modern touches such as Wi-Fi access, fully equipped bathrooms and extremely comfortable beds. We host weddings, private parties and corporate meetings. When you book an event in Manowce, you have all the space for yourself: three apartments, thirteen bedrooms, five reception rooms, special rooms for business meetings and lovely gardens where they can accommodate up to one hundred people in a tent.
The Manowce palace in Trzebieradz (known as Haffhorst before 1945) was built in the early 20th century in a neoclassical style and was most likely designed by Theodor Bless. The investor and first owner was Georg Wegner, medical director and director of the Szczecin Pomorzany hospital (Pommerensdorf).
In 1923 the property was purchased by Eduard Silbernagel, who then sold it in 1941 to the Nazi Popular Wellness Organization - Nationalsozialistische Volkswohlfahrt (NSV). The NSV used the palace for Gauschule (training school for members of the Nazi party) and the remaining buildings for Mutterheim (refuge for single mothers). The property was not damaged during the Second World War. Towards the end of April 1945, it was occupied by the Soviet army which set up a border guard army station there. From the late 1940s to the early 1990s the palace was used for recreational purposes and later as a summer camp for Warsaw government administrators. In the 1990s, the property was purchased by a private investor, who began renovating the remaining building and buildings, but then abandoned this investment. A few years ago the palace and park were acquired by a new owner, who recently restored them to their former glory.

We can host wedding parties of up to 50 people in our beautiful home, or larger parties of up to 100 people in a marquee in the gardens. For indoor parties, we can offer a separate room for dancing.

Manowce is one of the very few five-star resorts in this part of Europe where you can rent the property for exclusive use on vacation, just for you or with your friends. Exclusive means that there will be no other guests during your stay (however, part of the villa is a private house).
