Stadtgut Mölkau is idyllically located on the rural edge of Leipzig, which offers a very special wedding ambience. It was first mentioned in the 14th century that there is a landscaped park where Robert and Clara Schuhmann spent the afternoon of their wedding.
Festival room in the former stables
A special atmosphere for a special feast – with a lot of love to detail, we have transformed the former stables into a festival room. From extraordinary conferences up to an enchanting dance hall along with bar and lounge, there are many possible ways to design the former stables.
Fireplace House in the ‘Ököstation’
This is the place when looking for seclusion. The Fireplace House is suitable for almost every event. 60 people can celebrate at round tables, 80 people fit on long tables and conferences with row seating are possible for up to 120 people. Whether a rustic facility or a festive decorated room is wished, everything is possible. On cold days, cozy outdoor places and a heated fireplace provide a comfy atmosphere. Thanks to the new and modern kitchen, it is now possible to provide oneself with food or even cook together.
The estate was first mentioned in 1335 and has evolved over several centuries from Lehnhof to representative property. From 1730 to 1760 the stately grove was turned into a park in the style of an English garden under the estate ownership by Dr. Thomas Wagner. After the Battle of Nations in 1813, the demolitions required in estate numerous new buildings and altered arrangement of buildings. In 1854, the Leipzig merchant, Friedrich Wilhelm Kelbe, bought the estate replacing many of the ruinous barns with massive stone structures. 1869 the manor house was built. The estate remained to the family Seeger-Kelbe until 1945, who also had their residence here. 1945 the entire property was expropriated without compensation. For a short time the manor house served as accommodation for evacuees. Thereafter it was used as a school and after 1968 as a training center for educators. After the German reunification, the estate was transferred back to the city of Leipzig and extensively renovated. The aim was the establishment of an ecological ‘Stadtgut’. After the refurbishment, the former manor house Zweinaundorf has become a good address. 2002 the ‘Stadtgut’ was privatized and since then it has been owned by the Stadtgut Mölkau GmbH.
The old park invites you to linger. In the second half of the 18th century it was established as an English garden and after 1854 it was remodeled in a landscape park. With its oaks, lindens, oak pyramids, black poplars and sycamores the park became a soul-stirring natural monument. The famous musician pair Robert Schumann and Clara Wieck spent the afternoon after their ceremony on the 12th September 1840 in this idyllic setting. The park is a nature reserve and is a protected landscape since 1956. The establishment of the ecological ‘Stadtgut’ and the landscape conservation supervision by the City of Leipzig enabled the further development of the park into a recreation area of high value.
The Mölkau estate farmed 150 hectares of organic farming. This includes the cash crop cultivation and management of meadows and pastures. A special feature of the property is the large domestic animal park, with all animals which a farm can offer – pigs, cattle, sheep, donkeys, horses, chicken, ducks, geese, rabbits and guinea pigs. Particularly interesting are endangered breeds of domestic animals that are bred at the Mölkau estate and are obtained there, such as the German saddle pig, the ‘Vogtländisches Rotvieh’ or the Catalan great donkey. Again and again offspring fascinate all visitors. So close to the city and yet on the farm – a piece of nature to look at and to become acquainted with. A special highlight for city kids!
