Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania: Marstall renovated: Forestry office responsible for oaks now tenants

The Ivenacker oaks are around 1000 years old and have "seen" a lot. Now the foresters who are responsible for the giants come a little closer again. They moved to the Marstall in Ivenack.

Ivenack (dpa/mv) - The village of Ivenack (Mecklenburg Lake District), known for its "thousand-year-old oaks", has another tourist attraction. After years of renovation, the Marstall, which is part of the castle ensemble there, was ceremoniously handed over to its first users on Wednesday. It is the Stavenhagen forestry office that is also responsible for the zoo and the Ivenacker oaks, as State Minister of Agriculture Till Backhaus (SPD) announced.

According to the ministry, around 2.5 million euros went into the renovation of the Marstall. The country rents the part that the forest service needs from the municipality as owner for ten years. Up to now, the office has been located in much too small rooms in Gielow.

Like the stables, the castle in Ivenack was built on the site of a former 13th-century Cistercian monastery. The representative castle was empty for a long time, but is now being extensively renovated and is considered a monument of national importance.

According to experts, the Ivenacker oaks are between 800 and 1050 years old, making them the oldest English oaks in Europe. Around 110,000 visitors come every year. The ancient oaks stand in a 164-hectare forest area, which includes a 75-hectare zoo with fallow deer, wild horses and moufflons and a 620-metre-long treetop path.
