This turn-of-the-century barn in Germany’s rural Uckermark region wears its history proudly.

Built in 1900, the property was disused for almost two decades before Berlin-based architect Thomas Kröger renovated the structure. He retained its original stone and brick façade as well as the interior wooden beams.

The building garnered so much attention upon the refurbishment’s completion that the main section of the property is booked for the foreseeable future. But the guest house in the barn’s western corner, accommodating four people, is available.


It has its own private garden, accessible from the kitchen, and comes with two double bedrooms. While the wooden interior frame of the guest house remains, Kröger updated the space with more contemporary touches, including Moorish-inspired patterned tiles in the bathroom and sleek Modernist furniture throughout.

An hour’s drive from Berlin, the Rote Scheune guest house is available to rent via the property’s website.
