For the love of historic real
estates, I´ve bought several years ago this decay-threatening
manor house and since then I´m investing every penny in this
It is a building with a soul and a centuries-old history, which
if no one had taken care of it, was threatened with ruin, or
even demolition and falling appart. That would be a true loss,
because the memories of many families and entire generations are
My goal is besides the protection, the revival and preservation
of this historic robust building, which has already survived two
world wars and has become part of the German history; to create
an art project out of it, as a positive example for the
generations to come.
Many of the locals associate memories of their childhood, youth
or even stories of their parents, grandparents, ancestors, ...
who once inhabited, farmed or worked in this or on this
The building fabric of this historic building and the materials
used are robust and tedious, such as massive natural stones,
sandstones, huge logs for the roof construction and clay
plaster! One part of the building was built in 1700, the other
in 1900 and is in no way comparable to a new building of our
fast-moving, throwaway society and the comparatively inferior
building materials used.
My wish would be the repair, renovation, restoration,
construction, planting, as well as the salvation of this
This will also help to revitalize and create regional jobs for
old craft trades such as smaller construction & craft companies,
long-term unemployed and resin IV recipients, especially in this

needleworks, gardening, ... but often don´t find any regional
job opportunityes to provide themselves and their families.

With the revenue generated, more historical buildings could be
purchased and rescued from falling apart and saved from decay
and demolition! This contributes to the beautification of the
cityscape in the individual towns in which these buildings are
located and attraction of regional as well as nationwide tenants
or prospective buyers.
Promotion of tourism within Germany to attract foreign as well
as domestic tourists, especially in the beautiful, mostly still
relatively unknown, rural and natural areas and small villages
in Germany, where culture and traditions are still alive and
well and where holidays still cost relatively little.
For example for vacationers, stressed or overworked city people
seeking peace and relaxation as a balance to the stressful work
routine, retirees or families who want to experience life in a
healthy, clean environment of a small rural natural paradise and
let their children grow up healthy and organic.
Merging of already existing and new!
For the implementation of
these projects larger financial resources are required, for
example for the rescue of buildings threatened by decay with
great potential for revival for use and conservation; the
renovation, restoration and construction; the required
governmental approvals and reuse permits; Building materials,
construction machinery and tools; soil and crops for the
planting of land; architects, structural engineers, construction
companies, craftsmen, construction workers, auxiliary workers,
gardeners, ...; Building insurances and other required

set goals, every euro counts that can be earned or saved!
In order to achieve greatness for the benefit of all, we have to
start very small on our own, with the highest discipline and
