Entwicklungs-Compagnie Heiligendamm

As part of the JAGDFELD SEASIDE PROPERTIES, ECH has been significantly involved in the structural and economic development in and around Germany’s first seaside resort Heiligendamm since 1996. It was founded in 1996 for the reconstruction of the “White City by the Sea”. In the first step, from 2000 to 2003, the buildings of the Grand Hotel Heiligendamm were renovated, partly rebuilt and handed over to the hotel owner. The construction of the hotel ensemble was awarded the “Most Beautiful Hotel in the World” prize at the world’s largest real estate fair in Cannes, the MIPIM, in 2004.

In the years that followed, ECH realised many construction projects, always with the aim of restoring Heiligendamm to its former beauty, preserving its historical traditions and further developing the tourist infrastructure of the seaside resort with economic success. For example, in addition to providing technical and financial support for the improvement of the public infrastructure (road, cycle path and beach exit construction), ECH has built sports grounds (tennis, football), created additional parking facilities, redesigned the public spa forest, enabled the construction of a public circular path and engaged cooperation partners for sailing and kite sports in ECH buildings. ECH has also committed itself to the Grand Hotel Heiligendamm in a variety of ways and with large sums of money. Furthermore, ECH has been extensively involved in the preservation and support of the Doberaner Rennverein e.V. and has made it possible to hold racing days at the traditional racecourse.

With great effort, ECH is safeguarding the historic building fabric and, among other things, is renovating the buildings of the “Private Residences Heiligendamm” of the string of pearls with the most modern technology, but true to detail according to the historic model and in coordination with the monument protection authorities. Three months after the necessary building permit was granted, ECH started the reconstruction of the “Villa Grand Duchess Marie – Pearl”, located directly on the beach promenade, in summer 2010. In 2011, the renovation of the historic building Marien Cottage, which is one of the oldest buildings in the seaside resort, was completed. The neighbouring “Haus Krone” also shines in new splendour, and planning has already begun for the renovation of what many consider Heiligendamm’s most beautiful building, the “Alexandrinen Cottage”.

The Villa Perle is the first and largest lodging house of the Pearl Chain, which comprises a total of eight buildings and has been resplendent again since 2012. The house was built in 1854 (Pearl) and an extension was added in 1874 (Grand Duchess Marie). The occasion of the extension – the wedding of Grand Duke Vladimir of Russia to Maria Paulowna in Heiligendamm – illustrates the importance of the seaside resort as a significant meeting place of European nobility and society in the 19th century.

Since then, ECH has renovated and sold the neighbouring lodging houses “Villa Greif”, “Villa Möwe”, “Villa Seestern” and “Villa Schwan” true to the original and to the highest standard. The “Kolonnaden” are currently being given a new lease of life. The “Villa Klingler” will complete the ensemble as a new building. Condominiums are being built everywhere, leaving nothing to be desired.

The “White City by the Sea”. The enchanting ensemble of Grand Hotel, Kurhaus, Orangerie, Burg Hohenzollern, Haus Mecklenburg and Severin-Palais, which belong to the “Grand Hotel Heiligendamm”, as well as the lodging houses and colonnades, are being gently awakened from their slumber.

From 2000 to 2003, the buildings of the Grand Hotel Heiligendamm were renovated, partly rebuilt and handed over to the hotel owner.

In 2004, the Grand Hotel Heiligendamm was awarded the title “Most Beautiful Hotel in the World” at the MIPIM in Cannes.

The cultural heritage “Private Residences Heiligendamm”, eight 19th century lodging houses, are gradually being restored according to historical plans.

Venerable lodging houses by the sea with 150 years of European history. Each flat is unique with a view of the Baltic Sea.

Villa Klingler, part of the southern row of buildings in the ensemble of “Private Residences Heiligendamm”, is also committed to tradition. As a new building, it is oriented towards the historical language of form, yet the interior is equipped in a highly modern way.

Behind the villas Greif, Möwe and Seestern, the colonnades are being rebuilt in classical beauty parallel to the restoration of the “Private Residences Heiligendamm”.

In the Mecklenburg Bay of the Baltic Sea, southwest of Rerik, lies the 10 km2 peninsula of Wustrow. First mentioned in 1273, Wustrow was settled early on – and has experienced a chequered history up to the present day. The estate on the peninsula changed hands several times. Until the early 1930s, agricultural use predominated, followed by military use.

In 1933, the Wustrow peninsula was sold to the Reichswehr, which built Germany’s largest anti-aircraft artillery school there until 1939. A large military complex with all the associated facilities and a large residential area modelled on garden city architecture were built. Since 1949, the peninsula was used by the Red Army, which withdrew from there in October 1993.

In spring 1998, a company of the Jagdfeld Gruppe, the later ECW Entwicklungs-Compagnie Wustrow, acquired the Wustrow peninsula including the Wustrower Hals, which connects the peninsula with Rerik. The business basis for the acquisition of the peninsula from the assets of the federal government was the development possibilities presented in the sales brochure of TLG Treuhand Liegenschaftsgesellschaft mbH, which was commissioned with the sale, in the context of an urban development framework plan developed by TLG.

With its plans to revitalise the garden city as a residential and holiday address, ECW wants to tie in with Wustrow’s history and, together with the construction of another new garden city on the parts of the peninsula formerly used for military purposes, develop a liveable and attractive new district together with the town of Rerik.

After decades of military use, the ECW wants to make the peninsula usable again for peaceful purposes: For people who want to live there permanently or temporarily or spend their holidays. And this only on the area of the “Old Garden City” and “New Garden City” that is already built up today. That would be only about ten per cent of the peninsula, which covers about 1,000 hectares.

Since the approximately 550 residential units are designed to be small-scale and with lots of greenery, only about 50 hectares will actually be built on. The adjoining 200 hectares of landscape conservation area and 700 hectares of nature reserve will remain untouched.

The current planning foresees a small centre with restaurants, a café and smaller shops for the “Alte Gartenstadt”. The “New Garden City” is also to have a small centre with the creation of a central market place.

The development and construction of the Wustrow peninsula planned by the ECW Entwicklungs-Compagnie Wustrow will bring numerous advantages for the region and the country, and above all for Rerik and its citizens. During the construction phase alone, with a volume of about 500 million euros, many regional and local companies will benefit, which will need quite a few new employees for good money.

As a special sign of goodwill, ECW donated a plot of land on Wustrower Hals to the municipality of Rerik as early as November 1999 and left it further land there to be used free of charge. Today, the Haffplatz and its buildings are the tourist heart of the town on the donated land, and Rerik has since earned millions in income from the management of the adjacent areas as a public car park. The ECW has thus played a significant role in the positive development of the community.

To date, the peninsula has unfortunately still not been developed and built on. However, ECW is still looking ahead. After all, the urban development of the peninsula is about the preservation of an architectural heritage, the gentle and sustainable redevelopment of a forgotten gem with considerable benefits for the region and the country as well as especially for Rerik and all the citizens and their guests living there.

Further information:

The Wustrow peninsula has been owned by the JAGDFELD GRUPPE since 1998: 1,000 hectares, of which 200 hectares are landscape protection and 700 hectares are nature conservation areas.

Planned construction volume: 550 residential units and facilities with a total of 500 beds on 5% of the peninsula site.

Planning of a small centre with restaurants, a café and smaller shops.

An existing plan by renowned international architects envisages a small-scale development with lots of greenery.

The Ostsee Golf Resort Wittenbeck (OGRW) is located directly on the Baltic Sea between the traditional seaside resorts of Heiligendamm and Kühlungsborn. It is operated and managed by GHW.

The 18-hole championship course “Eikhof” with its extraordinary course architecture offers a great challenge for ambitious golfers. The 9-hole compact course “Höstingen”, on the other hand, is an ideal course for beginners without boring advanced players.

Both courses have in common that golf is played according to the highest ecological standards. The Ostsee Golf Resort Wittenbeck has been committed to active environmental protection and nature conservation for many years. This is just one of many examples: In the summer of 2022, the resort was awarded the “Gold” seal of the German Golf Association in the “Environment & Nature” category for the fifth time in a row. The OGRW was the first golf course in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern to receive the coveted award. Since then, only one course in MV has received it. And across Germany, only ten percent of all 732 golf courses meet this high standard.

The golf school offers beginner and advanced courses as well as taster sessions. In addition, the Ostsee Golf Resort has been very active in the area of children and young people for many years and also promotes golf as part of school sports. Whether you are a golfer or not: the restaurant “Bistro Eikhof”, which is harmoniously embedded in the landscape, offers its guests a wide variety of food and drinks – both for the small appetite and as an exquisite menu including a matching wine list.
