Welcome to Gut Basthorst

Welcome to Gut Basthorst, where you can spend a day like no other. Ideally located close to the city of Hamburg, Gut Basthorst is an agricultural estate and historical landmark that can trace its roots back to the 13th century. It has been in family ownership for more than 400 years.

Today, Gut Basthorst is an internationally renowned location.

Gut Basthorst also offers over 30 buildings for weddings, corporate retreats, concerts, sport events or any gathering.

You may also want to enjoy fresh regional dishes in our family-owned restaurant “Zum Pferdestall” or spend a night in one of our individually decorated hotel rooms on the premises.
