Hardenberg is home to the legendary spirits with the boar head. Our corn distillery “Gräflich von Hardenberg’sche Kornbrennerei”, where the noble spirits are distilled to this day, is located here. But the corn distillery is just one of many attractions pooled under the umbrella brand “Gräflicher Landsitz Hardenberg“ in the so-called “Hardenberg KeilerLand (boar land)”.
The animating spirit behind the overall concept is Carl Graf von Hardenberg, who manages the enterprise in the ninth generation. His mission is to link a tradition of more than 300 years to a sustainable vision of the future. The aim of the dynamic entrepreneur is to continuously develop new ideas for Hardenberg’s future as a destination for guests and visitors.
Many attractions draw visitors to Hardenberg KeilerLand all year round. They include the historical castle ruins of Hardenberg, the Gräflich von Hardenberg’sche Kornbrennerei, Hardenberg KeilerSchänke, Hardenberg KeilerLaden, Hardenberg SchlossPark, an ice rink during wintertime and numerous events throughout the year.
