The August 2015 Hideaway Report features Andrew Harper's journeys through former East Germany to dynamic Berlin, graceful Dresden and the idyllic countryside of Mecklenburg. In this issue, Mr. Harper adds two new hotels to the Harper Collection: a countryside hideaway set within romantic forested grounds and a stately, discreet city hotel in Berlin. Explore these two newly recommended Harper destinations listed below.
This family-owned manor house dates to the early 19th century and lies amid 400 acres of parkland, pasture and forest 120 miles north of Berlin. Twenty guest rooms feature custom silk-upholstered furniture, Biedermeier antiques, wood parquet floors and embroidered bed covers.
Tucked away on a quiet lane in western Berlin, this chic 78-room hotel set within a limestone structure was formerly the Royal Danish Embassy. With interiors by Milan-based designer Patricia Urquiola, accommodations are divided between a modern annex and the original building adorned with period furnishings.
