Wartin Manor is located about 100 km north of Berlin and 35 km southwest of Sczcecin, in the enchanting landscape of the Uckermark, also known as the ‘Tuscany of the North’, a mixture of grass-covered hills, lakes, woods, and river valleys. The beautifully restored manor house is embedded in a peaceful and variegated park and gardens, making it the perfect place for a symposium on botany and landscape ecology. Wartin Manor is a regional cultural centre, an international congress venue, and the seat of both the European Academy and the Foundation Collegium Wartinum.
