Kamieniec Palace was built at the end of the 18th century by Count von Hartig. In the 19th century, it passed through the hands of the von Mutius family and pastor Karl Eduard Grandke, from whom his wife, Constance Luisa von Mobius, inherited it. The Counts von Ohlen und Adlerskron were the next owners.
The estate in Kamieniec flourished under the von Seherr-Thoss family, thanks to Arthur von Seherr-Thoss. Two years after he bought the Palace, he had it rebuilt and updated to reflect the times. The Baroque palace was later expanded by adding a north wing, and a sandstone portal was installed in the entrance.
The Kamieniec estate expanded rapidly during the first half of the 20th century. As time went on, the Baroque garden was transformed into a landscape garden, and a tearoom has been built on its edge. The manor grew its own fruit and cereal crops, which were sold in the surrounding towns and spas.
The years following World War II were the most devastating for Kamieniec. Rather than updating or renovating the palace and farm buildings, they were converted into dwellings and a store for fertiliser was set up there. The last residents left in 2004 and the palace was vandalised and looted.
Kamieniec was acquired by its current owners in 2009. Following extensive planning by experts, the renovations got underway. Both the interior and exterior have been brought back to their former glory, with the historic garden being recreated and then expanded to encompass the southern and northern sections of the farmhouse courtyard.
