Gut Mittelstetten
Gut Mittelstetten

Mittelstetten is about 1.5 kilometers south of Erpfting located Good that the city Landsberg am Lech is heard and since August 2007 also owned by the town of Landsberg.

Gut Mittelstetten lies directly at the foot of the wooded upper Lechleite . The estate includes a manor house built in 1826 with the character of a castle and a three-winged farmyard.


The agricultural estate today includes a number of outbuildings, around 100 hectares of arable land and grassland as well as around 40 hectares of forest and 30 hectares of other areas between Erpfting and Ellighofen . This includes a schnapps distillery with associated rights, water rights on the Wiesbach and hunting rights in the forest belonging to the estate.

There is a striking chimney for the schnapps distillery, and there are also a number of commercial and residential buildings around the estate. To the west of the property there are two artificial ponds, which are supplied by springs in the slopes of the Lechleite and served as a reservoir for the operation of the mill and sawmill. In place of an earlier oil mill, a sawmill was built, which was in operation until the late 1960s.

To the west of Gut Mittelstetten are the remains of a turbine system on the Wiesbach, which probably also belonged to the estate.

The manor is a three-storey hipped roof building , which was built around 1826 instead of a presumably smaller predecessor building. In 1939 farm workers' apartments were set up in the house. In 1957 another workers' apartment building was built south of the house.


Mittelstetten is first mentioned in 1242, when Konrad von Lechsberg and his goods were made lendable to the Irsee Monastery. In 1532 it was converted into property, the names of the owners since 1596 are known. The name Mittelstetten is likely to be derived from the location of the property between the towns of Ellighofen and Erpfting .

Acquisition by the city of Landsberg

Until August 2007, the property was rented in a state in need of renovation and was then sold for around four million euros to the city of Landsberg, which, with the acquisition of the property, provided compensation areas for the Frauenwald industrial area, which was designated in 2006 , and subsequently large parts of the previous arable land was reforested with deciduous forest.
