Well, they are! Latest when you present them a unique camp experience with us at Schloss Leizen.
We are very happy that we finished the process for our organic (BIO) certification! We’ve cooked bio before, but are entitled to refer to it as BIO now!
Which is why we serve healthy and balanced diets to our young guests at Schloss Leizen. Last week we went a level higher and finally got our official certification as an ORGANIC FOOD provider. We can now openly announce that almost all of our suppliers are organic certified (mostly German regional) companies. The two major exceptions are our long-term local partners that deliver excellent quality milk Van der Ham (from the nearby village Bollewick) and fish Die Müritzfischer (from Waren an der Müritz).
Another key element of every breakfast is carbohydrates. Healthy carbs at breakfast give your body an energy boost, which it needs for the day. Here, at Schloss Leizen, you won’t get your carbs through the usual bread or muesli…
Your body needs a lot of important nutrients to stay fit and energized throughout the day, for example, vitamins. These can be either water-soluble or fat-soluble:
🌱 Water-soluble vitamins include vitamins C and B. Your body needs vitamin B for a proper exchange of nutrients in the cells (metabolism). Vitamin C blocks dangerous molecules (catches free radicals), which helps the immune system.
🌱 Fat-soluble vitamins include vitamin A, D, E and K. These are important for building new cells in the body.
We always make sure that children get their portion of vitamins with each and every freshly cooked meal we serve, especially at breakfast. Check out the pictures below!
Good mood can set the tone for the rest of the day. This is why we value the family atmosphere at our Schloss Leizen breakfasts so highly. We get to enjoy the first sunlight together, joke around, help each other wake up still sleepy kids and discuss our plans for the new day. And all that – as a big family, with the young and the old at one table.
Schloss Leizen is setting a new trend by improving what others may already do well. Our aim is to make a long-lasting contribution to your child’s intellectual, emotional and physical development. In this post you will discover why you should choose Schloss Leizen for your kids.

As well as organising activities and tours in the region, Schloss Leizen places huge value on exploring this pearl of a landscape.
Allergy safe bedcovers, high-quality damask bedclothes and cotton towels. Beautiful wooden floors covered with special natural oil and slip-free bathroom tiles to ensure that no one gets hurt.

Have you ever had the feeling you or your child spend too much time indoors and don’t go outside to play, exercise or socialize? Well, here at Schloss Leizen we try to avoid exactly that. As well as preparing the healthy meals you already know about, staff at Schloss Leizen invites your kids to play outside, exercise during training sessions and socialize during group excursions and other team activities. However, we do not force anybody to take part in all our activities (although most kids like what we do once they tried it out).
Have you experienced educators that truly care for your children? E.g. your child’s most favorite schoolteacher? Well, if you haven’t or if you want to experience it again, Schloss Leizen is the best place for your kids to go. When at Schloss Leizen, our trained staff is always available and helpful. See for yourself…
To be continued…
Very Well is the answer!!!
Especially if you have two hours of intense excercise and football, followed by a delicious warm lunch – the kids couldn’t be happier to join Chef Maik to bake their own pastry for tea time.
Of course with apples !!!
🍕 Dissolve 1 tsp organic cane sugar in 240 ml lukewarm water.
🍕 Add 42 g of yeast, 500 g organic spelt flour, 1 pinch of salt and 80 ml of vegetable oil (we used safflower seed oil).
🍕 Mix everything thoroughly and knead until dough is smooth and elastic. It will make pizza airy and light.
🍕 Let the dough rise for 1 hour.
🍕 On a floured surface, roll out the dough and let it rest for another 20 minutes.
🍕 Add the toppings of your choice. For extra sweet pizza: slather the top of the pizza with jam or sour cream and add your favorite fruits (we used apples, of course J).
🍕 You can also sprinkle the flaked/sliced almonds, cane sugar or cinnamon over the top.
🍕 Bake at 200 ° C (fan oven) for about 15 minutes (depending on the size of the pizza and the thickness of the topping).
