In the middle of the Lewitz, a hunting lodge was built in the style of a log cabin in 1705 by order of Duke Friedrich Wilhelm. In 1791, Duke Friedrich Franz I had it replaced by a three-wing half-timbered building based on a design by Johann Heinrich von Seydewitz. Today, nothing remains of the avenues that once extended radially from the Jagdschloss. The connection to the then royal palace of Ludwigslust can still be seen and is passable by car in parts. Many public figures have visited the Jagdschloss. These include Kaiser Wilhelm I and Wilhelm II as well as Chancellor Otto von Bismarck.
