Bärentouren: The Berlin Castle and its Periphery

Castletour about history, excavations and reconstruction

The Berlin castle tour takes the interested visitor back to the time of the monarchs and the old court life in the "Royal Area" in the castle between the cathedral, the castle garden, the stables, the armoury, the princess palace and the private residence of Emperor Wilhelm I Unter den Linden.

Address

Granitschale vor dem Alten Museum

Am Lustgarten 1 10178  Berlin


Furthermore, the historical significance of the palace building from 1443 for the design of the city is illuminated, because without the palace Cölln and Berlin would probably not have become a capital. In addition to the architecture and the most famous master builders from Schinkel to Schlüter, the life of the most important Brandenburg chieftains, Prussian kings and German emperors from Friedrich Eisenzahn to Kaiser Wilhelm II is also discussed.

With anecdotes about body doctors, court astrologers and alchemists from the history of the palace, the tour is brought to life, and the legends about the Iron Virgin in the Green Hat, the Prison Tower and the White Lady in the Castle Ghost also add something gruesome to the tour.

(This tour is only Gerrnan guided)
