Königs Wusterhausen Palace

Autumn residence of King Frederick William I.

In Königs Wusterhausen, southeast of Berlin and easy to reach by S-Bahn or regional train, lies the castle of the same name. It is primarily associated with the Prussian King Frederick William I (1688-1740), who spent his youth there. The addition "Königs" (King), which the town of Wusterhausen received in 1717 in his honor, goes back to him. Frederick William I appreciated the castle, which was kept simple compared to Potsdam, and used it as an autumn residence and hunting lodge.

In the exhibition you will get an insight into the Prussian way of life in the 18th century. In the banqueting hall, 40 pictures painted by the king himself are on display. The adjacent baroque palace garden was laid out by the king's mother Sophie Charlotte and invites you to linger.
