Rheinsberg Castle, picturesquely situated on Lake Grienericksee, allows us to immerse ourselves in the 18th century. Crown Prince Friedrich, later King Friedrich II and his brother Prince Heinrich developed this castle into a place that has lost none of its magic to this day.
Just under 100 km from the center of Berlin in northern Brandenburg, Rheinsberg Castle is located in the picturesque village of the same name on the shores of Lake Grienericksee. Originally built in the 16th century, the moated castle first belonged to Crown Prince Friedrich, who left it to his brother Prince Heinrich after his accession to the throne. The palace was a place of work with an experimental character for renowned architects such as Johann Gottfried Kemmeter, Georg Wenzeslaus von Knobelsdorff, Georg Friedrich von Boumann and Carl Gotthard Langhans, as well as artists such as Antoine Pesne.
Music and theater attracted numerous artists to the Musenhof Rheinsberg and filled it with cultural life. Enthusiasm for this gem continued centuries later, with Theodor Fontane and Kurt Tucholsky paying tribute to the magic of the place in their works.
