Schloss Köpenick

Köpenick Palace

Beautifully situated on the banks of the river Dahme, the palace complex, never fully completed, is located on a manmade island on the outskirts of the old town centre of Köpenick. The main building was constructed between 1677 and 1690 on the site of an earlier hunting palace of the Brandenburg electors to designs by architects Rutger van Langervelt and Johann Arnold Nering.

Schloss Köpenick (Köpenick Palace) has been used as an exhibition space by the Kunstgewerbemuseum since 1963. Before the reunification of Germany, artworks located in the east of Berlin were put on display here. The buildings on the island were later fully renovated and since 2004 have housed the permanent exhibition 'RoomArt', focussing on the decorative arts of the Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo periods. Spread over three floors, the museum presents outstanding masterworks in interior design from the 16th to 18th centuries.

A further noteworthy feature of the palace is that the original Baroque plasterwork has survived intact in almost all of its rooms. On the basement level, an exhibition of archaeological findings documents the history of settlement and building on the island of Schloss Köpenick.

Open 11 am - 5pm Tue to Sun (although in winter the palace is closed Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays)
Entrance is €6, concession €3
