About the Museum
The castle was from 1740 to 1797 the summer residence of the Prussian Queen Elisabeth Christine. The wife of Frederick the Great decisively shaped the place she lived in for more than 50 years. Outstanding are the largely preserved interior design of the late 17th and 18th centuries. In addition to the sumptuous ballroom and the elegant staircase, valuable wallpapers and precious furnishings have been preserved in the living room and in the representative rooms of the monarch. The richly stuccoed ballroom on the first floor is Berlin's only original spatial creation of the late Rococo.
