Group Offers Schönhausen Palace
Schönhausen Palace opened in the Berlin-Pankow district in 2009 after nearly five years of restoration. Schönhausen occupies a unique position in the monument landscape of Berlin, because the Baroque palace that has remayned intact over the course of centuries was repeatedly an important scene for German history and politics.
Queen Elisabeth Christine, the wife of Frederick the Great, cultivated an elegant court life at Schönhausen in the 18th century and it shifted back into focus in the early years of the GDR during the 20th century,s Cold War.
The palace played an important historical role once again as the negotiation site of the “Two Plus Four Agreement” (Treaty on the Final Settlement with Respect to Germany) during German Reunification.
The exhibition shows this varied use, offering a tour through the last three centuries of German history that is rich in contrasts. Luxurious Baroque interiors, such as the extensively restored Garden Hall and the expansive staircases, as well as rooms from the GDR period arranged true to the originals, are among other rooms worth mentioning.
