Presentation
Schloss Schönhausen in Berlin-Pankow is unique among the landmarks in Berlin, because the Baroque palace has remained standing despite often serving as the stage for important events in German history and politics.

Between 1740 and 1797, Schönhausen was the summer residence of Queen Elisabeth Christine, the wife of Prussian King Frederick the Great. She had the palace rebuilt and expanded into a Rococo showpiece. In addition to the grand ballroom and an elegant staircase, the king’s chambers hold valuable tapestries and a cedar gallery.

The palace took on a key role in East Germany between 1949 and 1990. Schönhausen was the official residence of GDR President Wilhelm Pieck; after remodelling in 1965, it served as the primary guest house of the East German government. In addition to the completely preserved furniture from Wilhelm Pieck’s office, the state guest suite is presented with its original furnishings from the 1960s.

Schönhausen once again played an important role as Germany’s division was coming to an end. In 1990, the central round table discussions leading to reunification were held in the presidential quarters.
