King Frederick William I. (1688-1740), known as the “Soldier King”, loved this castle since his young days. Later, he made it into his “Autumn Residence”. He ruled from here, he conducted daily his famous “Tobacco Council” and he indulged in the surrounding forests his major passion, namely hunting. Today, visitors get an insight into the living environment and the artistic creations in Brandenburg-Prussia in the 18th century. A curious part of it are the 40 paintings which the king personally painted. Many theme-based guided tours, concerts and readings round off the cultural programme in the castle. The museum extends its invitation to the visitors to stroll through and linger in the French Baroque garden.
