built from 1542 to 1543 in the style of the early Renaissance for the electoral Prince of Brandenburg Joachim II. Hector. It was bearing the name “Zum grünen Wald” meaning “at the green forest” which gave the whole Grunewald it’s name.
Since 1932 it is used as a museum hosting pictures from the 15th to the 19th century including some from Lucas Cranach d. Ä. and his son.
Berlin’s only Renaissance castle hall can also be visited here.
