Places of interest

The history of the charming royal seat and baroque town of Rheinsberg on the river Rhin is inextricably linked with its palace and the Hohenzollern ruling family. As well as the interior of the palace itself ,it is also worth exploring the extensive grounds with the Kavalierhaus and park. One architectural gem in the centre of town is the Church of St. Lawrence which houses a number of sacred works of art.
Rheinsberg Palace
Neo-classical Rheinsberg Palace dates back to the 18th century and once belonged to Prince Henry, the brother of Frederick the Great. It is set in a picturesque location on Lake Grienicksee and surrounded by extensive gardens. The building has a certain magical quality and was even reputed to have served as a model for Sanssouci Palace in Potsdam. It is well worth going on a tour through its 50 or so state apartments and rooms which are filled with works of art.
Built in 1738, the Kavalierhaus is one of the Rheinsberg Palace buildings and once served as a residence for the servants of crown prince Frederick. Since 1763 this imposing structure has housed a small theatre and since 1774, the Palace Theatre, which is currently home to the Federal Music Academy.
Church of St. Lawrence
The simple structure of the Church of St. Lawrence is situated in the centre of town. The oldest part of the building, the eastern chancel, dates back to the 14th century, although today there is little left of the early-Gothic architecture. After a fire in 1566 the church was restored in a Renaissance style and contains some interesting features such as a high altar, font, horseshoe-shaped gallery and an 18th century organ.
