Schönhausen 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. Long after Elisabeth Christine, the wife of Frederick the Great, maintained an elegant court here in the eighteenth century, Schönhausen became a focus of Cold War tensions during the post-war Communist era. After the Wall fell, the palace took centre stage again as it was the site for the “Two Plus Four Talks” that led to the reunification of the two German states in 1990. The palace exhibition takes visitors on a tour of three centuries of German history that’s full of many contrasts. In addition to precious Baroque interiors such as the lavishly restored garden room and the spacious staircase, the palace also has some rooms authentically furnished as they were in the Communist era.
