The Kunstgewerbemuseum Schloss Köpenick is located in the baroque Köpenick Palace, in a charming setting on the banks of the river Dahme, and houses the treasures of the Museum of Decorative Arts.
Schloss Köpenick has been used by the Museum of Decorative Arts since 1963. During the German division, the holdings located in the eastern part of Berlin were exhibited here. After extensive renovation of all the buildings on the castle island, the Museum of Decorative Arts has been showing a permanent exhibition of works of “Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo spatial art” since 2004. Unique masterpieces of interior design from the 16th to the 18th century are presented on three floors.
You can also marvel at the baroque stucco decorations preserved in almost all rooms of the palace. In the basement, archaeological excavation finds document the building and settlement history of Köpenick Castle Island.
