Top Touring Cycling Routes to Schloss Dammsmühle
  • In its long history since 1650, Dammsmühle Castle has experienced a lot: from its original use as a mill, to the conversion to a manor house (where Napoleon also visited), at times as a place for entertainment and during the Nazi regime as a satellite camp of Sachsenhausen concentration camp. After the war, the Red Army occupied the Dammsmühle, followed by the Stasi.

    Nothing came of the plans to open the baroque manor house to the public again after reunification. Despite this, or perhaps because of this, the decaying Dammsmühle Castle with its enchanted forest and swamp landscape is a fascinating destination for excursions that you can wonderfully explore from the outside.

    getting there
    Reachable on foot or by bike in 2.7 kilometers from Schönwalde train station.

  • There is still a lot of it, which gives an impression of the former beauty of the castle. And it is shocking to see everything decay.

  • Place with a lot of history. Worse fact: in 1940 a Jewish family was expropriated and the castle became privately owned by Heinrich Himmler. He had 20 to 25 forced laborers renovate it.

  • Not quite “Lost Place” anymore. A fence prevents access. In addition, it is currently being extensively restored. A beautiful thing, I think. But I can't say what's going to happen next. private property? Museum? We will see!
