    The castle garden is freely accessible and well maintained. In the garden is a tea pavilion and a water basin - a nice destination for a Sunday afternoon walk.

    The castle can be visited. The historical background of the castle is interesting and can be read on display boards.

    In the castle park there is also a small café with delicious cakes. The coffee cart is an ideal place for a visit to the castle

    Schloss Niederschönhausen, the changing history is briefly and concisely portrayed here in the pavilion.
    In the reign of Frederick the Great, the castle gained historical importance as the summer residence of Queen Elisabeth Christine of Prussia and as the official residence of Wilhelm Pieck, the first (and only) president of the German Democratic Republic (GDR).
    Schloss Schönhausen has been open since December 2009 for museum use for visitors. It belongs to the Prussian Palaces and Gardens Foundation Berlin-Brandenburg.

    With the founding of the GDR in 1949, Schloss Schönhausen was transferred from the Soviet Union to the GDR and served Wilhelm Pieck from 1949 to 1960 as the official residence of the President of the GDR. For this purpose, it was in turn to rebuild the castle and an extension of the complex to the north by garages for the vehicle fleet of the President and to the south for a casino and a chancellery in a representative courtyard with two gatehouses. The castle garden was separated by a wall into an inner, no longer public, and an outer, public part. The interior design of the garden architect Reinhold Lingner as a cheerful, open-looking garden in the typical style of the 1950s.
