Schloss Britz looks back on a long history. Originally, the castle was the residence of the associated manor Britz. Only at the beginning of the 19th century, the castle came into the possession of bourgeois manufacturers, which significantly expanded the manor and the castle. The last changes to the structure of the castle took place under the direction of the architect Carl Busse in 1880. Since then, Britz Castle has been a Neo-Renaissance building with a stair tower.
The castle can be visited today. In one part of the rooms you will find the permanent exhibition "Representative Home Decor of the Gründerzeit" and in the rest of the museum there are changing art exhibitions by famous artists.
Tuesday to Sunday from 11 to 19 o'clock
More information and admission fees can be found at schlossbritz.de.
