The small castle stands on the former site of a moated castle and dates from the 16th century in its current form. King Friedrich Wilhelm I spent a large part of his youth here and kept fleeing to idyllic Wusterhausen during his reign. His numerous visits and hunting trips to the castle earned the place the suffix Königs Wusterhausen. Today the castle houses a museum. A special core of the exhibition are 40 paintings that the king painted himself. After visiting the castle, you can stroll through the beautifully landscaped castle gardens. The castle café is also located in the former farm buildings around the castle.

The castle is based on a moated castle from the 14th century. In 1682 the estate was acquired by the Great Elector Friedrich Wilhelm for his son Friedrich I, who in turn gave it to his son Friedrich Wilhelm I, later the "soldier king".
Today there is a center of culture. The castle once again serves as a museum.
