The small castle stands on the former site of a moated castle and dates to its present form from the 16th century. King Frederick William I spent much of his youth here and also fled during his reign again and again in the idyllic Wusterhausen. His numerous visits and hunting trips to the castle brought the place the suffix Königs Wusterhausen. Today the castle houses a museum. At the heart of the exhibition are 40 paintings painted by the King himself. After visiting the castle you can still stroll through the beautifully landscaped castle garden. Today, the castle cafeteria is 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 purchased by the Great Elector Friedrich Wilhelm for his son Friedrich I, who in turn gave it to his son Friedrich Wilhelm I, who later became the "soldier king".
Today there is a center of culture there. The castle again serves as a museum.

The two-story, almost square structure was built up to the upper floor using field stones. It shows the type of “fixed house” that was mandatory for the Renaissance. The north and south sides of the building show the characteristic gable fronts of the castle with steep and parallel gable roofs. On the northern courtyard facade is the stair tower in front of it, shifted from the central axis, with a tail hood covered with slate.
In the ballroom of the palace there are around 40 paintings that the soldier king painted by hand between 1735 and 1739 in Schloss Kossenblatt and that did not reach Wusterhausen until 1863. In front of the castle are the two cavaliers' houses, which together form the trapezoidal castle courtyard.
