Prince Carl of Prussia, younger brother of the later Kaiser Wilhelm I, traveled to Italy at the age of 21. Inspired by the grace of the Italian landscape and architecture, he planned his own residence on the Italian model. His father did not hesitate long and in the collaboration of garden artist Peter Lenné and master builder Karl Friedrich Schinkel one of the most beautiful castles in Prussia was built. The simple and restrained villa could undoubtedly stand in Tuscany and the gracefully designed garden down to the Wannseeufer completes the ensemble. The castle can be visited from March to December at weekends and from April to October also during the week. The coach house now houses a cozy café-restaurant.

Glienicke Castle and the surrounding park are the result of the "Dream of Italy" that Hohenzollern Prince Carl von Prussia realized here in the 19th century. After a very checkered history of use, the building has been used primarily as a museum since 1987.
