    1768
    Frederick II received the request of a Rhineland Grenadier to create a vineyard. On the ridge that follows the castle of Sanssouci in the west, also called "Klausberg", he had a 200 m long surface of the southern slope terraced the following year.
    It developed a "vineyard in the Rhineland way with the best vines," so it promised, at least, the grenadier of his majesty. However, the wine failed and the winemaker resigned. Instead of vines, the king now ordered the cultivation of peaches and "Azaroli apples".1770 was the long-planned Drachenhaus as a quarter for the Grenadier. The model was the Ta-Ho pagoda from Canton, about which English architect William Chambers reported in 1757 in a book. Since the Dragon House was built, more than 235 years have passed. During this time, the gem has undergone numerous restorations in order to retain the magic of illusionist painting and to continue to bring the cheerful and light architecture to life.
