    It was built in 1682-93 by Charles Philippe Dieussart for the Great Elector Friedrich Wilhelm of Brandenburg. Under Frederick I it was expanded in 1701 in the style of the French Baroque and embellished. The soldier king Frederick William I had the hunting lodge Glienicke set up as a military hospital for the Guards Regiment. Frederick the Great donated it in 1763 to the oilcloth and wallpaper manufacturer Isaac Levin Joel, who produced oilcloth wallpaper there. In 1827, the hunting lodge came into the hands of Wilhelm von Türk, who turned it into an orphanage in 1832. In 1859, Prince Karl of Prussia had the castle rebuilt in Baroque forms for his son Friedrich Karl by the court architect Ferdinand von Arnim. In 1889, Albert Geyer opened the central building and added a tower.

    After 1919, a decline of the castle began. The castle with the park came under the National Socialist State Commissioner and later mayor Julius Lippert (journalist) in 1934 over a blackmailing of the Jewish entrepreneur Ignatz Nacher in the possession of the city. Lippert and Dresdner Bank had worked together to rob the entrepreneur, the major shareholder of the Engelhardt brewery, of his company. The bank owned the park with its castles, Lippert the blackmailed shares. They then did an exchange. Lippert made the park available to the general public and took himself the castle as befitting residence. Previously, he had the castle renovated at government expense.

Johann Jakob Mirow acquired, who had built there shortly thereafter a manor house. At the beginning of the 19th century, there was a complete redesign in the style of classicism, with which the architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel was entrusted. The landscape gardening design of the property was left to the owner Karl August Graf von Hardenberg the then gardening companion Peter Joseph Lenné, who was later to shape the garden art in Prussia almost half a century.
