    Tip: while in Königs Wusterhausen visit the enchanting Schloss Königs Wusterhausen (Koenigs Wusterhausen Palace) which is part of the UNESCO world heritage "Palaces and Parks of Potsdam and Berlin". King Friedrich Wilhelm I, known as the "soldier King", Königs Wusterhausen loved the place since his youth. Here he prepared for his reign, developed new ideas for a well-organized and efficient State administration and began to build up a respectable army, known as the "Long guys". He later spent many happy hours with his wife and his 14 children at the hunting lodge, which was originally a medieval castle. The famous Tobacco Cabinet (Tabakskollegium), a social gathering where politics was conducted, was held here every evening. Every evening called Friedrich Wilhelm I. one his famous tobacco College, where policy was made in a round and bawdy jokes.

    Today the Schlossmuseum (Palace Museum) offers an authentic insight into the living environment and artistic pursuits of Brandenburg-Prussia during the first half of the 18th century. Forty of the pictures exhibited here actually come from the king himself. The ensemble of monuments at Schloss Koenigs Wusterhausen also includes the Kavalierhäuser (cavalier houses); these used to accommodate the king’s guests and are now home to art and the culinary arts.
