Kunstgewerbemuseum Schloss Köpenick (Museum of Decorative Arts)

The Museum of Decorative Arts or “Kunstgewerbemuseum” is set in Kopenick Castle and is one of the oldest of its kind in Germany, displaying large scale tapestries, extravagant lacquerware and wall panels along with valuable centerpieces, porcelain, and silver. The sumptuous displays offer visitors a study of German art history and it’s influence through the ages.

Highlights of the museum include four paneled rooms, comprising the richly inlaid Renaissance panels from the Swiss Haldenstein Castle and Castle Hollrich.

Most of the pieces featured are of great value and there are even items commissioned by representatives from the clergy to royalty.
