castle church Köpenick

 

At the mouth of the Dahme in the Spree, in the direct vicinity of the old town of Berlin-Köpenick (now district Treptow-Köpenick) is the Baroque moated castle of the Hohenzollern since the 17th century on the remains of a Slavic castle from the 13th century – built in Style of the Dutch Baroque.

It has remained largely unchanged since then and still radiates the same grandeur as it did 400 years ago – a rare and special gem!
Towards the castle, the castle church was built 1682 – 1685, designed by the young architect Johann Arnold Nering. There, both the courtiers and the Huguenots, which came to Berlin, Neukölln and Köpenick as religious refugees, celebrated their worship.

The church, a domed central building with arched windows and thus reminds of the Huguenot buildings in France, the “temples”. Since it was built as a court church, it is comparatively rich in its interior.

The stucco ceiling designed by Giovanni Caroveri and the emblem with the bust of Elisabeth Henriette, the first wife of the future Elector and King Frederick III./I. of Brandenburg-Prussia, are just a small part of what there is to admire inside.
