Schönhausen Palace Gardens

Schönhausen Palace Gardens

The Schönhausen Palace Gardens have two distinct atmospheres: a lively, tree-rich public park merges into a secluded, quiet monastery garden.

The Schönhausen Palace Gardens have two faces: that of a lively, tree-covered public park with a meandering stream and that of a secluded, peaceful monastery garden. The reason for this is a wall that divides the park into different areas.
The gardens were built at the same time as Schönhausen Palace and are located in the district of Pankow. The beautiful baroque palace was the summer residence of the Prussian Queen Elisabeth Christine, the wife of Frederick the Great, from 1740 to 1797. The Panke stream meanders through the park, which offers many shady places in the summer. The old acacias, oaks and chestnuts are a wonderful sight to behold.
