The Jagdschloss Grunewald, a hunting lodge, is the oldest preserved castle of Berlin, Germany. It is located at the south waterside of the Grunewaldsee and is part of the locality Dahlem (Berlin) at the borough Steglitz-Zehlendorf.

The Jagdschloss was built in 1542/1543. Building owner was Joachim II Hector the Prince-elector of the Margraviate of Brandenburg. The building was created in the Renaissance style and got the name Zum grünen Wald, to the green forest, and gave the whole Grunewald (forest) its name. Around 1800 the Château got the name Grunewald too. During reconstructions between 1705 und 1708 by Frederick I, the first King of Prussia, it got its Baroque design by master builder Martin Grünberg.

The Jagdschloss is administrated by the Prussian Palaces and Gardens Foundation Berlin-Brandenburg since 1932 and is used as Museum. It contains lot of Paintings from Lucas Cranach the Elder, his son Lucas Cranach the Younger plus paintings from the Netherlands and Germany from 15th to 19th century. The Jagdschloss has the sole hall in Berlin from time of the Renaissance. Since 1977 a hunting kit collection is established at a neighboring building.

  • Nice historic place in Grunewald. Easily accessible by foot, bike, car or public transportation. Open-air concerts and grill tents. Nice vibe of old hunting grounds. Beautiful forest all around.
  • Beautiful little castle in the middle of the forest, near a lake. Perfect spot for daydreaming in summer as there is a cute cafe with a terrace nearby.
