The impressive Oranienburg Palace is one of the most important baroque buildings in the Mark Brandenburg. It symbolizes the path of the Electorate of Brandenburg to royal dignity.
The building of the palace goes back to a country estate that was built in 1651 and was built for the first wife of the Great Elector, Louise Henriette. The born princess of Orange-Nassau gave the place "Oranienburg" its name.
In memory of his mother Louise Henriette, King Friedrich I had the palace expanded and lavishly furnished at the end of the 17th century. Around 1700 the castle was considered the most beautiful of the Prussian residences. The palace and garden experienced a second heyday in the middle of the 18th century under Prince August Wilhelm of Prussia, a brother of Frederick the Great.
After an eventful history of use, the Oranienburg Castle Museum is now presenting a collection of masterful works of art, including the magnificent étagères in the porcelain chamber. Outstanding are a group of ivory seating furniture, a series of tapestries from the manufacture of Pierre Mercier in Berlin, which depict the glory of the Great Elector, sculptures by François Dieussart and sculptures by the sculptor Bartholomeus Eggers.
The extraordinary collection of paintings includes Masterpieces by the great Flemish Anthony van Dyck. Another glamorous highlight is the silver vault, in which selected examples of royal silver are shown.
