Köpenick

Hotels near Köpenick, Berlin, Germany .

Köpenick is Berlin’s largest district, with ample gardens, woodlands and lakes. It is the main recreation area of the city, but at the same time the biggest industrial site of the region. In summer, thousands of visitors are attracted by hiking and water-sports facilities. The Royal Palace is a nice adornment to the area. You can reach the district with S3 line starting at Ostbahnhof with a journey that takes 20 minutes. The Old Town grew on an island and, because of its numerous laundries, has become known in the 19th century as Berlin’s Washroom. Several 18th and 19th century houses line Alt-Köpenick Strasse. In the centre of Köpenick Old Town lies the Neo-Gothic brick building of the old Rathaus, which has become famous due to the German fairy-tale of the Captain of Köpenick. The story was based on an escapade of a released prisoner who managed to steal the town hall treasury just by dressing up in military uniform. To the north of this house, a short distance away is the Church of St. Lawrence. Köpenick Palace occupies the site of a medieval Slav stronghold that was the residence of Prince Jacza de Copnic. The moated castle was transformed into a Renaissance style hunting lodge in the 16th century. At the end of the 17th century, it was rebuilt in its present form. Since 1963, it has housed a part of the Museum of Applied Art. The Baroque interior of the castle is a suitable setting for its collection of furniture, pottery and porcelain, glass, metalwork and goldsmith’s work. A high point is the silverware collection used for royal dining service. The Palace Chapel houses concerts and is also well worth a visit. The park containing rare species of trees and Lange Brucke leading to the island offer a scenic view of the moat and the Old Town. The narrow streets and fishermen’s cottages are a unique view in the surrounding Berlin area. Everything here appeals to the visitor as nowhere else has a German town preserved such architectural treasures.
