The Schloss Britz (Britz Castle) is the former manor-house of the historical country estate and village Britz, now a district of Berlin-Neukolln. Frederick I of Prussia gave the estate to his minister Samuel von Chwalkowski at the end of the Thirty Years War, and it was von Chwalkowski who had the schloss built. It was completed in 1706. The building, along with the grounds, have been national monuments since 1971, and today serve as the headquarters of the Kulturstiftung Schloss Britz and includes a museum showcasing the splendid interiors of the Gründerzeit era. The impeccable grounds include an old farmyard complete with stables. Both the building and grounds are well worth a visit, not least given how the entrance prices are a bargain.
