About
Staatliche Museen zu Berlin closed from Saturday onwards From Saturday, 14.03.2020, onwards all buildings of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin will be closed until further notice. This measure is intended to minimise the spread of the coronavirus. We ask our visitors for their understanding. Schloss Kopenick (Kopenick Palace) has been used as an exhibition space by the Kunstgewerbemuseum since 1963. Before the reunification of Germany, artworks located in the east of Berlin were put on display here. The buildings on the island were later fully renovated and since 2004 have housed the permanent exhibition "RoomArt", focussing on the decorative arts of the Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo periods. Spread across three floors, the museum presents outstanding masterworks in interior design from the 16th to 18th centuries.

Top museum outside Berlin. Unique collection of furniture.
Jan 2019 • Couples
This old palace just near the beautiful Müggelsee should absolutely be visited by art interested persons. Their unique collection of furniture and items from the Renaissance up to the Barock period are astonishing. Including the marvellous silver ensemble from Berliner Schloss.

An Excuse to Visit the Suburb of Kopenick
Aug 2016 • Solo
Schloss Kopennick houses parts of the Museum of Applied Arts (the other parts of the exhibition is in Kuturforum Complex near Potsdamer Platz) This museum is actually a part of the 20+ museums that belong to "State Museums of Berlin" (Staatliche Museen zu Berlin). With a €50 annual ticket (Personalisierte Jahreskarte Classic), I can visit as many times I want in the specified one year period.

While I had been to all other museums in "State Museums of Berlin" system, Schloss Kopennick was the only one I hadn't visited - until the summer of 2016.

Its location is the main reason why most people (even with a museum pass) haven't made it to this museum. You have to take S-Bahn to southeastern suburb then change to a tram to get to the town center of Kopenick. Though it is still a part of Berlin, it does feel like a separate town (with its own Rathaus/City Hall).

As the name suggests ("Schloss" is "palace" in German), the museum is housed in an old palace. While the Palace is not too grand, it is lovely with its baroque style and surrounded by greenery and lakes. It is very lovely to stroll around the palace ground.

Inside the palace, the exhibitions of the decorative arts are mostly furniture from medieval eras. Personally I do not think it is very interesting. However, if you indeed have a museum pass, it is a brilliant idea to make it here - not only for the Museum but also for the lovely palace ground the seeing the nice town center of Kopenick.

Grounds only but lovely place
Aug 2016 • Solo
I only managed to visit the grounds of the Schloss as the museum inside was closed on the day of my visit but it was a truely lovely building situated on the water. The grounds are well kept and beautiful on a sunny day. I would have preferred to see inside but was happy I got to see the palace when in the area and learn a little more about it and Köpenick itself.

Museum of Apllied Art
Jun 2016 • Couples
Today this wonderfull castle is the second museum of applied art in Berlin. The Castle itself is worth to visit, you get a little insight feeling, how the aristocrats was living. It is far away from the tourist routes - very few people visit it.

Fairy Tale Castle
Jun 2016 • Family
This is a hidden gem in Northern Germany, reminding one of glass slippers and pumpkin coaches. If you are anywhere within a reasonable distance, this is a place to visit and enjoy to its fullest.

Well worth the effort

Even if you've seen the main Museum of Applied Arts in central Berlin, this is a must for anyone interested opulent interior design. Schloss Köpenick is the palace that houses the Staatliche Museen’s collection of Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo decorative arts. In terms of design and workmanship, some of the pieces are knockouts, especially the “curiosity cabinets” that wealthy Germans in the 17th Century used to house, and show off, their small treasures. Some of the cabinets were inlaid with mother-of-pearl and semi-precious stones. Others were covered with intricate veneers. All featured cunning little drawers. Much of the full-sized furniture was also beautifully worked. But the palace rooms themselves, particularly the ceilings, stole the show. The ones painted with classical scenes were lovely; those in molded plaster were the most remarkable I had seen anywhere. In the Coat-of-Arms Hall, the legs of two of the angels actually curve down from the ceiling.

Nice place but far from city center and little to see
The green location nearby the river is a nice quite place. The kunstgewerbemuseum which has been shifted in the castle is quite poor but nice staff.
