Köpenick’s old town is lovely. On a visit there, you can’t miss the Köpenick Palace. Its history is super interesting as it was built and rebuilt in different styles over the centuries on a man made island.

Today, the palace hosts the Prussian Museum of Decorative Arts that shows decorative arts from the Baroque, Renaissance and Rococo periods. It is fascinating to observe how interior design was between the 16th and 18th century along with original Baroque plasterwork that survived all of Berlin’s histories of destruction.
