Brief history of the Hunting lodge Glienicke

The castle was built in 1682-93 by Charles Philippe Dieussart for the Great Elector Friedrich Wilhelm of Brandenburg.
It was then extended in the French Baroque style, served as a military hospital, was used as an oilcloth and wallpaper factory and in 1832 Wilhelm von Türk turned the castle into an orphanage.  Prince Karl of Prussia had the castle rebuilt for his son Friedrich Karl in 1859. After 1919 the palace began to decay. After that the owners changed several times. In November 2005 the reconstruction began and on 23 August 2006 the topping-out ceremony was celebrated.
