Stiftung Schloss Neuhardenberg foundation

The Stiftung Schloss Neuhardenberg foundation was set up in 2001 by the German Savings Banks Association, and charged with the management of the grounds and the complex of buildings that make up Schloss Neuhardenberg.

These include a hotel, two restaurants, the neoclassical Schloss or palace designed by Schinkel that is now in part used as a conference venue, an extensive landscaped park and other premises used for the Stiftung Schloss Neuhardenberg programme of cultural events.

The group of buildings also includes the so-called Schinkel Church, which is the parish church of the Evangelische Kirchengemeinde Neuhardenberg; however, the parish has kindly agreed that the foundation may also use the church as an event venue.

Buildings and grounds

The complex now known as Schloss Neuhardenberg consists of the palace itself and several outbuildings, the Schinkel Church and the park. Together, these form a homogenous unit, in architectural terms.

History

There is a small village in Mark Brandenburg that reflects Prussian, German and European history like a mirror.

Famous personalities
