Kopenick Palace – a palace towering on the island of the same name on the Dame River. Not far from the palace is the town hall.

The island of Kopenick has been inhabited for a long time and is one of the most ancient settlements in modern Berlin. During the period from the 8th to the 9th century, the Slavs built fortress walls and an impressive fortress here. In the middle of the 16th century, the old building of the fortress was demolished. By order of Elector Joachim II Hector, a hunting castle was built. After the death of the Elector, during the Thirty Years' War, Gustav II Adolf lived here. In 1677, the reconstruction of the palace began for Frederick III, the future king of Prussia. The Dutch architect Rutger van Langervelt supervised the reconstruction. In 1679 – 1682. the northern pavilion was built. Later, another architect, Johann Arnold Nering, built an outbuilding and a palace church.

From 1994 to 2004, large-scale restoration work was carried out. The palace was opened as a branch of the Berlin Museum of Decorative and Applied Arts. The main building of the museum is located in the Kulturforum.
