Schloss Rheinsberg.

Introduction

Originally a moated medieval castle Schloss Rheinsberg was reconstructed in 1566 in Renaissance style. King Frederick William I of Prussia acquired it in 1734, and bestowed it to his 22-year-old son, the future Frederick the Great. The crown prince spent four years here, extending and remodelling the castle in the so-called Frederician Rococo style, which was to culminate in Sanssouci. Frederick described his years in Rheinsberg as the happiest of his life.
