The magnificent manor house in Berlin’s Neukölln district was built in the early 18th century on the site of a medieval half-timbered house and, as a manor house, was owned by high-ranking Prussian court officials and ministers of state. In 1971, Schloss Britz was placed under a preservation order. The district of Neukölln restored the castle from 1985 to 1988 and reconstructed the associated park. Since 1989, cultural activities have been provided by the Kulturstiftung Schloss Britz.
The Carl Bechstein Competition for children and young people is held annually in the Kulturstall of Schloss Britz in cooperation with the Kulturstiftung Schloss Britz.
