I came upon this unusual building and restaurant on route to a different location. Work to build the 33 metre tall water tower started in 1910 and it supplied the town with water until 1965. It fell into a state of disrepair until funds became available in 1990 and was renovated and reopened 1991. It has been owned by its present owner since 2005...more
The Dahmeland Museum is located just across the road from the Schloss Konigs Wusterhausen. The building was originally in part of the palace grounds and was the royal foresters house. The building also served as a school and was the local Stasi Headquarters during the GDR era and a library before becoming the regional museum in 1996. The entrance...more
One of the main reasons for going to Königs Wusterhausen was to visit the palace which is one of the main tourist attractions in the area. The palace has none of the grandeur of the palaces at Potsdam but I will explain the reasons why later. You have no choice but to go on a guided tour to view the inside of the palace and I was lucky to join one...more

After wandering around Königs Wusterhausen on a lovely warm day I decided to pop into this Eiscafe called Ice & Art for some refreshments. As a lover of ice cream I thought I would try out a ice cream with summer fruit. It was delicious and to be extra naughty I decided to finish it off with a coffee containing Bailey's Irish Cream. The ice cream...more
The restaurant is located in the Kavaliershaus, a house where the guests of the king used to stay. It opened only a few months ago. I had a meal with deer, dumplings and brussel sprouts. They also offered dishes with fish, different kinds of deer, rabbit, duck etc The location is a nice one and the food was good but the service was very very slow...more
It's open daily from 11:30 - 23:00. Last time I was there, was on Valentine's day and as you can guess, it's safer to reserve a table ;-) I'll try to add some price samples soon. For me it's the #68 *g* - roast duck with pineapple & almonds sweet/sour (10 Eur) and for dessert icecream with hot cherries.more
The "Party World" is located just across the street from the railway station. I wasn't there for ages, but some years ago people would call it "kiddie disco" and many people I knew would rather go to the "New World" in Wildau. You'll find more info's about the New World on my Wildau page.But in general, I would still recommend to go to Berlin for...more

Königs Wusterhausen is a transport junction for the region. The A10 and A13 motorways pass close by and the town is also crossed by the B179 linking Berlin to the area. Berlin's Schönefeld airport is only 15km away.
It is well connected to the railway network. There's an S-Bahn station by that the town is connected to the public transportation in Berlin. So if you are in Berlin and want to go to Königs Wusterhausen, then use the S-Bahn "S 46".
You can search for those connections and timetables here:
You can also reach regional trains from the train station in Königs Wusterhausen. Check for connections here:
If you want to go to Königs Wusterhausen or from there to another place in the "Dahme-Spreewald" county, you can do that on bus routes served by the "Regionalen Verkehrsgesellschaft Dahme - Spreewald mbH".
Here's their website:
Well, it's a small town and if Königs Wusterhausen has something like a "shopping street", then it would be the Bahnhofstraße. It's nothing spectacular, you'll find the normal things like photo shops, restaurants, jewellery shops, book shop, travel agency, music shop, a little department store etc
You'll find the bank "Sparkasse Dahme-Spreewald" at this address:
Mo, Wed, Fri: 09.00-16.00
Tue, Thu: 09.00-18.00
Why I tell you stuff like opening times of a bank and where you will find it? Well, in some cities I spent ages to find one and not all have open all day. If I would have had some more detailed infos before, it would have spared me some trouble and saved time.
TIP: If you plan to get yourself some money there out of the opening times, make at least sure that no one sees you. I know it's easier said than done, but try to behave as normal as possible :P
Well, that's the club where I spent lot's of time as teenager. The club was founded more than 30 years ago and my father joined there 1968. So now you can guess who got me into it. I trained there for about 6 years and enjoyed it.The offer training for all age groups, kids to seniors and also for blind/visually impaired people.more

*School for the Blind and Visually handicapped of the State Brandenburg*
I wasn't sure where to add this, but I like the architecture of this building and it's located right next to my old Highschool. But one thing is sure, the School for the Blind is much nicer to look at, than my own boring old school *g*
In 1889 the emperor Wilhelm II ordered the construction of this school. It was finished in 1901. The biggest part of the money was given by Herman Schmidt and because of this fact today the building has his name. At the beginning approx. 100 blind people attended this school and a lot of them even lived there. Wilhelm II often visited the school and gave much money for decorating the school with magnificent pictures and mosaics of Christian people. From 1933 till 1952 it was used for other things. During the war it was used as military hospital, later for administration offices and fro 1951 on again as School for the Blind.
