Oranienburg’s heart is without a doubt its stunning Baroque Palace, built in 1652 by the Dutch Princess Louise Henriette. Located right by the scenic river Havel, it is a must-see for every visitor. The museum that it houses today invites us to dive deeply into the era of kings and queens. This year marks the 800th anniversary of Oranienburg’s first historical mention.
