Friedrichsfelde manor house and its surrounding gardens take you back in time to 18th-century Berlin.
Most recently, it belonged to the von Treskow family, whose graveyard is situated close to the polar bear habitat. In May 1945 the manor was occupied by Soviet troops. Thanks to the efforts of Heinrich Dathe, in 1955 it was deemed an important landmark within the newly opened Tierpark and saved from demolition. Renovation work began in 1967, and the manor house was ceremonially reopened on 11 June 1981. The splendid renovation was only made possible thanks to the establishment of the Tierpark. Inside, the walls are decorated with historic wall coverings and paintings. A particular highlight is the neo-classical banqueting hall, which regularly hosts cultural events.
