    Chamber music by Schubert, Sarasate, Webern, Franck, Purcell, Brahms, Fauré and Bach, closely interwoven with a story by Ben Süverkrüp. In view of the aggressive world situation, an evening that could not be more topical and comforting.

    A Journey into the past

    In its current form, Friedrichsfelde Manor House presents itself as an early classical structure. However, its history dates back to 1685, and it has witnessed numerous changes in ownership throughout its eventful past. Last owned by the von Treskow family, whose final resting place is near the polar bears, it was occupied by Soviet troops in May 1945. Eventually, thanks to Professor Dathe, it became a 'weighty landmark' of the newly opened zoo in 1955.

    The restoration work, initiated in 1967, reached completion with the ceremonial reopening on June 11, 1981. The founding of Tierpark Berlin played a pivotal role in securing and reconstructing Friedrichsfelde Manor House, allowing it to shine once again in its former glory. Inside, historical wall coverings and paintings adorn the manor house. A particular highlight is the classical ballroom, which regularly hosts cultural events. Additional information about other events and regular opening times can be found here.

    Friedrichsfelde Manor House and its surrounding gardens were built in 1685, and they have witnessed the passage of numerous lords throughout their eventful history.
