The New Palace in Sanssouci Park (Potsdam)

Numerous castles are found in the German states of Berlin and Brandenburg. These buildings, some of which have a history of over 1000 years, were the setting of historical events, domains of famous personalities and are still imposing buildings to this day.

This list encompasses castles described in German as Castle (castle), Festung (fort/fortress), Palace (manor house) and Palace/Palast (palace). Many German castles after the middle ages were mainly built as royal or ducal palaces rather than as a fortified building.
