Trebnitz, situated approximately 60km from Berlin in the eastern part of Brandenburg, looks back over a 780-year history. In its early days, there was an endowment of land from Henry I the Bearded to the Silesean Cistercian monastery in Trebnitz in 1244. The first documented reference to Trebnitz goes back to the year 1244. Over the course of the century, Trebnitz experienced an eventful history. Pillaging by the Hussites in 1432 and imperial troops during the 30 Years War damaged the place repeatedly but always found its way back to life. It is located in the natural Trebnitz Estate Park which extends over some 65 acres and can be traced back to plant lover Georg Friedrich von Ziethen, who was the lord of the manor in Trebnitz from 1707.

Adjacent to the castle there is a large park, an ideal place for working outside or for a walk when the weather is nice, there is a campfire place. If you want to explore the surroundings, you can rent a bicycle.  

 

There is also a café at the territory of the castle.  

 

In recent years, Trebnitz Castle has become more and more of a place for art. Visitors can look at various works in the castle and the surrounding area. The emerging Gustav Seitz Centre is dedicated to the legacy of Gustav Seitz but also to contemporary and sculptural art. It is located at the territory of the castle.
