Originally built in baroque style by Philipp Gerlach in 1663, the Crown Prince's Palace was extended in the mid-19th century by King Fredrich Wilhelm I as a residence for his son, Crown Prince Wilhelm II, who was born here in 1859.

After falling victim to wartime bombs, the Palace you now see is an exact copy of the original, reconstructed in 1968/69. In the East German era, the building was used to receive visiting foreign dignitaries as Indira Gandhi. The Kronenprinzen-Palais has also played a pivotal role in recent history: The German reunification agreement was signed here on 31st August 1990.
