Schloss Tegel, Berlin

3.3
The Schloss Tegel or Humboldt-Schloss is a country house in Tegel, part of the Reinickendorf district of the German capital Berlin. The brothers Wilhelm and Alexander von Humboldt spent much of their childhood in a former schloss on the site and on the estate, which extends almost as far as Lake Tegel.

The present building was built between 1820 and 1824 by Wilhelm von Humboldt to designs by Karl Friedrich Schinkel. It still belongs to the Heinz family, descendants of Wilhelm. It houses the private Humboldt-Museum, open to guided tours during the summer.

  • Lovely place, needed some time to find it, as it is hidden in a quiet neighbourhood. Don't miss the old oak Fatty Betty nearby.
  • This is where The von Humboldt Family lived. More places are still named after this Alexander von Humboldt than any person ever in the history of our world. His grave is here, as is the one of his brother Wilhelm, who founded Humboldt University.
