Always enchanting! Britz Castle and Manor House (Schloss & Gutshof Britz) are not just a collection of historic buildings. They're also a chance to get close to nature right in the heart of the city. Horses, sheep and goats are just some of the animals that live here and they're all looking forward to seeing you.
