Groß Rietz Castle is one of the most significant rural aristocratic estates in Brandenburg. This castle, like most other Baroque castles in Brandenburg, was built during the reign of the Prussian King Frederick II. This early building, which is unusual for Brandenburg, is one of the outstanding buildings in the cultural landscape of the Brandenburg Marches. The original complex of castle, gardens, domestic buildings, churches and churchyard can still be made out. The castle was built between 1693 and 1700 for Hans Georg von der Marwitz, a ‘Hofmarschall’ (chief steward) of Frederick I, possibly to plans by the architect Cornelius Ryckwaert. His grandson sold the Baroque castle to the Prussian Minister of State Johann Christoph von Wöllner. As advisor to King William II, he exerted considerable influence and was the author of the Religious Edict of 1788. In Groß Rietz, he dedicated himself to economic and ecological developments in agriculture. In 1861, the estate and castle returned to the ownership of the von der Marwitz family, where it remained until it was confiscated in 1945.

Today, the castle is owned by Brandenburgische Schlössergesellschaft and is rented to a private occupier. The castle can only be viewed from outside. The Baroque castle garden was probably completed in 1702. No landscaping plans have been discovered and no-one knows how it originally looked. Carl Wilhelm von der Marwitz (1737−1811) had a number of alterations to the garden design carried out. Only the plinth of the statue of Minerva, erected in 1778, still exists today. The entrance to the gardens is flanked by two slim sandstone obelisks, decorated with floral designs. Between them stands a wrought-iron gate which was added in around 1880.

After the estate was taken over by the District Commissioner Peter Ludwig Friedrich von Itzenplitz (1769-1834), an extensive landscape garden was created after 1819 which, in line with the ideal of the “ornamental farm”, also incorporated the agricultural surroundings and farm building into the design. The landscape plans from 1819, 1825 and 1828 show park layouts providing views across the surrounding landscape, the nearby village and the farm building.

Year of construction: 1702
