Lonely Planet review

The German president makes his home in snowy white Schloss Bellevue. The neoclassical palace was built in 1785 by Philipp Daniel Boumann for the youngest brother of Frederick the Great, then became a school under Kaiser Wilhelm II and a museum of ethnology under the Nazis. The president is supported by the Bundespräsidialamt (Office of the Federal President) based in the oval modern building south of the palace.
