The Captain from Köpenick by robschueller

This Prussian soldier with its large military coat reminded me of the old German film „The Captain from Köpenick“
(German: Der Hauptmann von Köpenick) based upon the play The Captain of Köpenick by Carl Zuckmayer.

The play was based on the true story of Wilhelm Voigt, a German impostor who masqueraded as a Prussian military officer in 1906 and became famous as the Captain of Köpenick.

In fact, it is Prince Albrecht of Prussia with a general’s coat in front of Charlottenburg Palace in Berlin.
