Beautiful castle with an eventful history (not least during the Cold War, as the castle belonged directly to the border area and many parts of the area and the buildings were destroyed). A visit can be combined with countless other attractions (for example Glienicker Brücke, Klein Glienicke as a former GDR exclave, Teltowkanal and, and, and). It can now be visited again without scaffolding.

The castle Babelsberg is next to the Flatowturm one of the recommended objects in the park Babelsberg. The park was designed by Prince Pückler-Muskau. Impressive are the beautiful old trees, the view axes and the view over the deep lake. During a visit to Potsdam, the Park Babelsberg as well as the Sanssouci Park should always be planned as a sightseeing destination.

Babelsberg Palace was built as a summer residence for Prince Wilhelm, the future Emperor Wilhelm I and his wife Augusta, who came from the House of Saxony-Weimar, in two phases. It is located in the park of the same name and part of the Brandenburg capital Potsdam. The planning was carried out by the architects Karl Friedrich Schinkel, Ludwig Persius and Johann Heinrich Strack. The conversation between King Wilhelm I and Bismarck took place in the castle and the adjacent park on September 22, 1862, which ended when Bismarck was appointed Prime Minister and Foreign Minister.
Babelsberg Palace is under the administration of the Prussian Palaces and Gardens Berlin-Brandenburg Foundation and as a World Heritage Site within the Potsdam ensemble under the protection of UNESCO. The architecture of Babelsberg Castle was used by Schinkel student Friedrich Hitzig as a model for the construction of Kittendorf Castle (1848–1853) in the Demmin district of Mecklenburg.
