Tips

  • Rob Ert

    Beautiful castle with an eventful history (not least through the time of the Cold War, since the castle belonged directly to the border area and many parts of the area and the buildings were destroyed). You can combine a visit with countless other sights (e.g. Glienicker Bridge, Klein Glienicke as a former GDR exclave, Teltow Canal and, and, and). It can now be visited again without scaffolding.

    Beautiful park with old oaks. The castle has a freshly renovated facade and the grounds are very well maintained.

    Beautifully restored and a wonderful park with a wide network of paths. There are still a number of buildings to maintain, but that will certainly be gradually.

    The castle is currently closed. Before you visit it, you should inquire if it is open.

    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.

    The castle is fantastically located and offers great views over the waters of the area and the Glienicker bridge. There are also many historic sites from the Cold War period nearby. The very rewarding castle park invites you to go for a walk.

    Beautiful Pückler Park with always great views. You do not have to go to the castle, just enjoy its sight.

    The castle is well worth seeing, but unfortunately closed at the moment. There are several buildings in the park, but the park itself is beautiful.

    Pückler has created this beautiful park and the castle is enthroned in the middle. Numerous paths and trails are available for you to relax and new perspectives are always opening up.

    A beautiful castle on the side of which there is also a snack with drinks, salad and cake in summer. There are also free sanitary facilities outside the castle. The great view from up here is also worth mentioning.

    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.

    Interesting building. Here the question arises, how did you bring the food warm from the castle kitchen to the castle back then?

    On a circular route, the dimension of the castle and the playful architecture of the turrets and oriels are best explored.

    A must when you are in Potsdam. From the castle you have a good view of the Glienicke Bridge.
