    The approximately 13 meter high "pyramid" is the landmark of the park created by the landscape architect Hermann Fürst von Pückler-Muskau (1785-1871). The lake pyramid has been the prince's burial site since 1871. In 1884, Princess Lucie von Pückler-Muskau (1776-1854) was relocated from the old Branitz village cemetery to the pyramid.

    From here, Prince Pückler's coffin should be taken to his final resting place by barge to the pyramid. This failed, however, as the lake was frozen. The ice was too thin to transfer rape. One therefore built a footbridge at the shortest connection and was thus able to perform the funeral. Today there is a bench here and you have a great view of the pyramid. With a little luck you will meet a local and historical older man, who can tell a lot about Pückler and the park to the gentle listener.

    As I learned from an elderly gentleman today, the coffins of Prince Pückler and his divorced wife Lucie are in the water pyramid. She was only in the land pyramid and was reburied 30 years after her death. Her remains fit into a children's coffin.

    The land pyramid is empty. Here Lucie, the divorced wife of Prince Pückler, was buried until her reburial.
