Bike Touring Highlight
The manor Gross Glienicke was a mansion built in the late Middle Ages at the northern end of the Great Glienicke Lake, which since the first mention in the year 1375 was owned by several noble families of the Marrakis. Until 1788, Ribbeck's family lived on the estate, starting with Georg von Ribbeck, who acquired it in 1572. After the death of the last owners, the couple Otto and Dorothea Wollank, the manor was abandoned because of his debt in 1938. The mansion burned down in 1945, while the listed Gutspark Gross Glienicke is still partially preserved.

The Gutspark Groß Glienicke is a landscape park originally belonging to the manor Groß Glienicke at the northern end of the Groß Glienicker See. He was probably created in 1847/48 as Gutspark the mansion. This burned down in 1945. Since December 10, 2004, the Gutspark, together with the Potsdamer Tor, the walls, wells and the grave of the family Wollank is a listed building.The Gutspark remained intact in its original form until the post-war period. Due to the demarcation and installation of the death strip after 1961, the park was divided into two parts and partially destroyed. On the West Berlin side, a permanent camping site was created, while the trees on the western territory of the GDR remained untouched within the exclusion zone for decades. Today, a section of the wall on the banks of the Great Glienicke Lake reminds of the division.Source:
