    South of the village of Sacrow in Brandenburg stands the Heilandskirche on the Havel shore at the port of Sacrow, which juts out onto a headland into the river. The extraordinary church due to its location and style, simply called the "Savior's Church", was built in 1844 as a sacral building in the Italian style with a free-standing campanile (bell tower) after drawings designed by the "Romantic on the throne" Friedrich Wilhelm IV. The "architect of the king" Ludwig Persius, was commissioned to plan the building.The church is located about one hundred meters below the small Sacrower castle and is one of its castle park, which the garden artist Peter Joseph Lenné also remodeled extensively in the 1840s. Heilandskirche and castle were restored after the fall of the 1990s and are part of the Potsdam Havel landscape, which extends from the peacock island to Werder and stands with their castles and gardens as an ensemble since 1990 as a World Heritage Site under the protection of UNESCO. The picturesque village between Fontanes "Kulturstrom" Havel, which opens here to the Jungfernsee, the Sacrower lake and forests embedded village Sacrow belongs since 1939 to southwestern Potsdam. The "Fuchsberge" separate it from Kladow, a district of Berlin-Spandau, about three kilometers northeast.Since the restoration, the church is again a place for worship, concerts and church weddings.Source: This text is based on the article "Savior on the Port of Sacrow" from the free encyclopaedia Wikipedia and is under the GNU Free Documentation License.

    From the Heilandskiche you can look over the Glienicke Bridge and nearby is the Sacrow Castle.

    If you want to visit the church should take a jacket on cooler days, because it can be quite windy at this corner.

    The church MUST be seen. In the church there are a few beautiful postcards and a small well-illustrated guide with many exceptions from the time BEFORE the renovation and BEFORE the turn. Moving place!

    A nice secluded place where you can go swimming. However, one must be aware that there is nothing here except toilets in the nearby castle.

    Why are churches still needed in one of the most unbelieving areas of the country? If they are as beautiful as the Sacrow Savior Church: to unbelievable celestiality.

    A small architectural gem surrounded by park. You have a wide view over Havel, Glienicker Bridge and Potsdam.
