    Nice park. You can spend a lot of time in it or just go through it. The many structures and lines of sight to the structures are interesting. That gives a lot of great effects. There is also an official swimming area below on the Havel. There are also bathing in many other places.

    The Babelsberg Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is located northeast of the city center of Potsdam in the Babelsberg district, bordering the Tiefen See of the Havel and the Glienicker See. It is around 124 hectares in size. The hilly terrain sloping down to the lake as a park landscape was designed first by the garden architect Peter Joseph Lenné, then Prince Hermann von Pückler-Muskau - both on behalf of Prince Wilhelm (later: Kaiser Wilhelm I) and his wife Augusta......The northernmost part of the park was cut deepest by the construction of the Berlin Wall in 1961. The banks at Glienicker Lake and the Teltow Canal were separated from the park by extensive border security systems and the riverside path could no longer be accessed by the public.The park has been fully accessible again since the fall of the Berlin Wall. The site was managed by the Prussian Palaces and Gardens Foundation Berlin-Brandenburg (SPSG), which is gradually reconstructing the park according to the original plans by Pückler and Lenné. The majority of the buildings erected in the park during the GDR era were demolished.The buildings and the jetty of the motorboat club at the southwest end of the park are also to be dismantled by 2021. The neighboring lido is then to be moved to this area and the current area of the lido is to be restored in terms of monument preservation, including the historical route.Source: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Park_Babelsberg

    Nice well-kept park. Unfortunately, the number of cyclists who also use the trails is increasing.

    Babelsberger Park is always ideal for a hike or a run. Very nice ensemble with castle and Flatow tower.

    Great park, but there are a lot of cyclists on the main paths - so be careful if you want to change sides spontaneously.
