For a tranquil escape with superb views, plenty of walking paths, and a charming castle, head to Babelsberg Park.

Half a day is ideal for exploring this fascinating park. Interesting paths with plenty of benches along the way, invite you to take a stroll and absorb the wonderful landscape.

Babelsberg Park is situated in Potsdam on a modest hill sloping to the banks of the Havel river. It offers an excellent vantage point for viewing Glienicke Bridge and Glienicke Palace Park.

Richly decorated garden terraces with sculptures, formal flower beds, ornamentals, and water features enhance the beauty surrounding the neo-Gothic Babelsberg Palace sitting near the center of the park. The Palace, built in 1833 for Prince Wilhelm who later became Kaiser Wilhelm I, is closed for restoration but should reopen soon.

Babelsberg Park is part of a larger UNESCO World Heritage Site and is preserved as a garden monument.

After the fall of the Berlin Wall, segments of the northern bank damaged by border installations were restored.

Landmarks to look for during your walk through the park include the Small Palace and Steam Engine Building on the Havel, Flatowturm Tower, Court Bower, Marstall and the Sailor House. Additional monuments commemorate military achievements of the Prussian Prince.

Babelsberg Park is an excellent place to unwind in an environment that has changed little over nearly two centuries.
