Potsdam Babelsberg Castle

Potsdam Babelsberg Castle


Summer residence of the imperial couple

Just like the Babelsberg Park around the neo-Gothic building, the Babelsberg Palace in Potsdam was built from 1833 for the Prussian Prince Wilhelm and his wife Augusta of Saxony-Weimar. In their function as imperial and royal couple, they regularly used Babelsberg Palace as their summer residence. The stately mansion is considered a classic Prussian palace, reflecting the era of Wilhelm I. In 2016, Potsdam’s Babelsberg Palace was comprehensively restored and, in particular, the facade of the palace and the ornate terraced grounds were extensively restored. The garden architect’s goal was for these to look like “palace rooms in the open air”.
