Potsdam Babelsberg Park

Potsdam Babelsberg Park


UNESCO World Heritage in Potsdam

The extensive Babeslberg Park in Potsdam was laid out around the neo-Gothic Babelsberg Palace starting in 1833. Responsible for the artistic design of the 124-hectare landscape park were two garden artists, who were personally commissioned by the later Kaiser Wilhelm I. During a tour of the picturesque park, the Pleasureground with its ornamental shrubs, flower gardens and water features catch the eye in addition to the magnificent garden terraces. Another absolute eye-catcher is the Flatow Tower, which was built in the mid-19th century on the model of the Escheinheim Gate in Frankfurt am Main. Due to its uniqueness, Babeslberg Park was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1990.
