Potsdam Belvedere

Potsdam Belvedere


Viewpoint on Park Sanssouci

“Beautiful view” – the translation of the name “Belvedere” speaks for itself. As the first of the architecturally designed lookout points in the royal residential city of Potsdam, the Belvedere on the Klausberg was built in 1769. Frederick the Great wanted to use it to beautify Sanssouci Park after the completion of the New Palace. The impressive building has two floors and a dome and is modeled after Emperor Nero’s palace in Rome. From the Belvedere on the Klausberg, one has a unique view of Sanssouci Park, the hilly, lake-rich landscape and the city of Potsdam. After the destruction in 1945, the Belvedere was restored.
