Belvedere Pfingstberg

The Pfingstberg is crowned with one of the most beautiful magnificent buildings of the 19th century: the Belvedere Palace. It is also home to Schinkel's masterpiece, the Temple of Pomona, and a Lenné garden. From the castle towers, visitors can look out over the Havel lakes, the city of Potsdam and even Alexanderplatz. The Belvedere was built in 1847 by Frederick William IV. The architecture is mainly modelled on Italian buildings, including the Villa Medici in Rome and the Villa d'Este in Tivoli. After the king's death in 1863, his brother Wilhelm I completed a reduced version of the palace. During the division of Germany, the ensemble was left to decay due to its proximity to the inner-German border and the KGB town "No. 7". Exhibitions in the palace provide visitors with fascinating information about the history of the ensemble, and events can be enjoyed all year round.
