Berlin Sights

Park Babelsberg

  • Castle/Palace/Chateau

Fodor's Review

Less well known than the gleaming Sans Souci but still impressive, this palace was once the summer palace of Wilhelm I. This expansive park surrounding the Babelsberg castle offers acres and acres of charm, with expansive views, a wraparound waterfront promenade, and, of course, enough historical buildings to entice even the most jaded traveler. Although the Schloss (castle) itself is currently under extensive renovation, there's still plenty to explore, such as the Dampfmachinenhaus,

a 19th-century steam engine building right on the water, or the Kleines Schloss, which literally translates into “small castle” and today houses an elegant wood-paneled café. Climb the Flatowturm (“Flatow Tower”) for a 360-degree view of the surrounding parklands and waterways, and the city of Potsdam in the distance.
