Schloss Babelsberg

Potsdam | Germany

About the Museum

Majestically, on the banks of the Havel River, Babelsberg Palace, built in the style of English Gothic Revival, sits enthroned. The castle and the park Babelsberg were built from 1833 for Prince Wilhelm of Prussia (later Emperor Wilhelm I) and his wife Princess Augusta of Saxe-Weimar. For more than fifty years, Babelsberg served as the summer residence of the later royal and imperial couple. Since 2016, the facade of the castle and the terraces have been restored to their former glory after extensive renovation. According to the garden architect Hermann Fürst von Pückler-Muskau, the five terraces surrounding the palace are supposed to look like "open-air castle spaces". For the first time in over 100 years, the water games around the castle can be experienced again from April to October.
