Pfingstberg-Belvedere and the "Temple of Pomona"

View from the Belvedere to the Peacock island

The Belvedere offers the best view onto the city and all the surrounding countryside – if the weather is good, you can even see the Berlin TV tower at the Alexanderplatz! It is one of the most romantic places of the city and you should discover it alone or twosome.

The palace was build in the 19th century and turned into a ruin during GDR-times. With a lot of dedication a group of Potsdam citizens conserved the building since 1988. In 2003 the reconstruction of the Belvedere was successfully completed and during the summer a lot of cultural events take place between the two towers above the city.

In front of the palace stands the small „Temple of Pomona“ - the first building designed and erected by Karl Friedrich Schinkel, who was the most influential Prussian architect.

A walk to the 74 meter high summit of the Pfingstberg hill is really worth it!

Highlight: Free open air concerts every Saturday and Sunday at 3 pm from may to september under the motto „Culture in nature“ - and the great view, naturally!
