Fantasy place

Belvedere - is a building on an high place, allowing you to view the surroundings. As a rule, it is built over a place that can be considered as beautiful for an observer from this place. This word can be applied to a couple of other cases, but let us stop specifically on this one... So, this Belvedere is incredibly beautiful. The building itself is located on the highest point of the park, on a hill, and is surrounded by tall bushes and trees. Inside is a large square pool. During the day you can walk around and have picnics. There are also night events here. For example as I saw in the photos, they arrange here some light and illumination performances.

The Belveder is worth visiting for the view offered from this balcony on to Sanssouci park.

The structure of the buiding clearly indicate that it has been designed as a balcony to view the surrounding park.

Beautiful view of Potsdam
Aug 2019
A UNESCO World Heritage site, so a must see!
A lovely short walk through a small park, though upwards, but the view from the top makes it all worth while.
History again making it's mark here. Plenty to see and admire from times gone past. Prussian plus more.
There's an entrance fee, audio guide, or you can have a guided tour. You can also get combined tickets for Cecilienhof or Alexandrowka. Check out the website

Cool castle!
Apr 2019 • Family
Excellent find! Easy to access from Potsdam either by bus or tram. Bit of a steep incline to walk to, so bare in mind if waking difficulties. With this in mind, definitely worth the walk and visit! Amazing castle and good price at only €4.50 per adult. Some excellent views and architecture on show. Beautiful reconstruction that has been kept very close to the original after various damage.

This place surely needs some renovation and additional cleaning. Great view from the top and interesting decorations inside rooms, unfortunately damaged.

The best overview for Potsdam and the historic places of prussia
Jun 2017 • Family
This hidden place is not very well known to foreign travelers. They are guided to the average places like Sanssouci and so on. But this spot offers you an orientating overview on all interesting spots of Prussian architectual history (when the wether is clear) and the later development. You can see from here (top of the towers) nearly all of the castles and the important places of the Prussian kings but also the important spots in history between 1945 and today. By the way, the Belvedere offers a nice romantic room to marry there. And many celebrities already does so.
