Country house garden of Dr. Max Fränkel

Garden along the River Havel

Why the garden architect Erwin Barth is referred to as the “Lenné of the 20th century” can be seen in Kladow. In 1925–1933, Barth designed a garden paradise for Dr. Max Fränkel. This is now open to the public.

The garden is situated between the Kladow ferry terminal and the Sacrow palace gardens. Visitors can stroll through the roses or meadows, walk along the River Havel, and enjoy the view of Pfaueninsel (Peacock Island). There are also inviting watercourses and ponds as well as a vegetable garden and a tea house. The bicycle and hiking trail from Alt-Kladow to Sacrow leads right past the gates. The park also features a visitor centre and a summer café.
