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.

Situated between the Kladow ferry landing stage and the Sacrow palace garden, visitors can stroll among roses or on meadows, explore small woods, walk along the Havel and enjoy the view of Peacock Island. In addition, watercourses, ponds, a kitchen garden and a tea house invite visitors to linger. Incidentally, the cycle and hiking path from Alt-Kladow to Sacrow passes directly by the garden gate.

From April to the end of October, the sunny terrace of the summer café in the park invites you to enjoy coffee and cake or a cool beer. It is open from Friday to Sunday and on public holidays from 10:00 to 18:00.

You can reach the Landhausgarten via the Berlin Wall Trail and the Haveluferwanderweg, which is also connected to the European Cycle Route. From the water, guests can even land right next to the property. Motorboat tourists can take a relaxed stroll from the public harbour at Imchenplatz to Dr. Fraenkel.
