Sunday guided tour

With the Belvedere Pfingstberg, Frederick William IV wanted to fulfill his great "Italian dream" in Potsdam. Inspired by Roman architecture, an imposing viewing palace was created that remained a popular destination for Potsdam residents and Berliners until after World War II.

With the division of Germany after the war, the Pfingstberg ensemble suddenly found itself in the border area of the GDR and increasingly fell into disrepair. It was not until the commitment of young Potsdamers at the end of the 1980s that the unique complex began to be saved.

A member of the Förderverein Pfingstberg e.V. guides the guests through the eventful history of the Pfingstberg. Anecdotes, individual expertise and self-awareness around Karl Friedrich Schinkel's first work, the Pomonatempel, the Belvedere lookout palace built according to plans by Friedrich Wilhelm IV and the garden monument created by Peter Joseph Lenné are the focus of the tour.
