The Glienicke Palace Park is a jewel in Potsdam-Berlin's UNESCO cultural landscape: when Prince Carl of Prussia returned to Berlin from his first trip to Italy, he decided to realise his dream of an Italian villa in a southern-looking landscape. Furnished in an Italian style with original antiques and picturesquely staged by Peter Joseph Lenné in the English manner on the banks of the Havel, the park and palace are still a place of inspiring harmony.
At the start of the season, Glienicke Palace and Park opens its doors once again. Springtime discoveries include a look at the nursery, the orangery and the casino. Prince Carl had the latter built in a charming location on the banks of the Jungfernsee in 1824 according to plans by Karl Friedrich Schinkel. With its view of the Havel and its wide arcades, the casino is an impressive building in Potsdam's cultural landscape.
Go on a springtime discovery with the experts of the palace area.
