Heiliger See

The blue pearl of Potsdam

Its banks are covered in blossoms. Ducks quack, frogs croak. The Heiliger See (Holy Lake) lies quiet and peaceful in the evening sun. The lake with its 1.5 km length is a place for excursions, as popular now as it has ever been. Its combination of architecture and landscape gardening attracts walkers, anglers, divers, bathers and sun-worshippers alike and there are numerous unofficial bathing and relaxation points along the banks.
