Schloss Glienicke (château de Glienicke)

Un rêve italien

Le château de Glienicke est fermé pour le moment. Le parc est accessible.

Italy had had an effect on the young prince. Charles de Prusse, then 21 years old, returned from his first big trip in 1823 with only one dream in mind: he wanted to live in an Italian villa, with a landscape evoking the South. And it was here, in the heart of the "märkische Streusandbüchse". Glienicke's estate suited him perfectly. This is how the architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel built at the request of the prince, from 1825, the initial building of a summer residence - naturally "antique", with clear divisions, balanced and proportioned. Italian inspirations are everywhere, for example the large fountain and its golden lions found in an installation at the Villa Medici in Rome. Glienicke Park is also wonderfully landscaped. It is decorated with numerous small buildings concealing totally facetious details. In the tea pavilion "Kleine Neugierde", the prince had, for example, had antique mosaics from Carthage laid. And the casino terrace, also designed by Schinkel, is constructed so that one enjoys a superb view of Havel, the "Gulf of Potsdam". From there, you can also see the Glienicker Brücke which directly behind the castle, crosses the Havel and links Berlin to Potsdam. During the Cold War, half of the bridge belonged to West Berlin and the other half to the GDR. It is known worldwide as a place for the exchange of spies.
