Located in the midst of the extravagant Prussian architecture and horticulture of Potsdam, the best views are offered 100 metres up from the top of the Pfingstberg. The historic ensemble of the Belvedere Palace, the Temple of Pomona, and the palace gardens belongs to SPSG, the "Prussian Palaces and Gardens Foundation Berlin-Brandenburg", and is a part of the palaces and parks of Potsdam and Berlin that have been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

With the Belvedere, King Friedrich Wilhelm IV of Prussia realised his romantic dream of building a palace that enjoys what are indisputably the best views of Potsdam and the Havel lakes all the way over to Berlin in the east. The 1847 to 1863-built romantic-classical castle radiates a unique atmosphere of peace and grandeur with its arcade, Colonnade, galleries, and the two towers.

Immersing yourself in the varied history of Pfingstberg promises exciting entertainment: A "royal dream" in the Prussian era, the Belvedere deteriorated during the Cold War due to its proximity and the view of the inner-German borders almost to the foundations. In addition, it was located in the military town No. 7, the seat of the Soviet anti-espionage SMERSCH, until the fall of the wall. Due to the commitment of a young Potsdamer in the late 1980s and the founding of the Pfingstberg Association, it will be rebuilt in the 1990s and 2000s.

You can experience the genesis and the recent history of the Pfingstberg ensemble in audio guides for children and adults as well as in a multimedia permanent exhibition.
