The Flatowturm (Flatow Tower) at Babelsberg Park was built from 1853 to 1856 for Kaiser Wilhelm I according to designs by Johann Heinrich Strack. The inspiration for this 46-metre tower in a New Gothic style was the medieval tower at the Eschenheimer Gate in Frankfurt am Main.
The royal couple used the building as a guesthouse but also to house their collections. Visitors have a unique view from the rooms, which feature some of the original furniture. The park can be seen from the tower in different sections and perspectives, which expand in a fan-like way the higher up you go. From the circumferential platform up top, visitors can enjoy a unique panorama view over the city and park landscape.
A permanent exhibition provides information on the tower's history, the history of Babelsberg Park and the landscape-design theme of "Sight".
