The 67 hectare Peacock Island, which Frederick William II acquired in 1793, is distinguished by its landscaped garden design, as well as a tree population of approximately 400, exceptionally old, picturesque oaks.
Johann August Eyserbeck, Peter Joseph Lenné, and Anton Ferdinand Fintelmann accentuated the best advantages of the island by creating guided paths and wooded copses. The white palace, built in 1794, is visible from quite a distance and is characterized by its towers and their connecting bridge. From here, the extensive view meanders over the Havel River toward Glienicke, toward the New Garden and toward Sacrow, as well as to the white ruins of the dairy, the aviary, and a pond called the Wasservogelteich at the center of the island.
Opposite the earliest rose garden in Prussia, which was restored in 1989, stone pedestals and leafy foliage in historical arrangements are reminiscent of the House of Palms that was destroyed by a fire in 1881.
