Babelsberg Palace was built according to plans by Karl Friedrich Schinkel in the charming hilly countryside on the Havel River in 1833, as a summer residence for the later Emperor William I and his wife Augusta. Inspired by Tudor style English models, Schinkel created the first neo-Gothic palace on the continent. Schinkel's concept was modified through later additions by Ludwig Persius and Johann Heinrich Strack. Few of the original furnishings and interior decorations, which were also predominantly in the neo-Gothic style, have survived. The extensive park was designed by Peter Joseph Lenné and Prince von Pückler-Muskau as an English landscape garden.

Closed due to reconstruction work.
