Flatow Tower in Babelsberg Park

The Flatow Tower of Babelsberg Park was built between 1853 and 1856 according to plans by the German architect Johann Heinrich Strack who modelled it on a medieval tower of the Eschenheimer Tor (gate tower) in Frankfurt am Main. Emperor William I thus preserved the longstanding Potsdam tradition of building architecture at prominent locations for the purpose of overlooking the scenic landscape. The neo-Gothic overlook-tower, measuring a height of 46 metres, stands amidst a pool, which is of importance in itself for watering the park. The emperor and empress utilised the building both as guesthouse and safekeeping facility for collectibles they were passionate about. Visitors of this landmark of Babelsberg Park - easily spotted from a distance - cannot just discover the original rooms, but gaze at the exceptional landscape surrounding the tower.
