Emperor William I’s Summer Residence
Open during special events
This house is open during special events.
Babelsberg Palace was built in 1833 as a summer residence for Crown Prince William – later Emperor William I. Karl Friedrich Schinkel drafted plans for a palace in a neo-Gothic style while drawing inspiration from English Tudor architecture.
The architects Ludwig Persius and Johann Heinrich Strack later modified Schinkel’s concept during the palace’s expansion. The original interior décor has been partially preserved, and also exhibits a predominantly neo-Gothic style.
Peter Joseph Lenné and Prince Hermann von Pückler-Muskau modeled the expansive Babelsberg Park on English landscape gardens.
