Belvedere auf dem Pfingstberg information
For splendid views over Potsdam and surrounds, ascend the spiralling wrought-iron staircases of the twin-towered Belvedere pleasure palace, commissioned by Friedrich Wilhelm IV and modelled on an Italian Renaissance–style villa. There's a small exhibit chronicling the history of the building and the 1801 Pomonatempel just below it. The latter was Karl Friedrich Schinkel’s very first architectural commission at age 19.
