New garden : Michelin's recommendations
The garden was laid out around a lake in the late 18C for Friedrich Wilhelm II, who was very keen on English gardens. The grounds were later bequeathed to the last heir prince (1882-1951) and his wife, Cecilia of Mecklembourg-Schwerin. The garden is scattered with small buildings (the Holländisches Etablissement which were the servants' quarters; the Orangery hidden behind a house (Damenhaus) and set in a pretty garden; the Pyramid which was originally an ice-house; the kitchens, disguised as an Antique ruin just next to the Marble Palace). The Marmopalais was the summer residence of Friedrich Wilhelm II and it was one of the first neo-Classical buildings in the region. The richly furnished royal apartments are open to the public. The concert hall commands three splendid views overlooking the lake. To the north of the lake on the banks of the Havel (Quapphorn), the view extends from the square bell-tower of Sacrow Church hidden in the greenery as far as the park of Klein-Glienicke (casino and Glienicke Bridge) and the telecommunications tower of the Schäferberg.
