in the Concert and Ball Rooms are pictures by Guido Reni, 
Luca Giordano, Vanloo and others. About 15 minutes from 
the new Palace to the South is the Wildpark Station. 
At the Railway Station in Potsdam on the Lange Brucke 
there are always boats going to Babelsberg. The traveller 
may reach the place on foot by going from the Station 
through the Alte Konigstrasse in the Teltow suburb to 
Nowawes, the Wilhelmstrasse, then to the left post the 
Waisenkirchhof into the Royal Park of Babelsberg. This 
beautiful park is the property of the Emperor but is however 
always open; the porter residing at the entrance will give 
the visitor a guide thorough the park if he desires one. 
The Castle of Babelsberg was built by Persius in 1835 after 
plans by Schinkel and enlarged in 1848. From the towers 
and balconies the spectator has a beautiful view of the large 
Havel lake, the neighboring hills, Potsdam, Sans-souci, and 
the surrounding scenery. The interior of the castle contains 
many works of art, curiosities and relics of various wars, 
also paintings by Hummel, Harrach, Bleibtreu, Dannhauser, 
Spangenberg, 77/. Hildebrandt and others. 
At the left bank of the Havel, a half hour further and 
one hour from Potsdam on the highway at Klein Glienicke (a 
village with restaurant), lies a castle with a handsome park, the 
property of the heirs of Prince Friedrich Charles; for entrance

out and presents numerous picturesque views of the environs. 
Not far from Klein Glienicke on the other side of the high 
way is the Bottchers-Berg with a Loggia built by Gilli, and 
a fine panorama; charming views all around at the foot of 
the hill is an old hunting lodge of the Great Elector. 
On the right lank of the Havel between Glienicke and 
the Pfaueninsel lies the small village of Sacrow, with a res 
taurant on the river, a small basilica and a church. On the 
way to the Pfaueninsel is the pretty forest-house Moorlake 
with restaurant. From here a woody path leads to Nicolskoe 
with restaurant, here is also a church built in old Russian
