Babelsberg Park, Potsdam: 4 reviews and 15 photos
The engine pump house was built by Ludwig Persius between 1843 and 1845 to look like a medieval castle. It comes complete with towers to hide the chimney and battlements to hide its true purpose which was to pump the water for the various fountains in Babelsberg Park through 22km of pipes. During the cold war the pump house ended up in no man?s land and was allowed to fall into disrepair. The building which overlooks the Glienicke Lake is now being renovated.
