The "Natte Werder" (wet island) goes back to the efforts of the Great Elector Friedrich Wilhelm to cultivate tracts of land in the immediate vicinity of Potsdam for an economic recovery. The marshy lowland at Golm Luch became part of this change.

After the Thirty Years´ War, the Great Elector tried to recruit colonists who would help to revitalize the depopulated country.

Growing social tensions in the Canton of Bern, especially among the rural population, gave the Great Elector the occasion to renew his request to the village mayor and to the town council of Bern for sending "10 to 20 families well experienced in farming and animal husbandry" in 1683. So, in 1685, 14 farming families, a total of 101 people, from the Bern/Aarau region moved to Kurbrandenburg. The Swiss colonists were supposed to drain the Golmer Luch. The Great Elector had a church built at his own expense for the German-Reformed colonist community in Nattwerder, that was inaugurated on November 16, 1690. The church has been preserved to this day. In the cemetery the graves of the Swiss families are right next to the church. Today the village has about 40 inhabitants, including some descendants of Bernese immigrants. Whole Nattwerder is protected as a historic monument. The original layout of the village, planned by the Swiss colonists at the end of the 17th century, is fully recognizable, although the four farmsteads were destroyed by a lightning strike in 1867. The houses were re-erected reversely according to the original measurements. Since October 26, 2013, Nattwerder is part of Potsdam´s district of Grube.
