A Dutch wind and cutting mill once ran, where today the Flatow Tower stands enthroned on one of the many beautiful green hills of Babelsberg Park. The mill burnt down in 1848. Inits stead, the 46 meter high Flatow Tower was erected and served as a viewpoint and guest apartment.

The tower surrounding star-shaped moat could be crossed over a drawbridge, which is no longer preserved. Heinrich Strack planned the neo-Gothic building in the style of the medieval tower of the Eschenheim Gate in Frankfurt Main. Emperor Wilhelm I. thus continued the tradition of erecting panoramic buildings at outstanding places. The tower is named after the manor Flatow in West Prussia owned by Wilhelm I. The manors profits were used to finance the building of the tower. After World War II. the tower was strongly damaged and its restorations lasted until 1986.

Next to in part originally furbished rooms, you can enjoy a unique view during a visit of the tower.

From the upper surrounding platform there are vistas to other outstanding buildings in Potsdam, such as the Belvedere on Pfingstberg Hill or the dome of the Marble House in the New Garden.
