Writer, globetrotter and landscape artists all in one: Prince Fürst von Pückler-Muskau commenced landscaping the Branitz Park near Cottbus in 1845. Entwined paths, vast and flat surfaces and artificial lakes characterise the park´s physical appearance. In contrast to this, the park also captivates the eye with architectural highlights by offering visitors interesting and unobstructed views of the palace and various other park elements. The garden is considered a masterpiece among the German landscape parks created in the 19th century. The buildings of the palace, the “Cavalierhaus” and royal stables (“Marstall”) harmoniously blend with the garden landscape. Permanent exhibitions in the historic palace rooms provide insight into the life and work of Prince Pückler-Muskau. The landscaping work continued after the prince’s death in 1871. The garden was finally completed in 1888. The tomb of the prince is also situated here, namely in the twelve-metre earth pyramid, which offers visitors an impressive sight.
