Pfingstberg Belvedere walkway

A covered, colonnaded walkway combines a cloister-like ambiance with panoramic views.

From a room high in the Belvedere, a spiral staircase leads to the rooftop observation deck.


Pfingstberg panoramic view

On a clear day, you can see for miles--or for kilometers, if you're a metric sort of person. Even on a gloomy day in march, I could see the Havel River and its lakes in the distance.


spiral stairs

If it's raining (as it was during my visit), watch your step as you descend the wet but textured spiral staircase, and don't be put off by the surface rust.

From the room beneath the observation deck, you can return to ground level on wide stone stairs.
