Tour 9 – Places on the Havel river influenced by geomancy (Feng Shui)  

description

Immerse yourself in the times of the Great Elector and his vision of a city of royal residence following the example of Amsterdam.
The magnificent palaces and park landscapes in Potsdam are no accident – feng shui was already known in Europe at the time (even if by another name, geomancy) and was a recognised discipline and basis for the planning of sites, buildings and gardens.
In this vein, The Great Elector commissioned his friend Johannes Moritz von Nassau-Siegen to geomantically survey a good place for his secondary residence in the neighbourhood of Berlin, thereby laving the foundations of the success story of Potsdam and Prussia.

The tour starts from

The Old Market – goes on to Brauhausberg or further cultural locations of the city such as the cultural center of Shipwright’s

Duration: approx 2-3 hours

Alley with its New Theatre.
