Lenné’s Curves

Lennés Bögen

The talented Prussian garden designer and landscape architect Peter Joseph Lenné wove together the whole that is today the Unesco World Heritage Site of the palaces and parks of Potsdam and Berlin. His genius is obvious in Pfingstberg, where he used semi-circular arbours, snaking pathways and clever lines of sight to connect a monumental Italian-style palace, a Roman temple and other churches, palaces and islands in the broader landscape.
