Krongut Bornstedt | ‘Italian Village’ in Potsdam
The picturesque ‘Italian Village,’ affectionately named by King Friedrich Wilhelm IV, is located in the north of Potsdam, not far from the Sanssouci Park. This enchanting place, once the country estate of the Prussian nobility, is now a unique example of Italian architecture that characterizes Krongut.
After extensive restoration in 2002, Krongut shines again in its old glory. Visitors can admire the Hof-Brauhaus and experience firsthand the brewing and distilling tradition dating back to 1689. The freshly brewed beer named ‘Bornstedter Büffel,’ accompanied by traditional Märkisch dishes, promises a culinary delight. The Royal Court Bakery, Café Victoria, and the Weinscheune Habel also invite you to linger and enjoy.
Strengthened and refreshed, visitors can rediscover old craftsmanship in the Brandenburg Manufaktur. Here, you have the unique opportunity to watch craftsmen of various disciplines fascinatingly at work.
The ‘Italian Village’ and the charming Krongut are places that bring the past to life and enchant visitors with their picturesque beauty and historical significance. A visit is a journey into the history of Brandenburg and an unforgettable experience for the senses.
