Long Description:

Friendship Island is Potsdam’s most popular inner-city park and next to the Botanical Garden, the Sculpture Garden is the island’s main attraction. 25 modern sculptures, created between 1949 and 2003 are placed across the island, making a walk in this park a truly remarkable experience.

Here are some of the pictures we took enjoying the sculptures:

The metal "Bird" and "Fish" move in the wind. They were created in 2001 by three professional artist and students from two local schools.

There are no "Do not touch" signs and playing with the sculptures is encouraged, which obviously made one little boy very happy:



"Miracle" is a moving sculpture and we tried to catch the motion

Take the Tour

In addition to the pictures we took, we’d like to give you the complete tour. There is a good website about the park, but unfortunately, it is in German. Below, we took the pictures from that site and translated the sculpture’s names to the best of our knowledge.
