Pfaueninsel - Peacock Island

The Pfaueninsel (Peacock Island) lies in the river Havel in Berlin. The little Pfaueninsel palace at its southern end was built for Prussian king Friedrich Wilhelm II. in 1794/95, according to a design by Johann Gottlieb Brendel. In the 19th century, the whole island was transformed into a landscape garden by Peter Joseph Lenné und Johann Anton Ferdinand Fintelmann. Even today, there are still many peacocks living on the island.
