Neighborhood: Wannsee
Overview

The log cabin close to Pfaueninsel on the River Havel wasn't built by lumberjacks as you may have expected, but by a king. In 1819, King Friedrich Wilhelm III successfully married off his daughter to the Russian Tzar and when the imperial couple visited Berlin, Wilhelm presented them with Blockhaus Nikolskoe, a picturesque replica of a Russian farmhouse. The building was turned into a restaurant after the war, but burned down in 1984. The cabin was immediately reconstructed and is now a popular destination for day-trippers.
