Pyramide, Potsdam

Pyramide, Potsdam

One of the many interesting constructions in the New Garden, the Pyramid served not only as an architectural monument but as an ice cellar. Built in 1792, the cellar kept food fresh and was essentially an early-model refrigerator. During the winter, ice from the frozen lake was taken and stored on the floor of the cellar to keep things cool year-round.
