Where do you put prepositions in a sentence? (German)

I know this may sound stupid, but where would you, if you had a preposition, put it in a sentence? Like, let's say you had the phrase, "Wir schwimmen", and you wanted to add a preposition (that would make sense in the context of the sentence) to it. Where would you place it in the sentence? Is there a system, or is it different for every preposition?

You just put them in the predicate, i.e. after the main verb. For instance: Ich gehe in den Park. / Wir sprechen ├╝ber ihn.

You can also reverse the order just like any other thing. The verbs should stay where they are. For instance: In Deutschland spricht man Deutsch. / Am Dienstag werde ich reisen.
