(4.6/5 based on 2,400+ reviews on the web)
Churchill, Stalin, and Truman met at Potsdam's Gardens to decide how to establish post-war order at the end of the World War II. This area is renowned as a stellar example of design that combines fine architecture with a respect for the existing natural landscapes. Palaces and parks line the banks of the Havel river. The gardens often host important cultural, social, and political events. Covering more than 500 hectares (1,235 acres), this World Heritage site's 150 buildings were constructed between 1730 and 1916. Explore the vast green areas and architectural structures on foot or by bicycle. You can pick up a map at the visitor center.

  • Reach Potsdam is very easy, since a train from the Centre of Berlin takes you directly (take into account that must have a ticket or subscription for zones ABC). Beautiful walk through the gardens of Sans Souci Palace and see the Palace even outside. The center of Potsdam is small but very picturesque, full of shops. Would highly recommend visiting Dutch neighborhood (which is next to the Centre of Potsdam) and eat pasta in a few carts in the street: excellent quality for 3 euros the dish.

  • No words to describe this place. Second only to Versailles in the sculptures, because the gardens themselves are much more beautiful! Worth a and back to Berlin, don't think twice!

  • Beautiful gardens summer and autumn. A lot of walking but one of the most beautiful places in Germany.
