Potsdam's Gardens, Potsdam
(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.

  • Large garden with palaces, numerous sculptures, beautiful flowers and the old mill, which opened a restaurant. We walked around the garden the whole day!

  • There are different gardens, some English-style and other French style. Particularly the English, I like more because they give an appearance of more natural than the especially symmetrical French forest. For walks, great.
