  • Necessarily a guide the Chambers look at and can be enchanted by the charm of the architecture and the training and insights. In addition there still history lesson about the Potsdam Agreement.

  • Here, Truman, Churchill, and Stalin sat together in the Conference room. The English-style building is also a gem already externally. Should you necessarily see. A few meters further is located on the water of the "old dairy" with beer garden. Here it is worth a detour

  • Courtyard and surrounding in the repair looks well because he didn't know it was a little disappointing. From Berlin arrived by car in about 40 minutes. € With Japan-language audio guide in 6, so will elaborate more deeper understanding. It could also be because it wasn't so much people immediately after the open to visit family. As soon as I entered the room of the Potsdam Conference (one woman who will come) is very quaint «here?... "and was impressed. € 3 photography is OK, pay and arm on wrist band marks. I wanted to see on the second floor, has abandoned the tour of Germany, and the time is because. I can feel the history and is a very good place.

  • It was the Hohenzollern family residence after they lost the crown. 1945 Potsdam Conference took place here. Now is a first-class hotel.
  • Schloss Cecilienhof is the site of the Potsdam Conference, a major gathering of world superpowers at the end of World War II. It is named after Duchess Cecillie, wife of the Crown Prince of Prussia, who lived there for a while when it was completed. Not much pictures to show, as you can’t take photographs inside Cecilienhof. It’s now a museum which preserves the historical significance of this palace in World War II history. The Potsdam Conference setup remains preserved, including the roundtable that hosted the negotiations. It was pretty surreal walking through Cecilienhof and imagining myself in the midst of that conference, standing in the corner while the most powerful leaders of the time, Churchill, Truman and Stalin discussa post-war world.
  • Currently undergoing major renovation, the last palace built for the crown prince before the revolution and the site of the Potsdam Conference at the end of WWII. Both receive the museum treatment here along with a lovely hotel.
  • Here was completed a great desicion in our common history - it needs to visit !
  • Pretty, beautiful and amazing are not enough to describe this place. It is worth a visit if you're intrested in History and even if you are not the landscape is breathtaking.
