  • At present partially integrated, the historic castle beautifully situated in a park between the Havel and the sacred Lake. The walk in the Park was still worth haven't had time for a visit to the inner. Even from the outside, the castle is especially, can it be just so in the Interior. It doesn't look like a typical Castle, but Potsdam is well known for a wide variety of architectures in the construction of the Castle.

  • Built in English style during the first world war, it was the Palace of the Crown Prince Wilhelm (1882-1951) and his wife Cecilia. Located in the Neuer Garten, also participated in the historic Potsdam Conference, attended by Stalin, Truman and Churchill in 1945 year. Inside the Palace you can visit the Princess Royal private apartments, including a bedroom, designed in the style of the yacht cabin, as well as meeting rooms, where the Potsdam Agreement was signed the year 1945.

  • In this Palace, now a hotel, from 17 July to 2 August 1945 reunited the three allied powers (United States, Russia and Britain) to decide the fate of Germany giving rise to what was then called the "Potsdam Declaration".

  • We had a nice tour of the Schloss, where the Potsdam conference was held. Has an interesting history that our Berlin guide detailed.
  • It was the Hohenzollern family residence after they lost the crown. 1945 Potsdam Conference took place here. Now is a first-class hotel.
  • 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.
  • 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.
