  • 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.

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".

  • Great tour that covers the events surrounding the historic Potsdam conference in a lot of detail. Tour guide was happy to give the downstairs tour about the conference in English if needed, but the upstairs tour of royal apartments is apparently only available in German. Be warned they attempt to charge you extra for a “photography license” at the ticket desk if you want to take pictures... but adherence is not strictly enforced.
  • Do not be fooled by this building’s humble looks and lesser renown; it is unfairly overshadowed by Sanssouci. This place is definitely worth a visit as it was where history was made. There could have been more about the agreement, though.
  • Wonderful historic location. Wonderfully maintained
  • Amazing, totally worth the €8 for the tour, some truly fascinating information and history, a must for any WW2 history lovers.
  • went on a school trip there, great place, quiet, loads of information
