A DIAMOND WITH MANY FACETS

A DIAMOND WITH MANY FACETS

Take your time to discover the most beautiful sites of Potsdam: the city vis-à-vis to Berlin has much to offer! Huge parts of the artwork Potsdam were honored with the title UNESCO-World Heritage.

First of all, there is the Potsdam with its Prussian monarchs who left behind magnificent castles and parks. Right in the middle of it: “Schloss Sanssouci” (Sanssouci Palace) with its English gardens, the summer residence of Friedrich the Great. Then there is the last palace of the Hohenzollern family, “Cecilienhof” in the Neuer Garten (New Gardens).

This is where the Allies came to the Potsdam agreement in 1945, an important event in European history. Last but not least, there is  “Schloss Babelsberg” (Babelsberg Palace) and Park that is famous for its magic lines of sight in a perfectly designed landscape.

Enjoy the most beautiful views over Potsdam’s castles and parks from the Panorama Towers on the hills Ruinenberg, Pfingstberg and from Babelsberg Park.

Another facet of the diamond is the historic city center. By foot you can discover streets, courts, baroque buildings, impressive churches and an entire “Holländisches Viertel” (Dutch Quarter). Around this area you will find many more “international“ sites that reveal a piece of the openness Potsdam is so famous for: the “Russische Kolonie” (Russian Colony) Alexandrowka, the Bohemian Weber Quarter, the Swiss Colonist Settlement “Nattwerder” as well as churches and villas with Italian flair.

Experience Potsdam from a different perspective, Potsdam – the isle right in the middle of the Havel river.

The river, its lakes and the inspiring, green landscape offer you heavenly leisure and water sport activities.
