The Glory of Kings and Kaisers
Potsdam holds a pivotal place in German history. The country’s largest UNESCO World Heritage Site – Park Sanssouci – stands testament to the wealth of the kings and kaisers who once held court there. Yellow Sanssouci Palace is somewhat overshadowed by stepped gardens leading up to it from a fountain. A long path leads off at a right angle to the red-coloured New Palace, adorned with statues and a green dome.
Nestled in the intermediate grounds are the Italianate Roman Baths and Orangery, and understated Charlottenhof Palace. Trees hide the botanical gardens, while the gaudy gold Chinese tea house is unmissable. The park even has a grand train station and Dutch-style windmill.
Red gabled houses line the Dutch Quarter, and wooden houses characterise the Russian colony Alexandrowka. One of the city Christmas markets is in Weberviertel amid former homes of Bohemian weavers. Nearby, Filmpark Babelsberg is the world’s oldest film studio and Babelsberg Palace was a royal summer retreat.
In the New Garden by 2 of the city’s many lakes is half-timbered Cecilienhof Palace, where the historic, post-war conference between Churchill, Truman and Stalin led to the Potsdam Agreement and Declaration which shaped the face of Europe.
