Potsdam's Gardens, Potsdam

4.6
Churchill, Stalin, and Truman met at Potsdam's Gardens to decide how to establish post-war order at the end of the World War II. This area is renowned as a stellar example of design that combines fine architecture with a respect for the existing natural landscapes. Palaces and parks line the banks of the Havel river. The gardens often host important cultural, social, and political events. Covering more than 500 hectares (1,235 acres), this World Heritage site's 150 buildings were constructed between 1730 and 1916. Explore the vast green areas and architectural structures on foot or by bicycle. You can pick up a map at the visitor center.

  • Potsdam is the highlight of a Berlin visit, because the top sights are just a 45-minute drive from Central Berlin away. Very Sans Souci liked us, but also the Baroque ensemble of the University of Potsdam is masterful!

  • In winter tapan statues so loses 40% of charm and added that the gardens are withered. I was in a sunny day and it is worth even with the statues covered since it is majestic, but would recommend better another time if you can choose. There are long distances between palaces which is recommended for a quiet and relaxed day leisurely. If you can visit him... you do not repent. Eye! Do not ask for a map at the Tourist Office for charge €1 and not enlightened you nothing.
