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.

  • We booked the tickets online which is a time stamped ticket. The garden is free but the ticket is needed to go inside the palace. There are half day tours from Berlin but we chose to do it independent...  more »
  • Very nice if not too hot. The view from the Palace grounds. You can stroll amidst the trees and fountain. October begins and it delcht adds beauty.

  • For motorists are conditionally free and paid parking is available nearby (2 *). The gardens are not crowded (at least in the early afternoon during the Woche)(5*), offer a nice rest for a walk (5 *) and surprisingly much of the eye (5 *).) Unfortunately, there is no way to buy a drink or a snack. My overall rating: 3.7 *.
