  • The palace is quite large, but unfurnished. The grounds are very attractive. Important for its historical significance, but not as interesting as some of the older buildings.

  • Well organized, historical museum. There's lots to learn about the immediate period after WW2, and doing so on site is a lot of fun. You need to buy a ticket to enter which I think is around ten euro. If you don't want to pay, the architecture is nice to look at from the outside and the facility is in the middle of a beautiful park near a lot of lakes.
  • The site of the famous Potsdam Conference¬†(July 17 - August 2, 1945) - an event that drew the BIG THREE together to negotiate terms for the end of World War II and defined Germany's history for the following 45 years. With this historic insights, imagine what it feels like when you are there
  • Highly impressive! Well made audio-guides have been available. If you want to get in touch with history - go there and see.
  • It was a holiday so I couldn't go inside. The exterior of the building was also very nice. It felt different because it was the site of the Potsdam Conference.
  • At first glance, it seemed like a normal palace but it holds a dual history. One of the kings before the fall of the empires and other the after WW2 history. Many historical figures lived here who decided the aftermath of the world after WW2. It's the iconic conference venue of the conference. Around this you have an excellent beautiful garden. Wonderful lake. Nearby other palaces. Overall it's a must visit place. You can be part of WW2 history.
