Beautiful for Picknick in the garden and great walk also sometimes with a great castle night tour.
Prussian palaces in original form and style, amazing gardens around the palaces to enjoy in all times of the year.
This Palace is in Potsdam, a 45min S Bahn ride outside of Berlin. Take at least a day to explore the area for its beautiful parks and lakes.

“o the north of Bassinplatz lies the famous Dutch Quarter, the Holländisches Viertel, with 134 lovely red brick houses graced by shuttered windows, gables, and white trim. Built between 1737 and 1742 by Dutch craftsmen, the community is the largest collection of Dutch-style homes outside of the Netherlands. Covering four city blocks, it's as popular with tourists as it is locals, who flock here for its numerous boutique shops, quaint cafés, and restaurants. Anticipate spending a few hours exploring the area, especially if you take in Johann Boumann House, a museum dedicated to the architect who led this remarkable 18th-century building project. An easy stroll leads to the Brandenburger Strass”
“The Bar Fritz'n is one of the fancier places to go. The have signature cocktails, mixed by the a very polite and well-informed staff. Moscow Mule would be EUR 8 to give you an idea.”
“One of the more interesting of the many other buildings found in Neuer Garten is Schloss Cecilienhof. Built between 1914-17 in the style of an English Tudor country house, Cecilienhof is most famous as the meeting place of the Potsdam Conference of July-August, 1945, between the US (Truman), the UK (Churchill), and the USSR (Stalin) at the end of WWII. The building is wonderfully preserved in the state it was in during the conference - including the main conference room itself - and many artifacts remain in place, along with displays detailing the event and its significance. Other highlights include the obelisk in the courtyard and the property's lovely gardens.”
“Here you've got all important shops concentrated in one street. In the beginning you've got the small version of the Brandenburger Tor and in the end of the street the church of Potsdam”
