Visit Potsdam in 2024

Potsdam is not just a city, but an experience. It's the capital of the German state of Brandenburg and is most famous for its exquisite palaces and beautifully landscaped gardens, the majority of which are part of the Potsdam-Sanssouci ensemble that is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list. It is often called "Germany's Versailles," and for a good reason. The elegance of Sanssouci Palace and the grandeur of the New Palace can leave anyone spellbound.
In addition to its royal residences, Potsdam is a city of great historical significance. It played host to the Potsdam Conference after World War II, where leaders of the Allied powers convened. The Dutch Quarter and Russian colony, Alexandrowka, reflect Potsdam's international character. Moreover, the city is a hub for science and research with institutions like the University of Potsdam and various Max Planck Institutes located here.
Waterways lace the city, and numerous lakes and the River Havel provide scenic locations for leisure activities. The old market square is a lively place, where you can appreciate Prussian Classicist architecture while savoring some local food.
