About the City

Without any doubt, Potsdam is one of the most beautiful cities in Germany. Integrated into the attractive cultural ambience, the capital city of the State of Brandenburg is a natural destination to satisfy the most varied interests and demands.

Potsdam 's most popular sight is the Schloß Sanssouci palace located in the park to which it gives its name. However, there are far more than the former summer residency of Frederick the Great and the Sanssouci park to make your visit worthwhile. The Alexandrowka, the Holländisches Viertel (the Dutch quarter) and the Weaver's quarter - the historic sections of the city - provide the flair of a city steeped in European tradition.

The Babelsberg Filmpark, the Biosphäre nature experience exhibition, the National Horticulture Show park, known as the BUGA park, built for the National Horticulture Show in 2001, the tourist cruise ships and the crown estate, the Krongut Bornstedt, are all special attractions which will make your visit to Potsdam a very pleasurable experience.

Over the past years a modern tourism infrastructure has been developed to fulfil every wish and requirement. Modern hotels and guest houses, as well as private rooms allow our guests to feel easily at home.
