Schloss Cecilienhof (Cecilienhof Palace)

  • Castle/Palace/Chateau

Updated 12/26/2013

Fodor's Review

Resembling a rambling, Tudor manor house, Schloss Cecilienhof was built for Crown Prince Wilhelm in 1913, on a newly laid-out stretch of park called the Neuer Garten (New Garden), which borders the Heiliger See. It was in this, the last palace to be built by the Hohenzollerns, that the Allied leaders Stalin, Truman, and Churchill (later Attlee) hammered out the fate of postwar Germany at the 1945 Potsdam Conference. From Potsdam's main train station, take a tram to Reiterweg/Alleestrasse, and then transfer to Bus 603 to Schloss Cecilienhof.
