Fodor's Expert Review Schloss Cecilienhof

Neuer Garten Castle/Palace/Chateau
Cecilienhof Palace, Neuer Garten, Potsdam, Berlin, Germany, Europe.

Resembling a rambling Tudor manor house, Schloss Cecilienhof was built for Crown Prince Wilhelm in 1913, on what was then the newly laid-out stretch of park called the Neuer Garten. It was here, in the last palace built by the Hohenzollerns, that the leaders of the allied forces–-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 Tram 92 to Reiterweg/Alleestrasse, then transfer to Bus 603 to Schloss Cecilienhof, or walk 15 minutes.
