A European influenced City

The Potsdam Marketing and Service GmbH is your service partner for tourism in the Brandenburg state capital.

Without a doubt, Potsdam is one of the most beautiful cities in Germany. Embedded in a charming cultural landscape with palaces and historic gardens (part of the UNESCO World Heritage since 1990), the Brandenburg state capital is well worth a visit for diverse interests and demands.

Potsdam visitors have the opportunity to view twelve palaces during their exploratory city walks. On behalf of royal order, famous master builders such as von Knobelsdorff, Schinkel and Persius as well as notorious landscape architects like Lenné, Eyserbeck and Fürst von Pückler-Muskau designed the large architectural, horticultural diversity of Potsdam.   

Tourist attractions include the Sanssouci Palace – King Frederick the Great most loved palace – and Cecilienhof Palace, the historic site of the Potsdam Conference. Furthermore, the historic quarters of the Russian colony Alexandrovka, the Dutch Quarter with its red brick-lined building and the former Bohemian Weaver’s Quarter grant Potsdam an international flair within a European setting.

Additionally, Potsdam’s attractions such as the Filmpark Babelsberg, the Potsdam Biosphere, the public park Volkspark, Bornstedt Crown Estate and numerous boat rides turn everyone’s visit into an unforgettable experience. A Potsdam trip is rounded up with a visit to the Shipbuilder's Lane Schiffbauergasse, the Historic City Centre with the astounding St. Nicholas Church as well as many other sights.
