Religions in Potsdam

The ecclesialtic and religious life of Potsdam has always been characterized in particular by wealth and denominational diversity. Promoted by the tolerance policy of the Prussian monarchs since the 17th century, various world religions and the Christian confessions were established in Potsdam quite early and developed their religious life. Christians, Jews and Muslims established their churches, synagogues and places of prayer here; among them the Bahá'í faith is the youngest world religion.
