The palace is located away from center of Potsdam but definitely worth to visit - the palace has beautiful surrounding, interesting architecture and of course it's great way to learn more about end of WWII.

Our family of 5 visited Germany to learn more about World War II and we definitely were not disappointed when we visited the site of the Potsdam Conference. The site was informative, educational and beautiful.
