The location of the Potsdam Conference is under reconstruction which is ok. Unfortunately, according to my tour guide, it ALWAYS is. Hopefully it is not true.

Very beautiful historical place. It's a place where Churchill, Truman, Stalin met on the well-known Potsdamer Conference after the world war II. Cecilienhof Palace was built from 1914 to 1917 for Crown Prince William and his wife Cecilie von Mecklenburg-Schwerin.

The main attraction of the palace is the museum on world war II, especially the Potsdam Conference that happened here in 1945. Other than that, nothing much to see inside or out.

The history of a small selection of the rooms was interesting, but on the whole we found the building a little underwhelming. Perhaps this was due to the substantial amount of building work being done at the time, but we felt it didn't live up...More

For people who like history it is a must. The castle (now a museum) has the original furniture used at the Potsdam Conference so it feels like walking in the past. The tour lasts for about an hour. To get there from Berlin one has...More
