    The Cecilienhof Castle is located in the 74-acre New Garden in Potsdam, which is located between the Holy See and the Jungfernsee. The complex was acquired by Friedrich Wilhelm I in 1783 as a summer residence. The castle was built by Kaiser Wilhelm II between 1913 and 1916 in the style of an English country house. The building, which comprises 176 rooms, cost 8 million gold marks and served as a residence for the crown prince of Hohenzollern. The castle was named after the Crown Princess.
    The castle gained its historical dimension through the signing of the Potsdam Agreement in August 1945 in its rooms. The agreement between the four victorious powers of the Second World War (the Soviet Union, the United States, Great Britain and France) involved the division of Germany into four parts and its central government by the Allied Control Council. Visitors can find out more about the Potsdam Conference in an exhibition in the rooms of the castle.

    Definitely worth seeing . In the autumn it is not so crowded and you have more space to look at everything in peace.

    Cecilienhof Palace was the Allied conference center after the end of the Second World War. The narcissus fountain in a small courtyard is nice.

    The castle is not only worth seeing because of its history. It is beautifully embedded in the park and on the lake. Definitely worth seeing. We recommend the tours offered in the castle. Very informative and well structured.
