    Right next to the former French Quarter lies the Dutch Quarter. 134 red Holländerhäuser in 4 Karrees were built by architect Jan Bouman from 1732 on behalf of the Soldier King in Potsdam. The complex, which is part of the Second Baroque extension of the city, consists of 4 blocks with a total of 134 houses (4 vacant lots still bear witness to the destruction of the war) and is the largest closed Dutch building complex outside the Netherlands. In the neighborhood there are many cafés, pubs and arts and crafts shops. Even lovers of antiques will get their money's worth in the Dutch Quarter.

    Since Potsdam was built on moorland, King Friedrich has been looking for drainage experts. He found these in the Dutch. For the workers he had the Dutch quarter built in the typical Dutch style.

    Some time ago it was saved from demolition and is now a listed building.

    Here you feel like you are in Holland. Considering that it was totally dilapidated decades ago and was about to be demolished, one can only be thankful that this neighborhood has been renovated and is again enlightened in its splendor. Here are also many pubs and hotels / pensions located.
