Hotel Reservations in Potsdam
Experience the fusion of historical royal and political intrigue outside your luxury hotel in Potsdam. With a thriving mix of arts, entertainment and sports, Potsdam is an abundance of German history, culture, and recreation.
Make sure to visit some of Potsdam's most historical landmarks. Potsdam - with about 20 lakes and rivers in and around it - was founded in medieval times around the 7th century, but evidence of settlement dates back to the Bronze Age. It was a prominent center for European immigration, which is reflected in the culture and architecture of the city. The city is now a center of science and considered one of Germany's most prominent university towns.
Most notable is Sanssouci Park, constructed by King Frederick the Great so he could live "without worries". The Park is home to Sanssouci Palace, with its gorgeous Rococo interiors, and the famed Botanical Garden. Much larger and grander than Sanssouci Palace is Neues Palais (New Palace) built between 1763 and 1769. New Palace is largely Baroque in style, has over 200 rooms and features a theatre and collection of statues numbering at more than 400.
Other notable sites are the Roman Baths, Chinese Tea House, Brandenburg gate, and Fortunaportal and Nikolaikirche at Alter Market. Filmstudio Babelsberg is the oldest large-scale film studio in the world and a prime example of Potsdam's rich history of film and television production.
Potsdam is also a great option for sports enthusiasts, with soccer and rugby teams and an Olympic training center.
