Cecilienhof Palace is located in the New Garden, which got redesigned by Peter Joseph Lenné in 18916. Like all palaces in the Potsdam’s landscape, Cecilienhof is about living with nature. Built in the style of an English country house, it cleverly conceals its actual size. 180 rooms are grouped around five inner courtyards. The furnishings were luxurious and - as the first palace in Potsdam - intended for a year-round stay. Cecilienhof always surprises with new details. These include the 55 chimneys, none of them resembles the other. A tour around the palace will let you discover even more.

Today, the palace is an historic memorial, in which the conference room and the working rooms of the participants of the Potsdam Conference can be visited.

From 17th June to 2nd August 1945, the victorious powers of World War 2 met in the rooms of Cecilienhof Palace for the Potsdam Conference. Churchill, Truman and Stalin made world history here and discussed how to divide Germany and signed the contract. The Potsdam Conference is a world wide symbol of the end of World War 2 and the beginning of the Cold War, which led to the division of Europe and the erection of the Berlin Wall.
