"To Potsdam, to Potsdam! That's what I need to be happy. When you see this city, you will surely like it."

Potsdam is the life's work of Frederick the Great. He preferred to reside in Potsdam rather than Berlin and had the city redesigned according to his plans. Italian Renaissance and Baroque buildings were the inspiration for the embellishment of the city. The Prussian king was passionate about building and created his dream destination in the south, his ersatz Rome. You can see the Italian inspiration and architectural models for yourself in many of the paintings in Sanssouci Palace. Numerous 18th-century views of the city of Potsdam will inspire you in the New Chambers and represent the transformation of the barren soldier town into an architectural showpiece.Translated with DeepL
