Potsdam – a perfect blend of tradition and modernity
There are well-known names and famous places in abundance in Brandenburg’s state capital. Its rich history is evident at every turn, giving Potsdam its own special charm.
Here, the history of a city becomes an experience in itself. It’s difficult to think of another location in Germany where sophisticated architecture, baroque splendour and a beautiful landscape of parks, lakes and waterways combine with modern architecture, relics from the GDR and the bustle of a prosperous city to form such a fascinating whole.
As anyone who picks up a guidebook will quickly discover, Sanssouci Palace is just one of the many destinations worth visiting. Babelsberg’s media city attracts movie professionals and fans from all over the world, walks along the River Havel or around Heiliger See ('Holy Lake') offer unforgettable experiences of nature in the centre of the city, and the many, beautiful shops in the old town are nuggets of shopping heaven.
Embark on a tour of discovery! Potsdam is a compact city. Even guests who perhaps only have a few hours available to look around will be richly rewarded.
Nature, history, pleasure, urban life – guests take home lasting memories of Potsdam as a liveable and lovable city. Hotel Brandenburger Tor is the ideal base for your explorations. Ask reception staff for a map of the city and the current events programme.
We are delighted to be your hosts in Potsdam!
