Shaping the world                                                                                            

Built from 1913 to 1917 in the English country house style, Cecilienhof Country House is the last palace built by the Hohenzollerns. Emperor Wilhelm II (1859-1941)
had the residence built for his eldest son, Crown Prince Wilhelm (1882-1951). Until 1945 it was the residence of the last German Crown Prince and Crown Princess Wilhelm and Cecilie of Prussia (1886-1954).

From July 17 to August 2, 1945, the palace at the gates of Berlin became the scene of world history, the site of the Potsdam Conference,
where the heads of state and government of the three main victorious powers of the Second World War, the United States, Great Britain and the Soviet Union, discussed the future of Germany and a political and territorial reorganization of Europe and the world.
While World War II was over in Europe and the "Big Three", Harry S. Truman, Winston Churchill and Josef Stalin were negotiating, the fighting in Asia and the Pacific region continued unabated, culminating in the dropping of the atomic bombs
on Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6 and 9, 1945

The permanent exhibition takes visitors on a journey back in time to 1945 in the historic palace rooms with the conference hall and the workrooms of the
three heads of delegation.

We offer the following group tours:

  • Cecilienhof Country House, the historic site of the Potsdam Conference with multi media guide (this offer does not include the private rooms of the crown prince couple)
  • Park guided tour New Garden

    Booking Policies

    We offer a flat rate for groups limited to a maximum number of participants. The group rate always includes fees for group admission to the individual palaces, as well as a personal tour guide or audio guides.

    If the number of participants exceeds the maximum size allowed, the group will be divided. Each group is allotted an admission time. The group flat rate is calculated per tour group. At some palaces, we offer a surplus fee up to a specific number of participants for the second guided tour. The surplus fee flat rate cannot be booked as an individual service.

    There is no minimum number of participants required for a group tour.

    Guided tours can be booked in a variety of languages. The bookings of a respective language are carried out subject to availability of tour guides and cannot be guaranteed.

    We offer a 10 % discount from the group price for the groups accompanied by a guide licensed by the SPSG. The discount does not apply to group bookings / group tours with audio guide.

    Special arrangements for groups outside the scheduled opening hours are possible on request. In addition to the group fee for a guided tour, extra charges apply for a special opening.
