The last Hohenzollern building to be constructed in Potsdam, Cecilienhof Country House, was built in 1913-17 in the style of an English country manor for Prussia’s Crown Prince William and his wife Cecilie. The royal family lived at Cecilienhof Country House until shortly before the end of World War II .

The house is primarily known for the Potsdam Conference held there by WWII ’s victorious powers during the summer of 1945. Incorporating a new look since April 2012, the permanent exhibition presents the history of the building and the Potsdam Conference. A revision and a redesign occurred on the basis of the previous exhibition.

The historical events are conveyed in a multilayered display on 18 stelae and panels. In combination with the aura of the location, a lasting image of the conference event is created through a large number of historical photographs. Conversely, the architectural history of the country house and the lives of the royal couple are now also represented with three new wall panels at the entrance and are vividly illustrated by means of select family photographs.

We offer the following group tours:

  • Potsdam Conference 1945 – Shaping the world

    Overview group flat rates

    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.

    All information provided is subject to availability of offers and changes. Prices for groups are only valid in connection with the Stiftung Preußische Schlösser und Gärten Berlin-Brandenburg's (SPSG's) General Terms and Conditions for groups.

When booking a reservation, the purchaser is obliged to indicate in writing that the group in question is a school or youth group. Furthermore, the purchaser must state in writing that the age restriction is adhered to, as noted above.
