Palaces and Parks of Potsdam and Berlin (UNESCO World Heritage)

Germany - Berlin - Potsdam - Sanssouci PalaceIn 1990, UNESCO officially recognized the palaces and parks of Potsdam and Berlin, built between 1730 and 1916, as part of the World Heritage. The protected area of the World Heritage Site covers the palace and park of Babelsberg, as well as the ‘New Garden’ situated to the west of the Heiligen See lake, with the Marmorpalais and the Cäcilienhof palace where the Potsdam Agreement was signed in August 1945.

The palace and park of Sanssouci, often called the ‘Prussian Versailles’, are a synthesis of the artistic movements that marked the European cities and courts of the 18th century. The whole complex is an outstanding example of architectural creativity and landscaping, against the spiritual background of the monarchist ideal.
