Potsdam is a city brimming with history. It was the residence of the Prussian kings and the German emperor until 1918. The parks and palaces of Sanssouci are Germany's largest World Heritage Site, and Cecilienhof Palace was the location of the post-WWII Potsdam Conference between the victorious Allies. Moreover, the city's film studio Babelsberg was an important European film production centre before the war and is the oldest large-scale film studio worldwide. Many of Potsdam's parks form part of UNESCO World Heritage Sites and provide excellent opportunities to get away from the bustle in the city. If you arrive by train, why not get out at the monumental Kaiserbahnhof at Park Sanssouci to start your visit?
