Cecilienhof is a historic place, those who know about history it is the place where the four powers signed the contract that was the basis for post-war Europe. It is now being renovated which feels like lasting ages and looking at it it still looks far from completion. 2017 should be the date, at least what they say. Wouldn't be... More

If you are in Berlin and have enough time, take a trip out to Potsdam to see where history was made at the Cecilienhof (as well as the Sans Souci Palace). The Kaiser's son, Crown Prince Wilhelm, had the Cecilienhof named after his beautiful wife,Built on the shore of the Havel about 10 miles east of central Berlin the palace... More

This country house in mock Tudor style is worth visiting for its connection with the Potsdam Conference of 1945. The conference room where the Big Three met has been preserved in its original condition with the conference table set up for a meeting. The tour of the building also includes visits to the rooms used by Stalin, Churchill/Atlee and Roosevelt/Truman.... More

Work started in 1912 as a Palace for the Crown Prince Wilhelm in the style of a Tudor Mansion, you have to remember the very close family and social ties between the German and British Monarchies, indeed it was not until 1917 that the Sax Coburg Gothas... became the Windsors, it was the seat of the HOHENZOLLERNS until seizure by...

I recently visited Schloss Cecilienhof with my family. Entry is 6 EUR for 5 rooms with an audio guide. The tour does not include the private royal rooms on the first floor. They are charged extra and you have to get into the waiting line again. The castle is currently under major construction and the hotel on the other side... More

A group of students including myself visited the house as part of a trip to Berlin. The tour was very informative, and helpful for our history GCSEs, and the house itself was very beautiful and well-kept. The tour guide spoke good English and was very nice. Overall a very good visit, although it could have been a bit more interactive... More

We took a taxi from Sanssouci to this rather remote palace in a nice residential area of Potsdam. We were with a private guide who was licensed to provide explanations and a tour of the inside of the home. Built by Crown Prince Wilhem and his wife, with construction being ill timed in 1914. A low, tudor style manor house,... More

Enjoyed visiting this unusual place. Not many tourists. There is a small gift shop inside. Large gardens but in March not much to see. Interesting hearing about the history and structure of this unique building.

I went there from Sanssouci Palace. The location is quite far. After taking a bus, there's no proper signage so we got lost. We had to walk very far and after a very long walk, apparently the place is close for renovation. We just went there for toilet break. What a total waste of time, energy and money!!! Plus, the...

Cecilienhof Palace is where the 1945 Potsdam Conference was held. This was where Stalin, Churchill (and then Atlee) and Truman met in July and August 1945 to carve up post war Europe. I’ve seen many photographs of the Conference so it was enlightening to see the places where the photographs were taken. The rooms are much as they were 70+... More
