POTSDAM – the heritage of the residential town on the Havel
The Potsdam cultural landscape has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1990, but has been a popular destination for young and old well before that.
Potsdam’s landscape is dominated by numerous castles and parks. Worth mentioning here is the Sanssouci Castle and Park, the Prussian Versailles, which impressively combines architecture and landscape. There is still a lot going on in Potsdam today – the privately donated Barberini Museum only opened in 2017.
In addition to these classical areas of art and culture, the Babelsberg Film Studio opened its doors to renowned filmmakers in Germany and worldwide in 1912. With a total of three universities and numerous research institutes, the city in southern Berlin has been home to scientists and students since the fall of the Berlin Wall.
