A piece of the summit of Kilimanjaro at the New Palace, a swastika in Sanssouci Park, a remnant of the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair, the starry ceiling of a villa alluding to the Masonic setting of Mozart’s opera The Magic Flute, a spectacular Expressionist tomb, a stone that sings in the heart of the city, a copy of the music pavilion of one of King Louis XV’s mistresses, a luminous art installation under a bridge, a carved monkey from the Leaning Tower of Pisa, chimneys replicating those at Hampton Court in London, the esoteric passions of King of Prussia Frederick William II, a column to commemorate the death of a parrot, a tower to calculate the displacement of the Earth’s rotational axis, the last witness to the extraordinary epic of silk production in the Babelsberg district, a woman who disguised herself as a man to fight Napoleon, the spectacular hidden remains of Katharinenholz firing range, the forgotten mock-ups in Zeppelin Park …
Potsdam offers countless opportunities to step off the beaten path and is home to any number of well hidden treasures that are revealed only to residents and travelers who are ready to explore.
Secret Potsdam is an indispensable guide for those who think they already know Potsdam or would like to discover its hidden places, taking you far from the crowds and the usual clichés.
