Travel Information I
Potsdam was founded more than 1000 years ago and became the "unofficial capital" of Prussia in the second half of the 1700 century. The significance of Potsdam as one of Europe's most important residence towns started with the "Edict of Potsdam" enacted 1685 by King Frederick William I (the Soldier King). Numerous magnificent baroque buildings reflect the spirit of the culture and arts that have characterized this "Palace of Pleasure" for more than three centuries. For more information and impressions visit Potsdam's official homepage.
