Potsdam is the city of the Kings and Kaisers, having housed their vast army as well as being home to their most famous palaces. Just outside the city limits of Berlin, this garrison city was the jewel of the Prussian Empire. Since German reunification in 1990 Potsdam has thrived – the baroque streets have been beautifully restored and the city is proud to be the State Capital of Brandenburg.
We tell the stories of Potsdam’s dramatic growth thanks to the efforts of four generations of exceptional kings, through to the two World Wars which sealed the fate of Europe and the world in 1945.
