This Potsdamer Schlössernacht is all about getting to know each other, getting closer to the new and unknown – and this time with a lot of French flair! At Les Rendez-Vouz au Park Sanssouci on 9 and 10 August 2024, perhaps the largest Variety Mile of all time invites you to stroll and marvel with an extensive hygiene concept."

Lake Tiefer See ripples now, as ever, along the banks of the Potsdam quarter known as the Shipbuilder's Lane (Schiffbauergasse). The historical diversity lends itself at first glance to intrigue: the Prussian Hussars blew their shrill whistles as they completed their drills; an array of Prussian chateaus and gardens fill the Lane; the great steam boats of the Havel River were once built here; and teeming fish hatcheries were operated on the banks of Lake Tiefer See. read more...
