Little Russia
Aug 2020
Alexandrowska is the Little Russia of Potsdam. The houses are old Russian Style and the green sourrounding offers some serentiy

Charming Russian Village
Dec 2019 • Family
Fantastic little Russian village in the middle of Potsdam. Very charming even in the winter and one can only imagine how gorgeous when fruit trees and flowers are in bloom. Impressive gardens surround each house. Tea house could not accommodate our large party of 8 and oddly enough was ran by people speaking German only... no English or Russian. I would have loved to have some tea , but overall, it’s worth a visit. Odd and awesome piece of history.

Fabulous Russian cooking, within walking distance of Cecilenhof and Sansoucci
Oct 2019
We spotted this restaurant on the hop-on, hop-off bus tour of Potsdam and decided to pop back for lunch en route to Cecilienhof, after going round Sansoucci palace. It was well worth it - delicious borsch, excellent pelmenyi (filled dumplings) and a sweet cheese pancake, washed down with Russian beer. Great service and a warm setting on what was a cold day. We really enjoyed our visit.

Amazing buildings
Oct 2019 • Couples
This was a very interesting neighbourhood to walk around. We were very surprised by the houses that reminded us of Swiss chalets or Austrian cuckoo clocks. This was totally unexpected. The houses were very spread out as each one had been given part of an orchard. The houses were originally given to Russian band members in the army. We'll worth a visit

UNESCO recognised wooden Russian buildings from early 1800s
Sep 2019
In the Northern part of Potsdam you will find the Alexandrowka Russian Colony,

I believe only one of the, beautifully intricately designed carvings on the houses, is still lived in by relatives of the original inhabitants!

The houses are all made of wood and each house has a lovely garden too.

There is a small museum where you can get all of the facts and, on a hill just behind the colony, is a church that was also built for them.

This is well worth a little time, say 2-3 hours, to explore a unique peace of history here in Potsdam.

Worth to see it!
Jun 2019 • Family
Few wooden houses in the green area of Potsdam. The surrounding is so quiet. Quite popular destination for cyclists.
I love the architecture!
You might have Russian cuisine in the restaurant at the corner.
Worth seeing!

Beautiful colony
Apr 2019 • Friends
Alexandrowka is a must see in Postdam. The little Russian houses and the Orthodox Russian Church are really beautiful; it was a pleasure to walk in the area, very peaceful, clean and organized.

nice place to walk around

I visited to Alexandrowka, and i felt that i was into the world of Pushkin’s fairy tales. Wooden log cabins with intricate carvings, set in their own gardens, create a charming
residential estate. They were constructed in 1826 underthe direction of the German architect Snethlage, for 12 singers of a Russian choir that was established in 1812. Nice to spend time here.
