This is a small palace that, with a mandatory observer (isn't as bad as it sounds, the guides are very informative and friendly), is very interesting to see and hear about. The audio guides are excellent (in English of course) and the displays are very well explained, including differentiating between the original and restored aspects of each room. The Soviets unfortunately took some items, mainly chandeliers! But still plenty of authentic stuff to see.

This was difficult to get to, but worth doing. Better on a guided tour rather than on ones own. Be sure to buy a €3 photo pass before entry. The pass is stamped with the date and so is valid all day in other Potsdam attractions too, which was very handy.

Situated on the bank of the Heiliger See in Neuer Garten is this interesting Palace which is well worth a visit. It was commissioned by Frederick William II of Prussia and designed in the early by Carl von Gontard and Carl Gotthard Langhans, designer of Berlin's Brandenburg Gate in the eighteenth century.

It is now rather dilapidated and undergoing repairs. It was last occupied by the Crown Prince and his wife in the early 20th century before they moved to the new Schloss Cecilienhof, a few hundred metres further north, where the Potsdam discussions between Stalin, Churchill and Roosevelt took place at the end of the Second World War. This is now an hotel.

We had a very nice tour of Marmorpalais (Marble Palace) and found it to be very impressive. Floors were wonderful, views, interiors, and an included audio guide in English. A must see in Potsdam. Way more interesting than Charlottenhof unless you are really into the Potsdam Conference History.
