The palace was built during the First World War. Cecilienhof became famous during the Potsdam Conference in August 1945 when Truman, Stalin and Churchill sealed the fate of Germany after the end of the Second World War.
The red Soviet star, planted with flowers in the entrance courtyard at the time, still welcomes visitors. You may visit Cecilienhof in its full splendour again after extensive renovation. Today it belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage and houses the permanent exhibition on the Potsdam Agreement. A partial use as a hotel is planned for the future.
