Castles in Potsdam
One more of the castles, palaces that we can find in the park of Babelsberg, Potsdam outside. If it had been located elsewhere, it would be considered a magnificent palace on the shore of a lake, but being where it is, there is too much competition. Anyway, as all are very close, I recommend doing a tour visiting all the castles
Palaces in Potsdam
Orangery Palace
Orangery Palace began to built after the preliminary drawings of Frederick William IV. The architects Friedrich August Ludwig and Ferdinand Hesse Stüler converted the drawings into reality. The building, 300 meters long, was built in the style of the Italian Renaissance, like the Villa Medici in Rome and the Uffizi in Florence. In the niches along the side of the castle garden annex, there are allegorical figures of the months and seasons. In the building on the corner are the royal apartments Greenhouse and utility rooms. In front are enormous and exotic gardens. When I was there they were restoring it and it did not look at its best, but it is one of the most beautiful buildings of the park (very difficult to pick just one)
Churches in Potsdam
Garrison Church
In 1732, Prussian King Frederick William I, also known as "The Soldier King" ordered a church to be built in Potsdam to be used by elite soldiers. In 1736, they installed a carillon of 40 bells in the steeple of the church. In 1796, Queen Louise asked for two hymns from the bell and for the next 149 years, the Carillon played "Bless the Lord" on top and "Always Faithful and True" at the bottom of every hour. It became world famous and "Always Faithful and True" became the unofficial national anthem of Prussia. On the night of April 14-15, 1945, Potsdam was the target of a British air raid. The tower was on fire, but the chime kept playing Prussia's favorite song, until it fell to the ground. Potsdam was in the Soviet zone and later East Germany and the church was never rebuilt. But in 1987, the soldiers of Iserlohn, West German paratroopers got the funds to rebuild it. After German reunification, the soldiers presented the reconstructed Carillon to Potsdam. This is the former location of the church, which still plays the favorite songs of Prussia.
Historical Monuments in Potsdam
Villa Heydert
The Villa Heydert is a historic residential building in Potsdam. In 1764, it became property of the royal gardener Heydert Joachim Ludwig. 100 years later, it was rebuilt by the architect Ludwig Ferdinand Hesse and he gave it an Italian country style. The building underwent a change of use, when it was purchased in 1921 by Sigismund Thiemann, who began collecting sculptures, paintings, furniture, textiles and works of art from different periods and regions. After his death, they were donated to the state. It's a very nice villa, but today it needs a coat of paint.
