Europe Day 2023

09.05.2023 - 09.05.2023

Residential areas with unusual names characterise Potsdam: Dutch Quarter, Alexandrowka and Kongsnaes. The Hohenzollerns' immigration policy began in the 17th century. Based on a mixture of tolerance and economic considerations, people from all over Europe were brought to the residential city, bringing with them their culture, building and way of life. Potsdam is home to architectural references from, for example, the Netherlands, France, the Czech Republic, Scotland, Russia, Switzerland, England, Greece and Norway. Italy invites you to visit the Orangery Palace in Sanssouci Park. When visiting the Glienicke Bridge, the eye is drawn to England and the origin of Kongsnaes in Norway.
