  • It makes sense and worthwhile to walk from the Glienicker Bruecke through the New Garden on the Holy Lake to the now renovated Cecilienhof Castle (30 minutes), in which the Allied victorious powers of the Second World War signed the agreement on the future Germany signed. The memorial to this event( which has been prepared with great effort( is reminiscent of this event (and differs positively from the Karlshorster counterpart, which is dusty and seems to be museum-- antiquated because of insufficient budget support). The New Garden, which surrounds the Cecilienhof, is one of the most beautiful examples of English garden art— and, after reunification, a place for relaxing walks. It is a pity that the earlier very popular and qualitatively saclaimed café in the courtyard of the Cecilienhof "went away" as part of the renovation of the castle. For the dairy in the immediate vicinity " became the" stopover place— with wine-tasting dishes and excellent homemade beer.

  • Very beautiful very large and very authentic historic manor house. I was not inside, since I got here in the evening and it was closed, but I managed to completely inspect it from the outside and go into the courtyard, next to which were beautiful and well-kept flower beds with flowers, and inside there was a fountain with a statue. The estate itself looks like a house from a fantasy tale, which was hidden deep in the forest among the trees and silence. It even has its own dungeon. Not just a basement, but a dungeon, as it was written on a stand that showed the plan and legend to that plan of the estate.
  • Good for remembrance. I would mention a big 0 for the Staff of sanitary. Not speaking another language than German. I was told that we are in Germany and as such I should speak German. I was asking for change to insert in the machine to go to the toilet. IS THE WAY YOU WELCOME TOURISTS???
