Germany: Cecilienhof Palace

Today I got ten postcards: five from Germany, one from Indonesia, one from Taiwan, one from South Korea, one from the Philippines and one from Turkey.

One of the cards from Germany shows the Cecilienhof Palace in the New Garden in Potsdam. Cecilienhof Palace was built at the behest of Emperor Wilhelm II for his son Crown Prince Wilhelm and his wife Duchess Cecilie of Mecklenburg-Schwerin from 1912 onwards and is therefore the last palace built by the House of Hohenzollern. In 1945 the Potsdam Conference was held in Cecilienhof Palace. Since 1990 is Cecilienhof Palace as one of the palaces of Potsdam on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
