The Orangery Palace stands in the vast Sanssouci Park in Potsdam. Built between 1851 and 1864 by King Frederick William IV of Prussia, it is a magnificent Renaissance-style palace. The palace is full of attractions such as the Raphael Room with its walls covered with Renaissance paintings, the traditional greenhouses that still function today, and the themed gardens, all of which are reminiscent of the splendor of the period.
Blessed with lakes and rivers, Potsdam is a historical city with beautiful scenery. The city, which has grown since 1660 when it was chosen as the hunting residence of Elector Frederick William of Brandenburg, has numerous Prussian-era palaces that remain in their original state. Potsdam, with its elegant, ornate Rococo architecture and lush greenery, has become a popular tourist destination in the suburbs that can be easily visited from Berlin.
