Many significant features of and events in the closing months of WWII were decided here, and much of the following Cold War started brewing here. Some nearby buildings were used by the Soviets for political, security, and spying purposes when it was East Germany.

Set in the midst of an expansive English style garden, this historical palace is definitely worth a visit. Once cannot help but be in awe to see where one of the world's critical meetings happened in the last century.
