New Palace
(2)
Located in the Park Sanssouci, Neues Palais is a castle in which several members of the Prussian royal family resided. It's definitely worth the visit, and there aren't usually many people. Also, the recent conservation work around the palace is an added reason to visit.

Flatowturm
(1)
This tower is located in Babelsberg Park (which has a [poi = 178191] palace [/ poi] of the same name), on a small hill, just outside Potsdam. Built in the Gothic style between 1853 and 1856, the tower was modelled after the Torturm Eschenheimer in Frankfurt/Main. There is a moat surrounding the tower whose water is used for irrigation within the park.

In the park of the same name, surrounded by lakes, is where you'll find the less well known [poi = 81001] Sanssouci palace [/ poi] and [poi = 171501] the New Palace [/ poi]. They're a little further away from the center of town. Babelsberg Palace is Gothic style, was built in 1833 as a summer residence for which later became the Emperor William I. Impressive also the garden surrounding the palace, English style.

Orangery Palace
Orangery Palace began to built after the preliminary drawings of Frederick William IV. The architects Friedrich August Ludwig and Ferdinand Hesse Stüler converted the drawings into reality. The building, 300 meters long, was built in the style of the Italian Renaissance, like the Villa Medici in Rome and the Uffizi in Florence. In the niches along the side of the castle garden annex, there are allegorical figures of the months and seasons. In the building on the corner are the royal apartments Greenhouse and utility rooms. In front are enormous and exotic gardens. When I was there they were restoring it and it did not look at its best, but it is one of the most beautiful buildings of the park (very difficult to pick just one)
