In the 19th century, an ensemble of “Swiss” houses was built in the district of Klein-Glienicke in Potsdam, some of which were destroyed during the construction of the Berlin wall and the period of Germany’s division. The Parkchâlet Potsdam replaces one of these lost houses. The new house is a modern interpretation of its predecessor, on whose foundations it was built: the slate roof with its characteristic chimneys and wide roof overhangs, as well as the surrounding balcony and overall colour scheme, all follow the historical model. Unlike the original, however, the new building has large window fronts, glazed gables and upper lights flooding all six apartments with plenty of light. Be it from the kitchen, the sofa, the shower or the bed, the seasonal changes in the idyllic parkland are always in view. The differently sized apartments are furnished in a simple and modern style. And at least one antique piece of furniture adds an individual touch to each.
What to do
Three parks and castles are in close proximity, the center of Potsdam, the new Barberini Museum, and other castles and gardens as well as the sights of Berlin are also within easy reach.
Why we like this house
The house is less a reconstruction than a reinterpretation of the old building. The apartments are perfect for exploring the sights of Berlin and Potsdam, and then relaxing with a view of the picturesque park landscape.
This house is great for
Holidays as well as longer business stays.
