'Schloss Sanssouci', 'Neues Palais' as well as many-many surrounding buildings (such as the 'Chinesisches Haus', the 'Belvedere auf dem Klausberg' or the 'Roman Baths') are to find in 'Park Sanssouci'. 'Schloss Cecilienhof', the 'Grünes Haus' or the 'Marmorpalais' are located in 'Neuer Garten' along 'Heiliger See' in the norhtern portion of the city. 'Schloss Babelsberg' together with 'Schloss Glienicke' are close to 'Glienicker Brücke' on Bundesstraße 1 in the direction of Berlin-Wannsee. All three park areas are to reach within 20 minutes walking distance from the Potsdam DB main train station.
