“o the north of Bassinplatz lies the famous Dutch Quarter, the Holländisches Viertel, with 134 lovely red brick houses graced by shuttered windows, gables, and white trim. Built between 1737 and 1742 by Dutch craftsmen, the community is the largest collection of Dutch-style homes outside of the Netherlands. Covering four city blocks, it's as popular with tourists as it is locals, who flock here for its numerous boutique shops, quaint cafés, and restaurants. Anticipate spending a few hours exploring the area, especially if you take in Johann Boumann House, a museum dedicated to the architect who led this remarkable 18th-century building project. An easy stroll leads to the Brandenburger Strass”

Establishment
“One of the more interesting of the many other buildings found in Neuer Garten is Schloss Cecilienhof. Built between 1914-17 in the style of an English Tudor country house, Cecilienhof is most famous as the meeting place of the Potsdam Conference of July-August, 1945, between the US (Truman), the UK (Churchill), and the USSR (Stalin) at the end of WWII. The building is wonderfully preserved in the state it was in during the conference - including the main conference room itself - and many artifacts remain in place, along with displays detailing the event and its significance. Other highlights include the obelisk in the courtyard and the property's lovely gardens.”
