Potsdam - Stadtschloss

Generalfeldmarschall
(In picture, the Fortunaportal seen from the courtyard) The Potsdam City Palace (Gr. Potsdamer Stadtschloss) was built in the 1660s as a residence for Elector Friedrich Wilhelm of Brandenburg. The palace was rebuilt by G. W. von Knobelsdorff, during the time of Frederick II of Prussia. The Allied bombing of April 14, 1945 - only weeks before the end of WWII - badly damaged the palace, which stood neglected until 1960, when Walter Ubricht ordered its destruction. - (c) Generalfeldmarschall. #Alter_Markt #Brandenburg #Deutschland #Frederick_II #Frederick_II_of_Prussia #Frederick_the_Great #Friedrich_der_Große #Friedrich_II_von_Preußen #Germany #Great_Elector #Große_Kurfürst #Hohenzollern #Knobelsdorff #Kurfürst_Friedrich_Wilhelm #Potsdam #Potsdamer_Stadtschloss #Potsdamer_Stadtschloß #Preussen #Preußen #Prussia #Stadtschloss #Stadtschloss_Potsdam #Stadtschloß #Stadtschloß_Potsdam
