Nice historical place. The star in front of the schloss was red. Excellent environment in the New Gardens, near the another highlight worth to see-the Marble Palace.

In Cecilienhof you really gets close to one of the historic landmarks ! You experience where Churchill, Truman and Stalin settled the future of Europe after WW2. Awesome !! The electronic devices help you through the various sceneries, and provide essentiel information. Don't miss it.

It is worth visiting Schloss Cecilienhof just to see where Stalin, Roosevelt/Truman and Churchill decided on the future of Europe after WW2. If you don't care about that, I wouldn't visit.

It's mostly the history especially related to the July 1945 Potsdam conference, that makes this place attractive. The palace itself is not really worth a detour
