Lonely Planet review

Frederick the Great's final building project was this temple-like Belvedere, modelled on Nero's palace in Rome. From here you can enjoy a panorama taking in the park, lakes and Potsdam itself. The upstairs hall has an impressive frescoed dome, oak parquet and fanciful stucco marble.

En route, you’ll pass the Drachenhaus (Dragon House; 1770), a fantastical Chinese palace inspired by the Ta-Ho pagoda in Canton and guarded by an entire army of dragons. It now houses a pleasant cafe-restaurant.
