Potsdam, the city of Sanssouci and of the UNESCO cultural heritage, is a historic cultural place located just outside Berlin in eastern Germany. Located in an idyllic lake landscape, countless castles and parks are inviting visitors to linger. German and international history is concentrated here in an almost exciting way. Discover the beauty of Potsdam with the impressive castle Sanssouci, the Barberini museum or make an excursion on the extensive network of lakes and canals. The vibrant city of Berlin can be reached by a 30 minutes train journey.
Following the Cermak-conference tradition, we chose a venue outside the urban centre of Potsdam. Situated in picturesque, idyllic surroundings at the shore of the Templiner See, the Seminaris SeeHotel offers a serene working atmosphere that encourages lively discussion and networking.
