Potsdam celebrates Frederick the Great

The public birthday celebrations in Potsdam on 24 January 2012 are a highlight of the festival commemorating 300 years since the birth of Frederick the Great (1712-1786). A wide range of events will remember the Prussian king, whose passion for art and culture was the force behind Sanssouci Palace and many other famous buildings. The exhibition 'FRIEDERISIKO. Frederick the Great' runs from April to October and is a fantastic way to learn more about this famous historical figure.
