Alter Markt

The Church of St Nicholas, one of the finest examples of German neo-Classical architecture, overlooks the square. The dome, finished in 1850, is modelled on the basilica of St Peter's in Rome. The architecture of the surrounding palaces also takes its inspiration from Italy. At n° 9, the Potsdam Museum, housed in the old town hall designed by Jan Bouman (1755), traces a thousand years of Potsdam history.
