Prince and Princess of Prussia Move to Potsdam

  October 30, 2017 at 1:43 pm by

Prince Georg Friedrich of Prussia, head of Germany’s former Imperial family will move to Potsdam, near Berlin. In 2011 he married in Potsdam to Princess Sophie of Isenburg. The couple has four children: twins Carl Friedrich and Louis Ferdinand (2013), Emma Marie (2015) and Heinrich (2016).

Potsdam is an appropriate choice as the town was the favorite residence of his ancestors, Prussia’s Hohenzollern rulers. In and around the city there are a series of interconnected lakes and cultural landmarks, in particular the parks and palaces of Sanssouci, Charlottenburg, the Neues Palais (New Palace), Orangerie Palace and Cecilienhof.

The prince will however not live in one of these imposing palaces. The Hohenzollern’s lost all of their East German properties after the revolution of 1918 and after the communist take-over in 1945. According to the newspaper Markische Allgemeine the family will settle in a house in the Babelberg borough, close to the Garnisonkirche. They hope to move in before January. They now live in Bremen.
