"Potsdam for a dessert after Berlin" Top 5 Page for this destination Potsdam by magor65

Potsdam Travel Guide: 388 reviews and 1,271 photos

Potsdam, being almost a part of Berlin, should be included in any visit to the capital of Germany. It's easily available by bus or train but we were lucky to go there by car with our German friend.
Although Cecilienhof greeted us with rain, then the weather changed and we could admire the Sanssouci palace and park bathed in the sun. We didn't get inside the palace, but a long walk in the park and visiting other attractions of Potsdam made our day. Now I believe those of you who say that there is much more to Potsdam than the world famous Sanssouci. I liked Alexandrovka - the Russian colony, the Dutch quarter and all other places in the town. Potsdam is a definite 'must'.

    We have been to Berlin twice now but not yet made it to Potsdam (we did however see the Glienicke Bridge from the other end!). We will clearly have to go for "dessert" next time ;-) I love your photos of Sanssouci with the vines in front, and the Chinese tea-house looks magnificent! I also really liked your photos of the Belvedere (so nice that the sun came out) and the dragon :-)

    Another outstanding page of yours. I must admit that I have never heard of the Alexandrovka district before. I especially like the story of Marian Zacharski in your descriptions about the Glienicke Bridge. Very well done.

    Nice overview of the sights of Potsdam. My one visit to Potsdam thus far was a business trip, so I didn't really see any of the sights, but I hope to rectify that soon.
