Potsdam

4

Versailles of Germany

Formerly an official residence of the Prussian kings, Potsdam is surrounded by a series of interconnected lakes, parks, and palaces. It ranks as Germany's largest World Heritage Site and is a major stop on many Berlin itineraries. More than a thousand years old, the city is part of Berlin's metropolitan area. It's served by both inner and outer suburban trains and highways. This center of European immigration is known for its openness and diversity. Potsdam has always attracted people from the Netherlands, France, and Russia. All of these immigrants have left an indelible mark on the city's culture and architecture. Be sure to set aside plenty of time for a leisurely exploration of the 18th-century Sanssouci Park, Potsdam's most notable attraction. King Frederick the Great considered this lavish residence and its elaborate gardens a refuge where he could live "sans souci" (without worries), away from the bustling Berlin. Potsdam is in Brandenburg. Customize your holiday with our Germany journey site to create an adventure that suits you.
