Living in Berlin for a longer period of time this year with the royal Potsdam right around the corner, I simply had to visit the city. As such, so I did, and I was stunned by what I saw. This breathtaking little city full of charm, history and culture just 25 minutes with train from Berlin city centre has made a lasting impression on me. Not only is the city itself diverse with an old town, new town and a Dutch Quarter as well as various shopping possibilities etc., no, the city also has its own palaces just outside Brandenburg Gate.
Residence of the old German royal family up until 1918, this city is nothing but spectacular! The old royal seat at Sanssouci Park is absolutely beautiful and definitely exceeds its reputation. The area doesn’t only include the well-known Sanssouci Palace, however, also several other palaces and its gardens as well as various other spectacular buildings open for the public to explore – it’s truly magnificent. I spent an entire day here just exploring the area. As you can actually see the palaces from the inside and get a glimpse of royal life, a day is packing the schedule and I had to come back to explore the rest and just take time to enjoy the many acres of garden with beautiful flowers, trees and lakes.
So if you’re ever in the neighbourhood, this little city of Potsdam may be quite the adventure for you to explore – I know I really enjoy exploring the city and Sanssouci Park.
