Travel Tips for Potsdam

The gardens of Potsdam

by barryg23

Ok, all the tourists visit Park Sanssouci but there is a good reason why. It's very pretty, historic, and picturesque with so much to capture your attention. Walking the beautiful gardens at Park Sanssouci.

Potsdam's Downtown

by DrewV

Potsdam itself is a right charming little town, not to mention being the capital of Brandenburg, the German state that completely surrounds Berlin. Here you can see a little processional gate that provides an entrance from the town into the palace district.

Potsdam invariably involves a lot of walking and glancing at beautiful gardens and the palaces that love them. The whole experience becomes a sort of haze. That said, I can certainly understand the appeal for day-tripping Berliners anxious to find a little countryside on the shores of the lake.

Sans Souci Palace

by Kate-Me

This Palace was extremely decorative, rather opulent, and many sculptures, and so much gold everywhere as to be almost OVERdone.
Gold was used with almost as much frequency as normal paint, lessening its dramatic effect somewhat for me by the end of the tour.
An interesting feature of the palace bedrooms that I particularly loved was that though the rooms were square, on one side there was a pretty alcove where the bed was positioned, and velvet drapes could be pulled across to cover it, still leaving a completely square room.
Schloss Sans Souci had the most interesting history (we could read the English summary while the guide spoke in German and I caught a few words here and there)
When Frederick was a boy, his father had been cruel and tyrannical and was rather keen on war, sport and hunting.
The son was more inclined towards the arts and reading, and this didn’t go down well. Frederick and his friend, a servant, actually made an attempt to run away, which failed, and the King had the friend killed in front of his son, of course causing the two to become real enemies from that day on.
When the boy became King after the death of his father, his title was Konig Frederick der grosse von Preusen - (Frederick the Great from Prussia). King Frederick spent summers at Sans Souci ( meaning ‘without worries’ in French) because it was a place where he could go and be carefree (normally he lived in Berlin). Frederick lived alone, enjoying the arts. He was especially fond of Voltaire, and is said to have had over 2000 books in his library, knowing exactly where each one was located.

After the tour, we had some free time to wander the gardens, which I found very attractive too, loving their symmetry.
The fountain came on about 30 seconds after I took my photo....

St Nicholas church History

by Imbi

St Nicholas church is situated right at the heart of Potsdam, rising majestically above the old market.
It was built in early nineteenth century and believed to be one of the most impressive architectural achievements German Classicism. It suffered several damages during war but still looks great.

Old Market

by Imbi

The Old Market used to be the administrative and architectural centre of Potsdam. Here you could still see how town looked liked in early days.
There are not many tourists but a place of very interesting history of this historic town.
