Travel Tips for Potsdam
New castle was built in 1763-1769 for family and guests of Friedrich II by architects Johann Gottfrid Buering, Heinrich Ludwig Manner and Carl von Gottard. There are 200 rooms, but 60 rooms around were for living. Last reconstruction was in last German Kaiser Wilhelm II times (beginning of XX century). There are interesting exhibits and details of the king's family life, including winter sledge used by Friedrich II.
The palace is open 9 am-5 pm (till 4 pm in winter times), Fridays closed. in winter times it is possible to go inside only with guide and the entrance fee is EUR 5. The official site says it is possible to go by yourself but only in summer.
A large mushroom spotted on the verge on Koenigstrasse somewhere between Berliner Vorstadt and Berlin Wannsee.
At dusk, these verges, on the edges of woodland, are frequented by foraging Wildschwein (boar), which are so large that they have sometimes been mistaken for donkeys by passing motorists!! (I didn't make this up... I have it from a friendly local! :)

This historic Potsdam Conference Center
After WWII the victorious allied powers met in Potsdam for a historic summit on how the post war world would be governed and their meeting place, like the one in Yalta, has been preserved. This building is quite nice and looks almost like a Tudor manor to my eye. The grounds have gardens which are well-maintained. The rooms are labelled (American delegation, Russian delegation etc.) and have historical information in English, French, German, and Russian. No photographs are allowed inside the conference center for fear the flash will stain the upholstery blue or sensitive information might be passed on to the Chinese.
