Postcards From Potsdam

We spent two wonderful days in Potsdam and think that anyone traveling to Berlin ought to take a couple extra days to discover this historic city. Potsdam is just a short twenty minute trip from Berlin by inter-city rail. Most tourists only visit Sanssouci while in Potsdam; however, this city has so much more to offer.

Potsdam has its own Brandenburg Gate
