A little in the shadow of the large city of Berlin, Potsdam is everything but a satellite town! The capital city of Brandenburg state is not only nestled in a charming cultural landscape, but is also characterized by the gigantic history which changed the face of the entire European continent.
The central focus of tourist interest is Sanssouci Palace with its incomparable parklands. However, the erstwhile summer residence of the Prussian King, Frederick the Great, is only one of several attractions which you may discover in Potsdam.
Stroll through the city’s historic quarter, which proudly bears the marks of the many immigrants from throughout Europe who came to the city hundreds of years ago: the Russian colony of Alexandrowka, the Dutch quarter and the weavers’ quarter. Experience the multi-facetted cultural spectrum in Schiffbauer lane, the historic center of the city.
In addition to the historic architectural treasures, Potsdam is also a very modern and trendsetting location. The Babelsberg Film Park has for several years now attracted visitors as well as a number of Hollywood stars to Potsdam. The ‘Biosphaere’ Nature Park impressively demonstrates how our world functions. Or take a walk through the Volkspark on the former BuGa grounds, enjoy an excursion by ship through the canals and lakes of Brandenburg or visit the Bornstedt Royal Estate.
The 4-star superior Hotel Dorint Sanssouci Potsdam is the perfect starting point for all these journeys of exploration, offering you a restful and relaxing atmosphere to return to after an eventful day.
