If you have a few hours left on a nice day a stroll in the gardens around Potsdam that are all world cultural heritage is a must. Most popular is the Park around Sanssouci castle but there are at least two more close by the old city that are equally beautiful: Neuer Garten and Park Babelsberg. My recommendation: start at...

It is the end of March and all the flowers are beginning to bloom and the shrubbery become lively again. I enjoyed walking throughout the gardens. What a beautiful, peaceful place!

Getting to Potsdam from Berlin is easy, just take the train. Visit the gardens, they are beautiful. The have vines and roses and ols statues. The palace itself is small, not sure if it is worth a visit.

Enjoyed the bus tour here from Potsdam railway station, we were only there a few hours but that was enough to see the Potsdam Gardens in all its splendure - when you want to take a landscape photograph and sculptures this would be ideal. In a country with amazing gardens, this is very good indeed.

Enjoyed the bus tour here from Potsdam railway station. It was in March so not many flowers but the landscaping and sculptures are nice too see and walk around.

In a country with amazing gardens, this is good. What makes it is a tour of the Palace. The combined tour is an excellent trip.

Beautiful English-style garden (Capability Brown could have been here) sprinkled with interesting buildings in addition to Sans Souci palace: the Neues Palais (New Palace), Old Fritz's picture gallery, the Orangerie, Charlottenhof palace, the Roman Baths and the Chinese Tea-House, not to mention garden statuary everywhere. You can get a day pass to all of them. My 1996 edition of the... More
