The favored erstwhile residence of Prussian royalty and the German Kaiser, Potsdam sits adjacent to the capital city of Berlin and is perfect for an idyllic day trip. Stroll around the city’s palaces and gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage site, that miraculously survived World War II. Get a glimpse into the Dutch way of life at Little Amsterdam which is considered the largest Dutch housing development outside the Netherlands. This tranquil city is also home to the oldest large-scale film studio in the world. Boasting a large population of settlers from many other European nations, Potsdam is a foodie’s delight with a host of restaurants and eateries specializing in Italian, Dutch, and French cuisine alongside traditional German fare.
