“Without a care” – that is the meaning of Potsdam’s probably most famous palace, Sanssouci. But it is also a feeling that many places in the city project: the extensive gardens, the baroque city centre or the banks of the Havel River. Potsdam invites you on a journey through Europe: the oranges in Sanssouci Park make you dream of Italy, the red coloured bricks of the Dutch Quarter remind you of Amsterdam. And within the next moment you find yourself in the fairytale-like Russian Colony Alexandrovka. Whether by bike, hiking or on water – Brandenburg’s state capital at the gates of Berlin impresses with a well-developed network of paths that include idyllic views of the picturesque cultural and Havel landscape.
