Nobody doubts that Potsdam is a feast for the eyes. But the culinary delights are not neglected in the Brandenburg state capital, either. Whether cosy cafés or excellent restaurants - coffee lovers and gourmets alike will find a varied cuisine in Potsdam. And what better way to end the evening after an extensive palace tour than with a good meal or cocktail in a pleasant atmosphere?

If you visit the Dutch Quarter anyway, you should definitely plan a coffee break there. Many of the restaurants and cafés have secluded backyards that invite you to linger. In summer you can sit and eat on the banks of the Havel River - in the shade of the chestnut trees at Otto-Braun-Platz or at Potsdam harbour with a view of the Havel bustle. The square at the Nauener Tor or the restaurants in the historic city centre also offer culinary diversity and a beautiful backdrop for relaxing hours.

Potsdam is an excellent place to drink at a high-end level. Bars are found in the heart of Potsdam to round off an evening in style. In addition to classic drinks and cocktails, many bars also offer spontaneous creations made from high-quality spirits.
