Music, spectacle and culinary specialities for the whole family await you at this Dutch festival in the middle of Potsdam. During Advent, the Dutch Santa Clause "Sinterklaas" also visits the children of Potsdam in the Dutch Quarter. On Saturday, 07.12.2019, Sinterklaas and his entourage will arrive at Potsdam Harbour at about 13.30 hrs. The Lord Mayor will receive Sinterklaas on behalf of all Potsdamers and the Potsdam police will guide him and numerous guests through the city to the Dutch Quarter. There, the scent of matjes, knee pertjes and genever is heard throughout the quarter, singing and listening to the old tunes on the original barrel organ. Regional and local traders and restaurateurs take care of the culinary supply. The Sinterklaas is available to the children on the stage at the intersection of Mittelstraße and Benkertstraße for chats on both days.
