Day 10 BerlinMay 21, 2019 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C
Spent a great day in Potsdam - magnificent palaces galore, goegeous gardens and a nice town with a quaint dutch quarter as well.
Main attraction is the Schloss SansSouci which was well managed with staggered entry times and helpful audio guide.
Also went through Bildergalerie (renaissance paintings displayed in hall of yellow and white marble), the Neue Kammern (Red jasper hall and no people), Orangerieschloss (italian palace with all things fake Raphael where had to wear enormous slippers), also tower with views over the gardens and the Chinoiserie. Somewhat tired but walked through the Neue Park to Schloss Cecilienhoff where Stalin, Truman and Churchill basically carved up Germany at the Potsdam Conference after WW11.
Could have easily spent two days in Potsdam.Read more
