The one day it rained in Berlin was the day we had an entire morning and afternoon planned walking around in Potsdam! It also happened to be the one day I did NOT bring my umbrella. We ended up buying one after these photos were taken, but my apologies for the rude hair today!
Sanssouci was my favorite palace we visited, if only for its beauty. The grounds and gardens were impeccably manicured and the interiors were gilded and glamorous, just as one would expect in a fancy royal abode!
I wish we had known a little more about Potsdam before taking the trip, because I would have stayed longer! We arrived via a very small train station, and then left through the main train station which you have to go through town to get to. Potsdam is PRECIOUS! The little village has tons of cute restaurants and cafes, as well as a bunch of antique shops and other treasures. If I had known all of this, we wouldn’t have gotten in a cab right after our tours ended! Definitely something to keep in mind if you ever visit Potsdam.
