Moving to Potsdam
Potsdam is one of the most beautiful cities in Germany. It’s surrounded by lakes and forests and it’s full of history and culture (especially because it’s home to so many students). In fact, Potsdam is where the Sanssouci Palace – Frederick the Great’s summer residence – is located.
The city blends urban living with a lush green environment and it offers its residents access to a large number of regional or long-distance destinations via public transportation like trams and fast trains.
