The city of Potsdam
The city’s strong population growth is testament to its new attractiveness – since 2000, Potsdam has been one of the fastest growing cities in Germany, and it is not surprising that more and more Berliners are moving here. The city offers a host of first-rate cuisine, fantastic markets, unique celebrations and festivals, and a wide range of traditional, cultural highlights. Within the city limits you will not only find the Sanssouci palace complex, but also prominent landmarks, such as the Dutch Quarter and the former Russian Colony. The green landscape in and around Potsdam, which is dotted with waterways and lakes, offers incredible leisure and recreational value, and attracts more and more visitors and new residents from the nearby metropolis of Berlin. Thanks to its inner-city parks, and proximity to the cosmopolitan city of Berlin, Potsdam’s residents enjoy splendid access to leisure and recreational facilities.
