Potsdam is the capital city of the state of Brandenburg in Germany. As of 2007, Potsdam had an estimated population of 148,691.

Although Berlin was the official capital of Prussia and later the German Empire, the Prussian kings (later German Kaisers) used Potsdam as the location for their court, until the last Kaiser, Kaiser Wilhelm II abdicated in 1918. However, the city is most famous for being the location that the victorious allied leaders (Harry S. Truman, Josef Stalin and Winston Churchill, then Clement Attlee) held a series of conferences on the future of Europe in 1945.

Berlin, Potsdam, Oranienburg & Beyond

By Willem Bekker

Hunter Publishing
Released: 2010-04-21
Kindle Edition (94 pages)

Berlin, Potsdam, Oranienburg & Beyond
Product Description:
The author, a travel journalist, was born and lives in Germany. This guide focuses on Berlin, Germany’s capital, its largest city, and perhaps its most interesting destination. It has more than 170 museums, three opera houses, an enormous cultural variety, and gripping modern history. An interesting daytrip is to royal residences in nearby Potsdam. The author provides innumerable tips on special discounts available for travelers (some 20 on train and bus travel alone) and tells how to save on gas (cheapest on Mondays, most expensive on Wednesdays), as well as virtually everything else, with inside information on getting the best hotel rooms at the best prices, the best deals and the best food at restaurants. For every area of the country, full information is supplied on how to get around, the best shopping, the foods and the recommended places to eat, where to stay, from charming guesthouses, hostels and campsites, on up to the most luxurious hotels. Includes town and country walks, cycling, fishing, canoeing & kayaking, Rhine cruises, wine tours, concerts and other cultural events - it's all here! As a Pocket Adventure Guide, it shows you how to experience everthing the country offers more intensely and directly than most travelers know how to do - seeing the place close-up through adventures, both cultural and physical, including in-depth encounters with the people. Other guides lack our level of detail, our adventure perspective and our emphasis on direct experience of the country. We provide an insider's knowledge that you won't find in other guides.
