Potsdam, Germany

Neues Palais (New Palace)

What a week it’s been! Meeting new people from our other offices, walking tours, conference meetings and lots of food were all a part of the itinerary.

We flew into the Berlin – Tegel Airport and then made our way to Potsdam. Our accommodations were at the Dorint Hotel Sanssouci Potsdam and it was huge! There were several dining rooms, restaurants and quite a few amenities. It was a very comfortable stay.  The breakfast buffet was delicious with lots of options.

I was very glad to have stayed in Potsdam instead of Berlin because the pace of life was slower and more peaceful. During the day we did walking tours around the city and it’s beautiful. The architecture of buildings with the vast amounts of green space gave me a sense of relaxation. It was very inviting to go for a walk and just explore. We walked through the Sanssouci Royal Park and saw an array of buildings and palaces. The Sanssouci Palace is on top of the hill, overlooking vineyards and fruit trees. It was former summer palace of Frederik the Great, King of Prussia. Our guide explained that there weren’t any female servants or guests, making it the ultimate “man cave” in my opinion.

How could you not love this place with sights like this?
