He rented a nice little apartment, together with a student friend, something German students routinely do, as affordable rentals are available.
Now he actually can use his bicycle or the tram for a few short stops.
Potsdam has a much slower pace then Berlin, more like a small town, located amidst beautiful parks and between lakes. The old Frederick the Great already found this place adorable, as he build Sanssouci, the amazingly beautiful summer palace of the Prussian royalties.
I have written more about it here, if you are interested to see some more pictures in summer time.
This time, just some street scenes, and places which caught my eye...
|Typical Potsdam architecture|
|Church at the old town, Brandenburger Strasse|
|Beautiful court yard|
|Tiny cafe, our lunch place.|
|Flowers tell of spring everywhere|
This time we walked around town, he showed me his amazing university and the neighborhood next to it.
Castle Belverdere is only 200 m up the hill from his school.

Potsdam might be small, but is filled with historical and architectural treasures.
There are distinct different neighborhoods. One more interesting and lovely then the next....
There is a Dutch quarter and the Russian village of Alexandrowka, all within walking distance, yet never reminding me of Disney World, as you might now think...
|Just like any street in Gouda, Holland|
|Brick and sky|

Potsdam is wonderful to walk through, relax among the
gardens of Sanssouci or have lunch in one of the small restaurants easily found in the center of town.
There is great opportunity to shop in lovely antique shops or even a department store on Main street.

Oh, go and see it one day!
