    Eurovision final viewing in Potsdam

    by T&THartin Online Now May 17, 2013 at 7:42 AM

    Hi all,

    I'd appreciate any advice on where to watch the final of the Eurovision song contest tomorrow evening (18th May). Are there any places (eg. cafe, sports bar, restaurant) in Potsdam which will be showing this event? We are visiting Potsdam this weekend and would love to get a glimpse of this year's final but the accommodation we'll be staying at doesn't have a TV... Any advice would be much appreciated!

    I will be in Potsdam only for a day and a half. I am very curious if anyone knows about how late the shops stay open in the dutch quarter? Also if anyone knows(just in general) how late the shops/restaurants stay open near Park Sanssouci? Thanks a lot!

    Potsdam by bike tour...

    by Benegan Online Now Apr 22, 2011 at 10:28 AM


    I was hoping that someone might have a recommendation for a good bike tour company in Potsdam? Is biking a good way to see the city in a day? Would renting bikes and touring around on our own make good sense as another option?

    Thanks for any help! - Megan

    Visit Potsdam from Berlin

    by PALLINA Online Now Aug 15, 2009 at 6:24 AM

    Hi! I am probably visiting Postday with a one day trip from Berlin on Aug 31. I think the easiest way is to take the train to Potsdam Hauptbahnhof. Does the same train stop also in Potsdam Sanssouci Bahnhof? Otherwise, is there any public transportation from Potsdam Hauptbahnhof to the biggest attractions?

    Potsdam queries

    by Graceful Online Now Nov 12, 2005 at 8:10 PM

    Hey VT Forums, Long time no see!

    Well, here's my newest travel conundrum; I'll be visiting Potsdam and Berlin next weekend (mostly Potsdam, as thats where my friend/SO/whatever we are... is living at the moment) and i have a few questions:

    I am flying into Schönfeld airport, arriving at around 16:15...
    1) how strict are Schengen area customs and how long will it take me to get to the bus stop?
    2) can anyone comment on Easyjet's punctuality? and their weight limit? (I've had lots of luck with Ryanair... even if i was over, they would still send my bag through)

    various VBB Info
    3)will it be easier for me to get to Potsdam by train and then bus or take the bus directly?
    4) will an Italian University student qualify for the student discount (7day ticket) or price reduction on the daily ticket? I need the Potsdam ABC fare, and am trying to see which option will end up being cheaper. Also, this one ticket (Potsdam ABC) will be good for getting around Potsdam AND Berlin, correct?

    5) Gerrem wrote about Potsdam Castle Night in the Sansousci gardens; anyone know when this event occurs?
    (link Potsdam Nightlife )

    5) any packing tips (besides gloves, scarves, and a really warm coat as said by my host)?

    6) heard about boat rides on the lakes; can anyone give me any more information on those (or link me to where i could get more information)?

    Danke Schoen!

    some things i want to see (my own random notes... if you have something special to add; feel free to add anything)
    Glienicker Bridge/Bridge of Unity
    Chinese Teahouse
    Steam House
