It was our first time visiting Potsdam, the capital of Brandenburg and located just outside of Berlin.
Throughout spring/summer there are plenty of places to swim and experience nature throughout the city. With even a few castles you can visit within the lush parks and floral scented gardens. You can certainly fill a day (or several) here and we are already planning many more trips over the warmer months.
Here are a couple of wonderful places to picnic, swim and take in the city.
Explore: Babelsberg Palace, Flatow Tower, swim spots along the Tiefer See, and views of the Glienicke Bridge (from the Bridge of Spies film).
Explore: Numerous picnic and swim spots along the Helliger See and Jungfernsee.
