LIFE IN POTSDAM
It’s hard to find a more convenient location if you want to be close to one of Europe’s coolest capitals, but not necessarily live in the city centre. Potsdam is just outside the vibrant and innovative Berlin. It is a dynamic and experimental city with spectacular museums, designer shops and malls, all kinds of restaurants, biodynamic cafes, crazy nightlife and a variety of exciting and creative neighbourhoods.
But Potsdam itself also has a lot to offer: Beautiful parks surrounding Sanssouci Castle and old architecture combined with a youthful atmosphere and lively local academic culture. Potsdam developed into a centre of science in the 19th century. Today, it is a centre of science, education, technology and innovation, and has its own university with more than 30 research Institutes, including Film University Babelsberg at the film Studios Potsdam-Babelsberg, the German Hollywood. Not surprisingly you will meet students everywhere; strolling along the lake or roaming around the city having the time of their life.
