Potsdam, Germany

Potsdam is a city southwest of Berlin, and is accessible by S-Bahn from Berlin. I went there on a day trip.

I have attempted to search for the Einstein Tower, but did not manage to find it (T_T)

Anyhow, I took pictures of visited Schloss Babelsberg (Babelsberg Palace), which is part of the UNESCO Word Heritage Site.

Here is a closer view of the place. Babelsberg Palace was built as a summer residence of Emperor Wilhelm I.

Outside, in the garden/park where the palace overlooks.

After that, it rained. Heavily. I was drenched. (X.X;)

After the rain had subsided (subsided, not stopped!), I visited the more famous Schloss Sanssouci (Sanssouci Palace). This is yet another UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is the former summer residence of Fredrick the Great.

The northern side of the palace.

The colonnades.

A bird cage gazebo outside the palace. *a certain scene from the Sound of Music comes to mind* (^^;)

The southern side of the palace which overlooks the huge garden.

The huge terraced garden, as seen from the top. This picture only shows the fountain.

The palace as seen from the garden.

A short distance from Schloss Sanssouci is the Orangery.

I would have enjoyed this place better if it wasn't raining incessantly (^^;)

And that (finally) concludes my 11-days-10-nights trip to Europe. Stay tuned for an epilogue (^_~)
