Our recommendations for restaurants in Potsdam

brandeburgertor Potsdam We have a selection of the best restaurants in Potsdam. The criteria for the selection are our many years of experience as city guides in Potsdam, different ratings (Google, Tripadvisor) and sometimes a bonus for the beauty of the surroundings.

What you need to see in Potsdam :
If you arrive by train in Potsdam, the Old Market is the first square that you will visit (list of monuments), you will find the Nicolai Church (climb the tower to enjoy the view), but also the Barberini Museum (list of museums) and the City Palace, which was rebuilt exactly as it looked back then. We continue with the Dutch Quarter with its small shops and cosy streets. Then you follow the pedestrian zone to the Brandenburg Gate and finally cross the large Sanssouci Park. The day is rounded off by the Russiane village, the Cecilienhof Palace or the Schiffbauergasse cultural centre.

The nicest terraces and beer gardens in Potsdam

Cecilienhof Potsdam's great charm and tourist success lies in the beauty of the landscape, dominated by the Havel river, its lakes and forests, around a perfectly preserved baroque city. We therefore recommend you to enjoy the beautiful terraces with some delicious local specialties and a good beer. Here are the most famous.

Return to Berlin via Wannsee :
To return to Berlin, you can take the bus line 316 (every 20/40 minutes - BVG) from the Glienicker Brücke to Wannsee, then the S-Bahn line S7 to Berlin. Before you get there, visit Cecilienhof Palace and walk along the shore (30 minutes) to the bridge.

+49 (0)331 550 650
The former Krongut of Sansouci Palace is 10 minutes away in Bornstedt, a restaurant, bakery, florist in a beautiful postcard environment. Above all on the weekend it is one of the most popular meeting places of the Potsdamer.

Schwanenallee 7, 14467 Potsdam

Lennéstraße 32, 14471 Potsdam
In the park Sanssouci next to the "Roman bath" of K.F. Schinkel you can eat in relaxed German atmosphere, enjoy a good beer and grill sausages. Sometimes simplicity is a plus!
Culturel quarter Schiffbauergass
