Mini excursion to Potsdam
Posted on September 7, 2014
Christian & Alexandra loaned us their adorable Mini and planned a ‘Mini Adventure Cozy Place Outside Berlin-Wannsee-Caputh Trip” for Thomas & me. Each step of the day was planned out – complete with a hand drawn map illustrated by their 6-year old son Ben. It included notes on where to sink our toes in the sand, where to find a cup of coffee with the perfect Seeblick and finally, which castles were best to visit.
With our cute wheels, we headed west out of Berlin. We walked around Heilandskirche first and then made our way to Cecilienhof Park. The weather was beautiful, so we sat in the park with a picnic, napped, found a warm spot for swimming in the Heileger See and then poked around the castle. We were then off to Sanssouci, another lavish castle with magnificent gardens. After a quick stop in Altstadt Potsdam for Kaffee und Kuchen, we watched the fairy go back & forth in Caputh over a delicious dinner.
It was a wonderful day of sightseeing as our time in Berlin was coming to an end. Many thanks to Christian & Alexandra for planning out such a sweet trip for us!
