Skyline of PotsdamThe city of Potsdam is more than one thousand years old. Located along the banks of the Havel river and the surrounding lakes, Potsdam has a lot to offer to its visitors: palaces, gardens and numerous monuments - all ensconced in the midst of a unique cultural landscape and at the same time providing a scientific environment which is unparalleled in Germany, not to mention an extremely lively cultural scene.

Cinema history has been and still is being written in Potsdam. The movie classic "The Blue Angel" was shot here, "The Pianist" and "Around the World in 80 Days". In addition to the movie and television industries Potsdam is home as well to many of the top companies in high-tech and design. Potsdam is both a city to live in and to love. You can make yourself at home here - whether in a listed building, in a refurbished pre-fab high-rise originating from East German times, in a mansion or even in a terraced house.
