There is a lot to discover on the outskirts of Berlin. Just a few kilometers away: Potsdam and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Or take the tram to the historic old town and Sanssouci, just 30 minutes from the city center. Go on an excursion to one of the countless lakes and forests, old towns and idyllic villages nearby. Berlin’s excellent infrastructure makes it easy to take day trips or weekend trips. Venture out to the sea (Warnemünde / Baltic Sea), take a short trip to Hamburg or spend a weekend in Dresden.
