City and Region
There is also much to discover outside of Berlin. Potsdam, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is only a few kilometers away, and with the S-Bahn you can reach the historic old town and Sanssouci Palace in just 30 minutes from downtown Berlin. Countless lakes and forests, old towns and idyllic villages near Berlin, especially in the state of Brandenburg, invite for excursions. Day trips and weekend trips are easy to organize due to the excellent infrastructure. Even a trip to the sea (Warnemünde/Baltic Sea) is possible, a short trip to Hamburg or a weekend in Dresden.
