My wedding is just 7 weeks away and I used the weekend in Berlin to take care of some last minute essentials; girly stuff like flowers and decorations. Sunday was spent in Potsdam, a short 20 minute train ride from Berlin. Potsdam is one of my must-dos for Berlin visitors: it’s the Windsor of Germany. Once the home of Prussian kings and Kaisers, these days it plays host to cultural tourists, drawn in by it’s rococco castle Sanssouci ( The German Versailles), the surrounding gardens, cute boutiques and countless cafe’s and restaurants scattered in the pedestrian zones.
We started the day with a delicious breakfast at Cafe Heider in Potsdam. Dubbed the “living room of Potsdam”, this cute cafe offers yummy cakes since 1878.

On Saturdays, the Potsdam market offers all kind of delicious, local organic produce such as berries, cherries and wild mushrooms and tray bake cakes baked with seasonal fruit such as goose berries.
