Just like that it was our last day in Berlin! Päivi had an afternoon flight to catch, so we only had the morning together. Thankfully we had to time to celebrate the end of our holiday with a hearty German breakfast.
For our third day in Berlin, Päivi suggested we visit a nearby city, Potsdam. As I’d never been, I was game! Potsdam is easy to access by train and the trip takes just 40 minutes. An easy breezy day trip for anyone wanting to see something outside Berlin.

I’m on a long weekend in Berlin – one of my favourite European cities.
