Potsdam is often visited as a day trip whilst staying in Berlin, simply because it is very close to the German capital and easy to be reached by public transports. However there are plenty of activities to do and things to see in Potsdam that staying for more than a day would probably be the best option.

Finding an inexpensive accommodation is not a huge problem; in fact, there are some hostels in Potsdam that are very budget friendly and can offer a comfortable stay, including private rooms if dorms aren't good enough and if you're seeking more privacy. The hostels in Potsdam are well located too, which only makes the stay a bit more comfortable. There also are other kind of accommodations like hotels, but the price for a night's sleep is slightly more expensive than the hostels in Potsdam.

Potsdam is full of a lot of historical buildings and some are also UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The city used to be the residence for the Prussian kings and the German Kaiser for some time, so it has a lot of landmarks left from that time.

Apart from lovely historical palaces, stunning gardens, beautiful parks (like the vary famous Sanssouci), lakes, and even castles, Potsdam also has plenty of new and modern architecture, which makes a change to the beautiful old one. From the cutting-edge Hans Otto Theater to a futuristic playground for children, Potsdam offers interesting spanking-new structures to be explored, which creates a nice mixture. In the city, there also is a Dutch quarter, which hosts houses with the very typical Dutch architectonic style.
