We had a wonderful day with Karin on our day trip to Potsdam. Karin did a lot of planning to make sure that we not only saw the beautiful Prussian palaces and surrounding villages, but also got to see many beautiful villas in surrounding neighborhoods. Special stops include the palace where Stalin, Churchill and Truman decided post WWII Germany's fate, the villa where the Wannsee Conference was held, and Platform 17 where deportations of local Jewish population occurred. Highly recommend!!
