Sky Watch in Potsdam, Germany

The Dutch quarter in Potsdam is indeed one of the places where you can stroll, stress-free and with a smile on your face. (as an answer to HPY's question on comments: the Germans asked the Dutch to come and work here. When the Dutch arrived they had a surprise: they had to build their own houses. Hence these buidings.)A place where, apart from the architecture, you can go and visit small charming shops, restaurants and have great coffee and cake in a cafe at the corner of the street.
Sounds good, right?For more skies, follow the link by clicking the logo above!

  1. Beautiful old brick buildings. They look gorgeous against that brilliant sky. My aunt and uncle used to live in Potsdam!

  2. These buildings, all alike, have they belonged to an old factory long ago when mills provided housing for their workers?

  3. The buildings look well kept, and very nice against the blue, blue sky.

  6. Very lovely photo of the town. Love the stricking colours of the red brick. I always love red brick, I think they are so strong and charming. :) Have a nice weekend, Lara.
