Need some initial thoughts on itinerary - Dresden, Potsdam, Berlin

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to book flights for September before my practical side kicks in and tells me that my finances don't allow a trip this year so I want to book this weekend without any recent reading on these locations.

Looking for number of days in each location. Without counting travel days nor arrival day, I'm thinking of 3 days in Dresden, 2 days in Potsdam (including travel from Dresden), and 5 days in Berlin. This seems about right to me but I'm wondering if I need more time in Dresden or Potsdam. Perhaps for some small side trips. I can take up to 2 weeks for the trip.

I like everything, especially churches - all kinds from Baroque to Cistercian - and enjoy a leisurely style rather than running from sight to sight.

Thoughts?

Thanks!
