Please help with my semi-final itinerary – Dresden, Potsdam, Berlin

Jump to last reply

I’m almost done with my itinerary and need a sanity check. I think I’ve grouped things together geographically but I could be wrong as my brain is seizing. I have hotels in Potsdam and Dresden but still need a place to rest my head in Berlin so also need some help with that in terms of location – Mitte perhaps?

Given my itinerary, would the Berlin/Potsdam Welcome Card be worth the money?
