Potsdam - drive or train? stay the night?

Jump to last reply

Hi - I am planning a trip to Germany and we want to visit Potsdam from Berlin. We are going to rent a car at some point to drive down to Dresden and sites south. My question: should we:
1) Rent the car in Berlin, drive to Potsdam in a morning, see some sights, stay the night and then see more of Potsdam and leave that afternoon?
2) Take a train to Potsdam in the morning, see some sights, stay the night and rent a car in Potsdam to continue on our trip?
3) get on a tour from Berlin that takes us to Potsdam in a day

I guess my main question is - is there ample parking in Potsdam for a rental/is it worth it? We like to meander so I'm suspecting we'll need to stay a night to see the sights of Potsdam (the two main palaces, the town, maybe the brewery). Forgive my ignorance - we were last in Croatia where parking was a real issue and we don't want to get the car earlier than we need to but we don't want to be dragging luggage on the train for one night either (I tend to overpack).

Your comments are welcomed (other than comments about me overpacking!!!!)
