The climate of Potsdam (Germany)
Potsdam is located in the eastern part of Germany in the federal state of Brandenburg of which it also is the capital. Potsdam is located on the banks of the Havel River in the vicinity of Berlin. Because there are lots of forests and lakes in the surroundings it is hard to believe this is one of the most densely populated regions in Germany. Many beautiful palaces and castles are situated here, the best known of which include Sanssouci Castle, Neues Palais, Babelsberg and Cecilienhof. The gardens and parks surrounding these castles are also well worth visiting. The largest part of the buildings in Potsdam as well the surroundings of the city are Unesco preservation sites. If you visit Germany we advise you to make a trip to Potsdam. Potsdam has a moderate maritime climate influenced by the Atlantic Ocean. The climate also has characteristics of a continental climate. Extremes in weather such as storms, hailstorms and heavy snowfall are uncommon. Larger differences in temperatures between the seasons can be recorded here than in most regions in Germany. With only 590 millimeters of annual precipitation Potsdam is fairly dry.
