Here are the 10 best restaurants in Potsdam.
Located in the heart of Park Sanssouci, in the exotic Dragon House, is the charming Drachenhaus café-restaurant. The original building was constructed in 1770 as a Chinese miniature palace inspired by the Ta-Ho pagoda in Canton, and now it acts as a haven within the park, serving coffee, homemade cakes and seasonal cuisine. Drachenhaus is the wonderfully located, tourist and local favourite near Sanssouci Palace.
