Accommodation and arrival information
The nearest airports to Potsdam are Berlin Tegel and Berlin Schoenefeld.
It is easy to get to the university campus from Berlin if you are staying near Berlin Zoo station. There is a direct train (about 35 minutes' ride) from Berlin Zoo to Potsdam Golm, where the university is. You can find all train connections from this
The upside of staying in Potsdam is that it is really beautiful and green in summer, with lots of lovely parks and beautiful palaces. It's better than staying in Berlin if you like peace and quiet and like walking in greenery.
The upside to staying in Berlin is that it's a bigger city, with all the attendant conveniences, and is also the coolest city in the world. It's very easy to get to from Potsdam, though, so you can get the best of both worlds if you like.
If you decide to stay in Potsdam, we recommend Hotel am Luisenplatz
If you decide to stay in Berlin, we recommend the following two hotels:
Somewhat more upscale Hotel Abion
; somewhat more minimalist Hotel Tiergarten
These hotels are near my own apartment, and if you stay here, I (Shravan) can accompany you to the university on August 31st.
For those on a budget, see here (Berlin)
and here (Potsdam)
