I will be in Potsdam only for a day and a half. I am very curious if anyone knows about how late the shops stay open in the dutch quarter? Also if anyone knows(just in general) how late the shops/restaurants stay open near Park Sanssouci? Thanks a lot!
The part about Schloss Sanssouci:
April 1 - October 31: Tuesday - Sunday, 9am - 5pm
November 1 - March 31: Tuesday - Sunday, 9am - 4pm
What shops around the park?
I understand the opening hours posted above are those of the park itself?
Dutch Quarter: 12-6pm incl. Sundays.
Potsdam's main shopping street is, as far as I recall, Friedrich-Ebert-Straße right next to the Dutch Quarter. I'd guess opening hours are basically the same as everywhere, perhaps 10am - 7pm or 8pm excl. Sundays.
Just any shops around the area. I have never been there so I'm not sure. :( was just trying to get a ballpark figure of how late shops stay open in town( such as souvenir, clothing, cafes,etc.)
Cafés and restaurants will stay open longer of course. Normally shops are open 10am - 8pm, but in Potsdam's case (smaller city) I would expect shops to close one hour earlier.
I think you'll find everything in Friedrich-Ebert-Straße, Brandenburger Straße and the Dutch Quarter.
