What people are saying about Potsdam

Initially, the Berlin travel system is a bit confusing but very easy to adapt to it and understand what goes where! I recommend getting the travel pass especially if you plan to visit different attractions. The public transport is not extremely busy (almost at all times you have where to sit in the underground), much more relaxed than London public transport!

Getting a transport pass in advance is paramount for a relaxed trip. Buying the pass online was easy, and finding the office at the airport as well. The guide and the map I received with it were good help. I would highly recommend to use this service.

Great for transport in Berlin. Map provided also very helpful. Used the discount at numerous museums and we were helped by the 2022 City Guide. This led to significant savings.

Very useful for transport, once we collected the voucher, which is also valid online, we started to tour Berlin comfortably and offers good discounts for each attraction.

Super easy. Just get on and ride with the tram, U-bahn bus or S-bahn.
