Moving to Potsdam - looking for information on the area

1 post in this topic

Hi, my family (myself, husband and our two young sons) are looking at the possibility of moving to Potsdam at the start of 2017.  We would be moving for a job opportunity for my husband.  We are currently living in South Western Germany (south of Stuttgart). I know nothing about northern Germany and would love any insight into the Potsdam area.  The new job would be located in Potsdam and I we would prefer to live near the job and not in a large city (i.e. Berlin).  I am an avid biker and my two sons are Kindergarten age.  I primarily am interested in knowing the following:


- What areas of Potsdam are best for a young family?  (i.e. walkability, access to Kitas and schools, bike paths and easy public transportation options)

- What is the average cost of living in Potsdam (yes, I know this is a hard one...)

   i.e.    What is the avg rent for a three bedroom house with a garden?



Thanks for any advice / information / opinions, etc!
