Long walks in the park between palaces

Today we went to Potsdam and spent most of the day walking around the outside of the palaces. This site is a UNESCO site and the outside of the palaces are amazing. It took us most of the day just to walk around the various buildings in the park (most were closed for winter). If we were going to tour inside the palaces, we'd have to allow probably 3 days. The buildings are massive.
To give you an idea of how big, here's a picture of some scaffolding that's in place over [part of the palace for restoration work.
As you can see this is not minor scaffolding, but major construction just to put the scaffolding on.
A lot of other things like statues were boxed up to protect them for winter, but it was still worth the time to go around the park.
We headed into the old part of town about 3.30 and were very tired, so we found a German pub and had a very late lunch or early dinner.
From there we visited the Christmas market and had our last Gluhwein for the trip.
We're just busy packing everything up because we fly out of Berlin tomorrow morning to Edinburgh.
We need to catch our bus at just a bot after 8.00 am, which means getting up around 6.30 am.
