My boyfriend is moving to Potsdam (Potsdam, in Brandenburg, Germany–not Potsdam, New York or Potsdam, anywhere else). He goes there on Sept. 1 to take a 2 year job at the Max Planck Institute.
We’ve got a problem that we’d love some help with. We’ve been looking for someone who speaks English to help set my boyfriend up with a place to live. We can find plenty of English-speaking rental agents and websites offering apartments in Berlin, but we can’t seem to find anyone to help us in Potsdam.
If you know of anyone who could show us apartments there, we’d be very, very grateful. We’ve checked out the on-line listings ourselves, but neither of us knows any German. (Well, I know “weinerschnizel” and “fahrfegnugen,” and “glockenspeil,” but that doesn’t count for much when doing anything practical in Germany, unless you’re interested in a musical sausage that’s fun to drive.)
We would both be very, very grateful for any help you could give us!
