From a Berlin Airport to Potsdam, by public transportation

From Tegel (TXL) take Bus X9 to Bahnhof Zoo, change to S-Bahn S7, or RE1, for Potsdam-Hauptbahnhof. Check the trip planner .

From Schönefeld (SXF) there are quite a few equivalent routes. Check the trip planner. Choose "From:  S Flughafen Berlin-Schönefeld Bhf", "To: S Potsdam Hauptbahnhof". For instance, take any S-Bahn in direction Berlin City Center. When crossing the "Ringbahn" (the Circular Line), change to any S-Bahn running clockwise (S46, S41), until station Schöneberg, there change to S1 for Wannsee, change there on the same platform to S7 for Potsdam-Hauptbahnhof. Alternatively, change from Ringbahn S41/S46 to S7 in Westkreuz. Alternatively, take a fast commuter train through Berlin (RE7, switch to S7 in Ostbahnhof), or travel around Berlin (RB 22). Durations are approximately equal. 

For public transportation on any route, get a Ticket labeled "Berlin ABC" (3 Zones) and invalidate/stamp it (!) on the S-Bahn platform, or inside a bus. Cost: about  3.40 Euro.

Taking a taxi cab from the airport to Potsdam will cost about 100 Euros.
