Description

Join this tour for an adventure through the fairy tale gardens, lakes and palaces of the Prussian Kings, German Emperors and Soviet Commissars of Potsdam. Located just 30 minutes away from Berlin, the city is a World Heritage Site and it is no small wonder. Not only is it incredibly picturesque with many manicured gardens, statues and water fountains dotted over hundreds of green acres and various palaces, but it is brimming with an equally fascinating history. You will visit the manorial residence of Germany's last Kaiser, Wilhelm¬ II, used by Churchill, Truman and Stalin during the Potsdam Conference. Discover the conversations that sealed the fate of Cold War Europe for the next half century. Ride through the Dutch Quarter, built up by the infamous 'Soldier King', known for the giant men he collected for his showcase military regiments. Continue to the stunning Sancoussi Palace of Frederick the Great and see his final resting place Discover the forbidden town used by the Soviet Secret Service until 1994, the ruins of a KGB jail and the Glienick Bridge, used by the CIA and KGB for spy swaps, including U2 Spy Plane pilot Gary Powers. See the mammoth New Palace, with over 200 rooms and 400 statues, built to celebrate the end of the Seven Years' War, in which Prussia ousted Austria from its centuries-long role as the dominant power in German affairs. See the Roman Baths, the Chinese Tea House and more.
