Description

On this 6.5-hour tour from Berlin, explore Potsdam’s many sights. Start the tour at the main entrance of the TV Tower in Alexanderplatz. From there, take the train to Potsdam. Once there, you will leisurely explore the various palaces and gardens of Potsdam and Sanssouci, covering about 10.5 miles (17km) in roughly 4.5 hours. Explore the exterior of the famous Prussian palace complex of Sanssouci. Additionally, we will see the Chinese Tea House, the New Palace, and the Orangerie, as we cycle through the beautiful gardens within this massive city park. Then make your way through Potsdam’s historic center, including the Dutch Quarter and Potsdam’s own Brandenburg Gate. Next is a cycle through the beautiful New Gardens to the Cecilienhof Palace, where Truman, Stalin, and Churchill concluded the Potsdam Agreement, finalizing the plans for a post-WWII Europe. Finally, explore the area’s extensive Cold War history with a visit to the no-man’s land between West Berlin and East Germany and over the Glienicke Bridge where Cold War spy exchanges routinely took place.
