Their decision to choose Potsdam for their meeting was understandable, as already the kings of Prussia elected Potsdam as a residential city and spent as much time as possible there.

Tour description

This day tour gives you a chance to experience the palaces and gardens of Potsdam: UNESCO World Cultural Heritage since 1990. The tour features an interior visit of Sanssouci Palace, a walk through the gardens of Sanssouci and Cecilienhof Palace and a stroll through the old town of the city: the Dutch Quarter. Potsdam has many lakes and the river Havel runs right through the city center. Stunning and unexpected views of parks, lakes and peculiar attractions like the Dragon House in the Chinese Style, a former pumping house in the style of a mosque and even a Russian village will make this day unforgettable.

The tour starts in Berlin. On your way to Potsdam you will encounter the Wannsee lake where Berliners like to crowd the beaches in summer, the Glienicke Palace with two beautiful lion statues and the Glienicke Bridge where spies have been exchanged during the Cold War. Upon request, we can also take you to the site of the infamous Wannsee conference in 1941 or even use a ferry boat to visit Peacock Island with its unique little palace and free-ranging peacocks.

In Sanssouci Gardens we will not only see the palace, but also the tomb of Prussia’s famous king Frederick II, who built Sanssouci palace with its popular postcard motif of the terraced vineyards. Other impressive sights are the New Palace and the Orangery Palace which was built in the 19th century in the style of the Italian Renaissance. On the tour we will also see Cecilienhof Castle where Stalin, Truman and Churchill met in 1945 to decide on Germany’s future.

The tour includes a lunch break in the lovely Dutch Quarter with its many small cafés and restaurants or at Krongut Bornstedt – a beautiful old Prussian building complex.
