Enjoy a 6-hour tour from Berlin to the incredibly picturesque Potsdam. With many palaces, lakes, manicured gardens and water fountains dotted over hundreds of green acres, it is easy to forget that Potsdam is brimming with an equally fascinating history. Join us for the day on an unforgettable trip just outside of Berlin. Come see why the palaces and parks of Potsdam were designated a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1990.Description
Stroll around the Dutch Quarter, an ensemble of red-brick buildings that is unique in Europe. The infamous 'Soldier King', Frederick William I, (renowned for the giant men he collected for his showcase military regiments), had the houses built in the middle of the 18th century to accommodate Potsdam's new community of Dutch artisans.
See the stunning Sanssouci Palace, favorite residence of Frederick the Great, which is set in beautiful parkland scattered with temples, churches and follies.
After crossing the Glienicke 'spy swapping' Bridge, we visit Cecilienhof, the manorial residence of Germany's last Crown Prince, which was used to host the Potsdam Conference in 1945. We describe the discussions that took place between Churchill, Truman and Stalin, which were to seal the fate of Cold War Europe for the next half century.Highlights
