What makes this tour special

Take a day trip to Potsdam, and discover its rich culture and beautiful architecture. 

 Potsdam is a city from your dreams - its endless castles, palaces, gardens and lakes served as the home of Kings and Emperors for three hundred years. It was finally given UNESCO status in 1990, after the fall of the Soviet Union. Full of incredible history, from Prussian royalty to the cold war, the capital of Brandenburg is as fascinating as it is beautiful.
 
The tour includes an exploration of the grounds of Schloss Cecilienhof Palace, where Churchill, Truman and Stalin shaped and partitioned post-war Europe and Asia in 1945. Wander the idyllic roads of the Dutch Quarter, explore the Church of Peace, and the grounds of the Marble Palace. The enlightened side of the Prussian state, where blood mattered less than duty, will again be on your mind as you appreciate the rococo architecture of Frederick the Great’s summer palace: the Sanssouci Palace
 
 Note: Due to strict policy at Sanssouci Palace, your guide will not be able to accompany you throughout your time here. They will rendezvous with you at the exit.   

What you'll see

Dutch Quarter
A neighbourhood of 169 beautifully preserved red Dutch brick houses, built from 1733 to 1740
Sanssouci Palace
Often described as the Versailles of Germany. It is the former summer palace of Frederick the Great, King of Prussia
