What makes this tour special
Escape the crowded streets of Berlin and venture to Potsdam on this VIP tour.
Depart from your hotel and enjoy the comfortable drive through fascinating East Berlin.
Visit the Schloss Cecilienhof Palace where Churchill, Truman and Stalin partitioned Germany in 1945.
Explore the Russian colony of Alexandrowka and see the beautiful Dutch quarter.
Pass the infamous Communist Statsi Prison, The Orangery andenter Sanssouci Palace.
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, this treasure is as fascinating as it is beautiful.
Begin your tour at the majestic Schloss Cecilienhof Palace, where Churchill, Truman and Stalin shaped and partitioned post-war Europe and Asia in 1945. Next explore the 18th century Russian colony of Alexandrowka and its 13 wooden houses; see one of the best collection of Dutch buildings outside of Holland. Pass the feared East German Stasi Prison, which cruelly housed political prisoners secretly for decades. Finish your private, relaxed tour at the Orangery Palace and the undisputed jewel of Potsdam: Sanssouci Palace – marvel at its stunning Rococo architecture. A private transfer will then whisk you off your feet and return you to your accommodation in Berlin.
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. We built this tour because it invites individuals a speedy and comfortable way to explore Potsdam's palace.
