This full-day excursion takes you to Berlin’s neighboring city of Potsdam with its beautiful royal palaces and gardens. One of the highlights is a visit to Sanssouci Palace, the magnificent and original favorite summer palace of Frederick the Great. During a tour of the Palace, you will learn a lot of interesting facts and countless anecdotes about the “Old Fitz” and its era of enlightened absolutism, in which Prussia rose to become a major European power.
Whether it is at the New Palace, Cecilienhof Country House, or Sansoucci’s Art Gallery, Potsdam is full of testimonies of Prussia’s splendor and glory. In addition to representative palace buildings and world-famous garden art, this history tour also includes special features such as the Alexandrowka colony, which is a unique example of 19th Century Russian culture, and the Dutch Quarter in the remarkable old town of Potsdam, where the tour comes to an end.
Many of the castles and buildings can be visited with or without a guide, but there can never be enough time for everything. Our guides will advise you and adapt the daily routine optimally to your wishes as well as seasonally fluctuating opening times and options.
