This full-day Potsdam excursion takes you to Berlin’s neighbouring city, a unesco world heritage site, with a private local expert. You’ll explore the splendour and stories of its beautiful royal palaces and gardens, including a visit to Sanssouci Palace and Park, the magnificent summer palace favoured by Frederick the Great.
During a tour of the Palace, you will learn 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 the popular palace buildings and world-famous landscaped gardens, this history tour also includes many more special sights. Visit the Alexandrowka colony, a unique example of 19th Century Russian culture (also known as Potsdam’s Russian Quarter), and the Dutch Quarter in the remarkable old town of Potsdam, where we finish our tour.
Many of the castles and buildings can be visited with or without a guide, but there’s too much to see to fit everything into one visit. Our guides will advise you and adapt the itinerary according to your wishes, as well as seasonally fluctuating opening times and options.
This private tour has a flexible itinerary and as such it can be adjusted to suit your individual interests. We can also create a programme across several days if you would like to include other tours too.
