Details

Highlights:
  • Disover the pretty town of Potsdam, stroll through the beautifully landscaped gardens of Sanssouci Palace
  • Explore the Dutch quarter, with its charming red-brick houses
  • Visit the grounds of Cecilienhof Palace, scene of the Potsdam Conference deciding Europe`s fate after the Second World War
Potsdam's magical landscape might look like a blessing from nature, but it's actually the result of hundreds of years of human endeavor: landscape artists, architects, and gardeners toiled in pursuit of paradise on Earth and created a realm fit for their kings.

Our walk takes you past the dreamlike castle of Babelsberg and up to the lakeside Marble Palace with its Greek temple ruins. See the idyllic wooden houses of the “Russian village”, before exploring the quaint Dutch quarter. In Cecilienhof Palace the guide will describe how the cruel realities of 1945 shattered this tranquil world: see where an American president, a Soviet dictator and a British prime minister sealed the fate of Germany and Europe, and where political opponents of the East German dictatorship were imprisoned. Your tour ends at the delightful, 18th-century Sanssouci Palace, where you can either explore at your own leisure for the rest of the day or decide to accompany the guide back to Berlin.
