What to Expect
Just 20 minutes away from Berlin you’ll enter the fairy tale-world of the gardens, lakes, and palaces of Prussian Kings, German Emperors, and Soviet Commissars. Experience the best of Potsdam on a 6-hour guided tour.

Potsdam has been listed by UNESCO as a world heritage site. Not only is it incredibly picturesque with its many palaces, lakes, manicured gardens, statues, and water fountains, it is also brimming with an equally fascinating history.

You’ll visit the manorial residence of Germany's last Kaiser, Wilhelm¬ II, which was used by Churchill, Truman, and Stalin during the Potsdam Conference, where the fate of Europe was decided for the next half century.

Ride through the Dutch Quarter, built by the infamous Soldier King, to the stunning Sanssouci Palace of Frederick the Great. This was his residence and his final resting place.

Discover the forbidden town used by the Soviet Secret Service until 1994, the ruins of a KGB jail, and the Glienick Bridge used by the CIA and KGB for spy swaps, including the swap of U2 spy plane pilot Gary Powers.

See where the ceremonial handshake between President Paul von Hindenburg and the new Chancellor Adolf Hitler took place on 21 March 1933 in Potsdam's Garrison Church, symbolizing a coalition of the military and Nazism.

Visit the mammoth Neues Palais, or New Palace, featuring over 200 rooms and built to celebrate the end of the Seven Years' War, in which Prussia ousted Austria from its centuries-long role as the dominant power in German affairs.
