Potsdam: Private City Highlights Tour in a Vintage Minibus

1. Potsdam: Private City Highlights Tour in a Vintage Minibus

Discover the different facets of the small but historically important city of Potsdam. The city is not only a Prussian residence and Garrison Town, but is also one of the birthplaces of European cinema and gained great importance in the 20th century. Explore the city and learn about its past on board of a modern Soviet vintage minibus. Departing from Potsdam Central Station or your hotel, head towards the famous film studio Babelsberg. Visit the historic site of the Potsdam Conference, Cecilienhof Palace. Next door at Hiroshima-Nagasaki Square, visit the former villas of the historic figures Truman, Churchill, and Stalin. Then, head to the world-famous Glienicke Bridge, aka Bridge of Spies, which was used for agent exchange and features in the Hollywood movie of the same name. Continue the tour and pass by the former Soviet KGB district, for decades a "forbidden city" in the center of Potsdam. Then, stroll along the Russian colony of Alexandrowka before heading to the UNESCO World Heritage Site Park Sanssouci, the favorite residence of the Prussian King Frederick the Great. Visit the stunning New Palace, a symbol for the rise of Prussia to a European power. Find out about the significance of the palace in regards to World War I. Next, stop at the “Rechenzentrum” Potsdam, a cultural center in a GDR building with a 70-meter-long mosaic depicting motifs of the space race. Right next to it is the controversial construction site of the Garrison Church. Your final stop will be at the Old Market, the historic center of the city. Marvel at the fascinating architecture of the St. Nicholas Church, the City Palace, the Old Town Hall, and the Barberini Palace before returning to the meeting point where your tour ends.

Enjoy a comprehensive tour of Potsdam, including round-trip transfers from Berlin and a guide and driver exclusive to you. Following a pick-up from your hotel, transfer by private vehicle and drive through the lakeland borough of Wannsee en route to Schloss Glienicke and the Glienicke Bridge, site of spy swaps during the Cold War. Continue to Potsdam for a tour of the town that served as the residence of Prussian kings and German emperors of the House of Hohenzollern for 3 centuries. Marvel at the majestic castle of Babelsberg. Visit New Garden, home to the Marble Palace and Schloss Cecilienhof. Admire the lakeside Marble Palace and learn about the Potsdam Conference that took place at Schloss Cecilienhof, when the leaders of the United States of America, Britain, and the Soviet Union decided the future of Germany after World War 2. Next, go to the Russian colony of Alexandrowka and see 13 wooden houses built in the 1800s for the Russian singers of the First Prussian Regiment of the Guards. Continue into downtown Potsdam for lunch (own expense). Then, see historic sights such as St. Nicholas Church and the Old Town Hall. Admire Potsdam City Palace, partially reconstructed in late 2013 and now home to the parliament of the federal state of Brandenburg. End with a look at the Rococo architecture of Sanssouci Palace, built during the reign of Frederick the Great. As a private tour, you can choose the attractions that most interest you, and enjoy the full attention of your guide at all times. Palace opening times vary according to the day of the week, so your choice of palace will depend on the day of your tour. For example, tours can include Neue Kammern or Neues Palais (where Emperor Wilhelm II signed the Declaration of War in 1914) at Sanssouci Park instead of Sanssouci Palace.

Our guide Holger gave us a lot of information in great detail about the role of Potsdam after the war and during the time of reunification. The story of the old Fritz and King Wilhem IV was not neglected either. Overall, a very professional guided tour through the history of Potsdam.
