Full description
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.

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.
