Marvel at the majestic castle of Babelsberg. Visit New Garden, home to the Marble Palace and Schloss Cecilienhof.

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.
