Learn about the connections of Soviet history in 3.5 hours and enjoy the highlights of the city. Learn about the enormous importance of Potsdam to the Soviets and hear interesting facts about the Allied victorious conference in 1945. See one of the most important intelligence sites of the Soviets in East Germany and visit the world-famous Glienicke Bridge, Bridge of Spies, used for agent exchange.

Start at Potsdam Central Station and walk to the Old Market. The city center of Potsdam was destroyed in World War II. You will learn more about the reconstruction of the city in socialist East Germany and current reconstructional projects. Then head for the city´s Soviet War cemetery, the final resting place for hundreds of Red Army soldiers.

Then take the bus and go to Cecilienhof Palace, the venue for the Potsdam Conference in summer 1945. After visiting the former KGB district you eventually go to the Bridge of Spies. The bridge once was the border between the East and the West, hence the iron bridge was part of the Iron Curtain.
