Full description
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.
