Opt to stay in Potsdam and explore independently or return with your guide
What to expect
Start your trip outside Berlin’s Hackescher Markt Station. Join up with your guide and take a 15-mile (24km) train journey outside the city center to Potsdam, once the home to German royalty. Stop by the palace of Cecilienhof, the site of the famous 1945 conference between the United States, Soviet Union, and the United Kingdom, where Truman, Churchill, and Stalin would seal Germany and Europe’s fate for the 20th Century, laying the groundwork for the Cold War. Continue to King Frederick William II’s Marble Palace, with its recreated Greek temple and scenic lakeside setting. From there, make your way through the 18th-century Nauener Gate and into Potsdam’s quaint Dutch quarter. Break for lunch at your choice of several cafes in Potsdam’s town center. Stop off for a German beer or try some traditional coffee and cake. Once you’ve refueled, make your way through Potsdam’s own Brandenburg Gate (built before Berlin’s) to a UNESCO World Heritage Site: Frederick the Great’s Sanssouci Palace and Gardens. Your walking tour finishes next to the Sanssouci Palace. Your guide then takes you on public transportation back to Berlin or, if you prefer, you can stay in Potsdam on your own to enjoy more of the gardens, visit the inside of one of the palaces, or even stay for dinner.

An interesting tour
Dec 2019
I did a guided tour of Potsdam from Berlin with one of the city tour operators. I'm glad I did it that way as I got to see different areas of Potsdam which is much bigger than I thought actually. The guide did I bit too much talking about the palace and the king for my own liking but you certainly get your money's worth that way! What I would have liked it the chance to take a couple of photos of other places along the way (such as the 'bridge of spies', the Dutch quarter and the Russian houses and the old KGB prison.

Fantastic tour of Potsdam.
Oct 2019
The Discover Potsdam tour really was a fantastic experience and I would 100% recommend it. Our Tour Guide was Rob McCracken and he could not have been more knowledgeable or sensitive to our group needs. Rob is a history graduate and has immense depth of knowledge, I felt we only tapped the surface of the information he was able to provide. Rob navigated us to Potsdam via train & bus, saving us vast amounts of time researching the local transport routes. He took the trouble to find out about each member of the group and made sure everyone was present and okay at each stage. The actual tour when we arrived at Potsdam took in all the main sites and was extremely informative, enjoyable and fun, despite the rain at times!

There was a well timed morning break with a comfort stop and the opportunity to purchase a coffee, then after further sightseeing and a short bus trip we had lunch in a beautiful area of Potsdam. We enjoyed the food, tip: go in the restaurant the guide goes in, they know the best ones!

Certainly don't forget your camera/phone and comfortable trainers/walking shoes. Time well spent, you will enjoy this well timed tour of beautiful Potsdam. Thank you Rob for enhancing our trip to Berlin and making it so memorable.

Excellent tour
My girlfriend and I visited Berlin in October 2019 for 4 nights. If you have a bit of time in Berlin I would highly recommend a trip to Potsdam and this tour was an excellent way to see the best of what Potsdam has to offer.

Our guide (Rob M) was excellent; Very friendly, extremely knowledgeable about the history of the area, made the tour very interesting and answered all our questions with enthusiasm.

Potsdam itself was absolutely beautiful and had an interesting and varied history. The tour took in all the highlights and there was the option to stay on at the end of the tour to explore further if you wished.

Tips:
- Buy your zone A-C day travel card (approx €7-8) before the tour and just validate it on the day
- My tour ticket went to my junk inbox so if you don’t receive a confirmation, check there!

Potsdam Walking tour
Oct 2019
We enjoyed our tour with Gregor who really gave us an extended lecture on the Hohenzollern family and the rise and fall of Prussia. We were left in no doubt about his admiration for Frederick the Great! There is a lot to get round in a short time, but I had hoped to see a bit more of the buildings round San Souci Palace
