Potsdam Walking Tour from Berlin
US$20.03
Overview
Get out of Berlin for the day by taking this 6-hour day trip from Berlin to picturesque Potsdam. Drink in the sights of the baroque palaces, placid lakes, manicured gardens and spouting water fountains of this UNESCO World Heritage-listed spot. Let your guide steep you in the history of the place regaling you with tales from centuries ago all the way up the Cold War.
What to Expect
Stroll around the Dutch Quarter, an ensemble of red-brick buildings that is unique in Europe. The infamous 'Soldier King', Frederick William I, (renowned for the giant men he collected for his showcase military regiments), had the houses built in the middle of the 18th century to accommodate Potsdam's new community of Dutch artisans.

See the stunning Sanssouci Palace, favorite residence of Frederick the Great, which is set in beautiful parkland scattered with temples, churches and follies.

After crossing the Glienicke 'spy swapping' Bridge, we visit Cecilienhof, the manorial residence of Germany's last Crown Prince, which was used to host the Potsdam Conference in 1945. We describe the discussions that took place between Churchill, Truman and Stalin, which were to seal the fate of Cold War Europe for the next half century.

Positive, as the reviewers above have said. You can choose to let the touring party go back to Berlin at the end of the tour and hang back to explore Potsdam.
