Overview
Retrace history of Germany’s kings during this 6-hour guided walking excursion in Potsdam with a small group. Explore the distinguished lineage of this royal city of the German ‘Kaisers’ situated at the outskirts of Berlin, discovering its collection of elegant palaces and castles, baroque-style architecture, and its key role in the events following the end of World War II.
What to Expect
Meet your guide in the late morning front of the Starbucks at Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate. You’ll travel to Potsdam from the city center via Berlin’s public transport system. Please note that public transit tickets are at guests’ own expense.

Learn about the history of this famous royal city from your guide. Originally formed as a “garrison city” during the era of Germany’s Prussian Empire, Potsdam long played host to German Kings and later the Kaiser. As you tour the city’s incredible collection of historic architecture, including stops at the The Dutch Quarter, Neuer Garten and the Bridge of Spies, you’ll also hear about Potsdam’s key role in negotiating the agreements that helped end World War II at the The Potsdam Conference.

Your trip will end at Potsdam’s “Schloss Sanssouci” (Sanssouci Palace), where your guide will share details to ensure you get the best-priced tickets and skip the long lines (entrance at own expense). You’ll return to your starting point in Berlin by public transit at the end of the trip.

Great Potsdam experience with Sam Noble

We've had a great Potsdam experience with Sam Noble from UK. Beautiful views and great storytelling - clearly not the type of guide people fall asleep listening to. Good value for the money despite the fact that the tour didn't include any museum/palace visits.
