    What to Expect
    The tour "Alter Fritz" starts daily at 10.30, 11.15 am and 2.15 pm, from november-march only at 11.15 am, always at the main train station Potsdam. In roughly 3 hours our team shows you everything what you need to see, including the major palaces Sanssouci, Cecilienhof and New Palace on short walks. The first 50 min we focuse on the town before we go to the parks, so that everyone can get an idea of the concept the kings and architects once had when they built the city and their residencies. The end of the tour is up to you: Sanssouci, so that you can easily walk back, city center for shopping or straight to the train station. In summer the users of the morning tour later on can use the Hop-on Hop-off City Tour Potsdam for free.

    We arrived at the rail station in Potsdam and looked at tourist bus options which consisted of either a hop on hop off tour or a three hour guided tour starting in 10 minutes. With our Berlin Visitors Card we got a discount and opted for the latter. Three enjoyable hours later
