About the Tour

In past centuries Potsdam was considered one of the most important Prussian cities. Today, surrounded by 19 lakes and the picturesque river Havel surprises the visitors with history, breathtaking Sanssouci Palaces and numerous gardens and parks. 

The damages caused by the allied bombings in 1945 and the subsequent Potsdam Conference  held in the city straight after the war, have completely changed its character. During the guided tour of  2.5  hours, we will delve into this fascinating history of ancient splendor, the destruction during the war and the impressive reconstruction in the German reunification era.
Our tour starts Am Alten Markt square next to the 16 m high obelisk devoted to the 4 brilliant Prussian architects, next to the representative St. Nicholas Church (St. Nikolaikirche).This is where we will learn about the Hohenzollern dynasty, under which the city flourished in culture, art, and architecture. Afterwards, we will continue covering the most important points, such as Saint Peters and Paul’s Church, enchanting Dutch Quarter, Brandenburger Street and some historic city gates. We will talk about famous habitants of Potsdam: Voltaire, Humboldt and Einstein. The tour concludes in front of the emblematic Sanssouci Palaces – a great symbol of the affection for art, architecture and nature of its founder Prussian King Frederic the Great.
