After meeting your guide at the Brandenburg Gate, you will hop on the train to Potsdam, about 45 minutes away from Berlin. Your first stop will be the Alter Markt (Old Market), where the Potsdam City Palace was rebuilt following its destruction in WWII.
After that, you will take a tram to the beautiful Havel river, from where you’ll have the perfect view of the Babelsberg Palace and the infamous Bridge of Spies, where spy swaps took place during the Cold War. Then, you’ll stroll through the stunning Neuer Garten (New Garden), finding yourself at the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage-listed Cecilienhof Palace. Your guide will tell you how the German Crown Prince lived there before the royal family abdicated at the end of WWI, and how in 1945, Stalin, Truman and Churchill decided the fate of post-war Europe at the famous Potsdam Conference.
After you've seen the English-style Neuer Garten and Cecilienhof, you’ll take a short bus ride into the town center, where you will visit Germany’s largest UNESCO World Heritage site, the incredible French-style Park of Sanssouci, the summer palace of Frederick the Great and one of the finest examples of Baroque architecture in Europe.
