What to expect

Potsdam's baroque old town is becoming more and more attractive and lively and, together with its palaces and gardens, makes the city one of the most beautiful capitals in Germany. A lot of things that had decayed could be reconstructed, some things that were destroyed in the war, such as the city palace, were even rebuilt in their external form. Discover the new, old Potsdam on this guided walk.

The tour begins at Potsdam Central Station (North exit), from where you can immediately see the brand new Brandenburg State Parliament, the former city palace. Over the Lange Brücke it goes over the Havel to the reconstruction of the old market with Schinkel's Nikolaikirche, the state parliament, the old town hall, the obelisk and much more. The other stops on this city walk are:

  • the new market and the again excavated city canal,
  • the basin square, which has not had any water for much longer than the city canal,
  • the Dutch Quarter, in which almost never Dutch people lived,
  • and the Brandenburg Gate, which is older but far less famous than its Berlin counterpart.

Finally, it goes to Luisenplatz not far from the Park of Sanssouci, where the tour ends (and you can continue on your own if you want).
