On this day trip we will explore the former residence of the Prussian kings together. An important garrison town in the 18th century, Frederick the Great had a summer residence built here from 1745, which he named “Sanssouci”. We will also explain why there are potatoes as well as flowers on Frederick’s grave.
Severely damaged by Allied bombing raids during World War II, Potsdam lost its direct connection to West Berlin in August 1961 when the Berlin Wall was built. The Glienicke Bridge became a symbol of division and the exchange of agents.
Discover with us beautiful Potsdam with its more than 1000 years of exciting and varied history. We will visit the Glienicke Bridge, Cecilienhof Palace, the Dutch Quarter, the Brandenburg Gate (yes, Potsdam has one too) and, of course, Sanssouci Palace and Park.
Please note! We do NOT enter the various castles during the tour! The castles have separate entrance fees.
