Splendid royal residence with a private guide


Potsdam is located about 30 kilometers (18 miles) from Berlin city center and is surrounded by numerous beautiful lakes. It is one of the few german cities that enjoys a population growth probably due to its newly found fame as a center for scientific institutions.

Initially a garrison city and residence of the Hohenzollern dynasty it largely maintained its original character.

Places of interest during a visit to Potsdam are the reconstructed Royal Palace (today Landtag), the Royal Horse Stables, Nikolai Church, St. Peter and Paul Church, the Dutch quarter.

The highlight is the group of palaces within park Sanssouci. Especially Sanssouci Palace constructed by order of Frederic II. - remains a Rococo jewel.

Also worthwhile is the Palace Cecilienhof where the famous "Potsdam Conference" took place in the summer of 1945.

A Recent Review of this tour

We are so grateful that Hilke was available to guide us again after the two full days we spent with her in Berlin in October 2017. She was again a brilliant guide - this time to Potsdam- deeply knowledgeable, sensitive to our interests and needs, energetic and warm. We feel we have made a good friend in Germany. Thank you!
