Splendid royal residence private tour with a van or limousine


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.

Coming from Berlin we will cross the Glienicker Bridge, famous for the exchange of spies in the sixties and eighties.

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

A Recent Review of this tour

An unforgettable experience. Hilke is both friendly and knowledgeable. Our day began when she promply picked us up at our hotel. Our very comfortable car and driver were waiting outside. We went over the itinerary, including a stop at Wannsee House that we had arranged by email. The day proceeded with Hilke providing historical information throughout. We had time at the end of the day to see some sights in Berlin that were in addition to the description of the tour. We highly recommend this tour.
