A visit to a wonderful UNESCO World Heritage Site
Visiting Potsdam and its surrounding lakes and gardens is a breathtaking experience. Located about 40 km outside of Berlin, roughly 20 palaces survived the bombings of WWII. Because Postdam remained largely spared as compared to Berlin, this was a perfect place to host the planned "Berlin Conference, " held by the victorious powers from July 17 to August 2, 1945 - hence the Potsdam Conference. Churchill, Stalin, and Truman met in Cecilienhof to seal the fate of a divided Europe for the next half-century.
This will be a tour filled with beauty and excitement as we depict the legacy of the Hohenzollern family with an emphasis on Frederick the Great and his carefree summer palace; SanSouci.
After the division of Berlin, Potsdam lies in the former GDR, and a secret village under the KGB will be established. We cover the horrors from the feard Stasi prison and bring to life the thrilling spy stories and spy swaps that took place on and around the Glienicke.
Tour highligts are;
• San Souci
• Cecilienhof Palace
• 18th Century Dutch Quarter
• Former Stasi prison
• The Church of Peace
• Marley garden
• The Glienicke Bridge
• The new gardens

FABULOUS!! Of the 3 weeks in Europe, with many different guides, Jessica was hands down the best!! She not only worked with us to make a unique tour, but she knew the history/stories and provided suggestions for additional locations that were incredible. She brought visual aids and had obviously done her research! We asked for a detour at the end of our trip for shopping/dining, she provided excellent recommendations and gave detailed, precise, and easy instructions to take us right back to our hotel!
