Exclusive Customized Private Walking Tour


Experience the picturesque architecture and gardens of Potsdam on this scenic tour! Visit the venue of the historic Potsdam Conference!

Potsdam is a small city that for some 250 years enjoyed the status of a prominent second residence of the Princes of Brandenburg and subsequent Kings of Prussia, who commissioned magnificent palaces and elaborate palace gardens.

Cecilienhof Palace is famous as the venue of the Potsdam Conference in 1945.
