>> Tour Description

A city of kings and emperors, Potsdam housed Prussia’s royal House of Hohenzollern (lit: ‘High-Taxer’) family on the edge of Berlin until the fall of German imperialism in 1918.

Often referred to as Berlin’s equivalent of Versailles, Potsdam has a collection of impressive palaces and gardens – mostly originating in the 18th and 19th centuries. 

Although Potsdam did not make it out of the Second World War unscathed, it retains much of its old-world splendour – visible in its luscious lakeside parks, castles, and its charming historical centre.

Come and join us for a day out in this beautiful city, boasting architectural wonders of Baroque, Rococo & Neo-Classical style. European in the truest sense of the word.

Best experienced during the warmer months – from May until November.
