Potsdam is a city located just outside Berlin and is the capital of the German federal state of Brandenburg. It is sometimes known as the "Versailles of Berlin" as the area was the formal residence of the Hohenzollern monarchy who ruled the Kingdom of Prussia and then the subsequent German Empire until 1918.
During this guided walking tour, you will explore this beautiful and remarkably well preserved UNESCO World Heritage Site and uncover the history of this fascinating royal city. The walk will take you past Babelsberg Castle to Marble Palace where there are ruins of a Greek Temple. There is the charming Russian themed village of Alexandrowka as well as the 18th century Dutch quarter.
You will visit also Cecilienhof Palace where the infamous Potsdam Conference took place which sought to establish a post-WWII order and shaped the future of Europe. The former East German Stasi prison is also located in the city and you will learn more about the deep rooted state security apparatus in the former German Democratic Republic.
The tour finishes at the 18th century Sanssouci Park and Palace which was the former summer residence of the Prussian king Frederick the Great and built in the Rococo style. You can accompany the guide back to Berlin or stay and explore further this area at your own leisure.
