Duration: 8 h
Enjoy a relaxing and harmonious journey through cultural, historic, art- and architectural time during our tour through Potsdam. During our visit you will see and know about Sanssouci - the big, little palace. "Sans souci," or without care, is what Prussian King Fredrick the Great wished to be when he had his summer residence built in 1747. It was intended to be a small affair, only 12 rooms, located on a vineyard. But the place is anything but tranquil these days - Frederick's favorite palace has become the main tourist attraction in Potsdam.  Next you will visit to Babelsberg Castle Park which is the World Heritage Site. Frederick the Great ignited a building boom in Potsdam that resulted in 17 palaces and castles. These are usually surrounded by wonderful parks and garden. Most of these palaces and parks have been awarded World Heritage status by UNESCO. Continue our visit you will see the City Palace - home to the state parliament. Also you will see the St. Nikolas Church - dizzying heights. This impressive domed building for a change is not a palace but a church. St. Nicolas Church was constructed from 1830 to 1850 according to plans by Karl Friedrich Schinkel, the Prussian star architect of the neoclassical era. With a height of 77 meters the domed-church distinctly defines Potsdam's city center. Ofcourse you will see the Dutch Quarter and its charming town houses with small cafés and shops that is very popular with tourists and Russian Colony "Alexandrowka" Also you will see the Cecilienhof Palace - World Historical Site. The idyllic country house residence was originally built for the Prussian crown prince. In 1945, it came into the world's focus as Josef Stalin, Winston Churchill and Harry Truman held the Potsdam Conference. It's where the leaders of the Soviet Union, Great Britain and the United States took important decisions affecting the shape of post-war Europe. During your free time you can visit to Babelsberg where you touch of Hollywood and where Tom Cruise, George Clooney, Tom Hanks, Matt Damon, Bratt Pitt and other have stood in front and behind the camera in Potsdam. The Babelsberg film studios were founded in 1912 and still rank among the biggest in Europe. Or visit to relatively expressionistic Einstein Tower. The solar observatory was built in 1924 to prove Einstein's theory on relativity. Today the building has become a trademark for Potsdam as a scientific hub- boasting 50 universities and institutes. After free time we return to Berlin.
