  • From Berlin: Discover Potsdam Day Tour

    3. From Berlin: Discover Potsdam Day Tour

    Berlin without Potsdam is like Paris without Versailles - leave Berlin without a trip to its royal residence, and you can't say that you've seen it all. Potsdam's fairy-tale landscapes are inviting and playful, and make any walk a delightful experience. The palace of Cecilienhof, built in a country house style from 1914 to 1917, is not only memorable for the Potsdam Conference of 1945, where an American president, a Soviet dictator and a British prime minister sealed the fate of Germany and Europe. It is also the last palace built by the Hohenzollern Dynasty. There you will also see the lakeside Marble Palace with its Greek temple ruins. Another dreamlike spot is Babelsberg castle with its surrounding park. What are an idyllic Russian village, beautiful towers and churches from the Italian Renaissance and an 18th century Dutch town doing here? We will give you historic information o...

I thank him for his interest and for allowing our group to join his as our tour guide did not turn up. Thank you also to the lady who did the ringing around to get someone to be our guide, much appreciated.

George was excellent. He knew the history of Sachsenhausen thoroughly and brought in many details when answering questions. He was passionate about the importance of remembering and keeping memorials in place and often would remind the group of the horrors mankind continues to inflict on each other since WW II through today. The tour is a somber reminder of past events and George kept a perfect pitch of describing and remembering. Thank you.
