Discover over 50 years of Soviet history in the small but historically important city of Postdam. Travel in a modern Soviet vintage minibus. Departing from Potsdam Central Station, head for Bassinplatz Square. Here, discover the Soviet War Cemetery, the final resting place of hundreds of fallen Soviet soldiers. Then head to the historic site of the Potsdam Conference, Cecilienhof Palace. Next door, visit one of the most important Soviet intelligence sites in East Germany and a detention center. Next, head to the world-famous Glienicke Bridge, aka Bridge of Spies, which was used for agent exchange and features in the Hollywood movie of the same name. Your final stop will be the Rechenzentrum Potsdam. Here, admire a huge socialist mosaic which depicts scenes of the notorious Cold War Space Race, before getting dropped off back at the main station.
Discover the rich history and notable landmarks of Glienicke on a walking tour. Start your tour at Glienicke Palace by meeting your professional guide. Wnder through the beautiful grounds, with picturesque lake views. Next make your way to the Glienicke Bridge. Known as the "Bridge of Spies" during the Cold War years, the bridge was often used as a point of exchange for spies between East and West Germany. The bridge crosses the River Havel and today is the primary road link between Berlin and Potsdam. Stroll through the small village Glienicke and learn more about the Cold War years, and the effect it had on the surrounding area. Discover the park surrounding Babelsberg Palace, followed by lunch at a local restaurant at your own expense.

Take the train out to Wannsee and then just walk a few minutes across the road and you will find the boat ready to take you on a lovely trip around the different lakes. Plenty of space to move around indoors or outside and very good service from the hardworking team serving drinks, food, ice cream etc - not over-priced (or bring your own). Clean toilets - even at the end of the day. Pretty views around the lakes, interesting commentary in German and English.
To safety conditions. Enjoyable. Worth the price. Tour in english and german. Waitresses were overloaded and took ages to be served.
Lovely trip, where you're see the hidden (but wonderful) side of Berlin.
Beautifull ship, good service, fine weather and nothing to complain.
This is awesome experience. I never forget this moments. Thanks
