 - Explore the eighteenth century Dutch Quarter and its magnificent red brick neighbourhoods
 - Walk where Frederick the Great stepped in the Sanssouci Palace

Potsdam is a city from your dreams - its endless castles, palaces, gardens and lakes served as the home of Kings and Emperors for three hundred years. It was finally given UNESCO status in 1990, after the fall of the Soviet Union. Full of incredible history, from Prussian royalty to the cold war, the capital of Brandenburg is as fascinating as it is beautiful.

The tour includes an exploration of the grounds of Schloss Cecilienhof Palace, where Churchill, Truman and Stalin shaped and partitioned post-war Europe and Asia in 1945. Wander the idyllic roads of the Dutch Quarter, explore the Church of Peace, and the grounds of the Marble Palace. The enlightened side of the Prussian state, where blood mattered less than duty, will again be on your mind as you appreciate the rococo architecture of Frederick the Great’s summer palace: the Sanssouci Palace .
