Panoramic tour of Potsdam and visit of the Sanssouci Gardens

Galerie Photos

Description

We'll leave by coach with local guides who will help you discover the history of Former Prussia and its illustrious monarchs. In Potsdam, the visit will begin with a walk through the gardens at the Sanssouci Palace. You'll walk the flower-lined pathways and staircases leading through the terraced garden to the residence of Frederick the Great, built between 1745 and 1747. The personal tastes of the king had such an influence on the design and the decoration of the palace that its style is often referred to as "Frederician Rococo”.
We'll get back on the coach and take a spin around the Sanssouci Park to admire its fabulous structures before heading to Cecilienhof Palace. Cecilienhof Palace was built from 1914 to 1917 for Crown Prince William and his wife, Cecilie von Mecklenburg-Schwerin, as a gift from Emperor Wilhelm II. After the end of the war in Europe, the Potsdam Conference - attended by Stalin, Churchill and Truman - was held in the palace from July 17 - August 2, 1945. Here, Churchill and Truman also defined the terms of surrender together for Japan.
After our visit, we'll head back to downtown Potsdam for some free time in the Dutch district before returning to the ship by coach.

 

Duration : approx. 4:00

  • Good walking shoes are recommended: walk in the Sanssouci gardens with stairs to climb (approx. 1:00 hr) and a walk in the Cecilienhof gardens (approx. 30min).
