Tour description

Take a day-trip from Berlin and discover UNESCO World Heritage listed Potsdam, all by the seat of your bike! From park lands to alleyways, you're English-speaking guide will recount historical anecdotes as you explore an array of Prussian and Cold War sites.

You'll travel to Potsdam by train with bike's in-tow before embarking on a leisurely ride covering approximately 10 miles (16km) over 4.5 hours. After all that exertion, break for lunch (not included) at a great beer garden that used to be the old royal dairy.

Delight in the sites as you pedal around Potsdam with your English-speaking guide, including:

Sanssouci Palace: Explore the New Palace, originally the work of Fredrick the Great, the Orangerie, the windmill and gardens

Historic Center: Ride through the Dutch quarter admiring the quaintness of Potsdam

New Gardens: View the fantastic Marble Palace before going into Cecilienhof Palace, where Truman, Stalin and Churchill concluded the Potsdam Agreement. (Entry included)

No man's land: Ride between West Berlin and East Germany over the Glienicke Bridge where Cold War spy exchanges routinely took place

This guided bike tour is the ideal way to compare the Potsdam of today - a creative energetic university town - with its contrasting past under communist rule, behind the Iron Curtain.
