What You Can Expect

Best Potsdam Day Bike Tour

Potsdam Day Bike Tour

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 Cecilenhof 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.

Our guide was very good. We had a small group and beautiful day. The bikes were easy to ride and the perfect way to experience the extent of Potsdam. The lunch venue was a good choice too. Overall very enjoyable and informative. Couldn't ask for more.

Craig, our guide, was enthusiastic, informative, inclusive and it was an all-round fantastic day. We saw a lot of Potsdam, giving us a taster of what is worth returning to. Lunch in a Bavarian pub in the Danish Quarter gave us good food and a suitable rest before continuing. I would highly recommend this trip and we're thinking of returning with our children. Thanks!

Marc with a 'C' is a top class guide. Very knowledgeable and really good company. This tour was our highlight of the Berlin visit.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Great tour! The bike path is gorgeous, and it doesn't require you to be an avid city cyclist. Our guide Brian was awesome, very entertaining and informative. Even though we only went into one palace Cecilienhof, the biking was so enjoyable I felt busy all day. Good weather probably makes a big difference for this tour, but I had a ball. Will seek out other Bike tours from the local tour company in the future!

What a fabulous experience , Craig provided a wealth of information which helped us to understand the history of Potsdam. Would thoroughly recommend this tour. Cycling was easy and a lot of the tour was in palace grounds too.

Lovely tour. We had Craig leading a group of about 15 of us around Potsdam. He was super sweet, and got to know everyone on the train ride there, which helped all of us to get to know each other. Potsdam was gorgeous and weird and Craig had some great informative nuggets for us. We had perfect weather for biking that day. Do it!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

We had a beautiful sunny day to take the train out to Potsdam with a mixed group of adults and children with our bike guide, Craig. This is an amazing way to see this historical and highly unusual architectural city. Our guide was very knowledgeable of the history of Potsdam from the Prussia leaders to the WWII take over by the communist. If you have just a few days in Berlin, I highly recommend this tour.
