What You Can Expect

Warnemünde Shore Excursion: Private Potsdam Tour

Discover the beauties of Potsdam on your private shore excursion!

After docking at Berlin's Warnemünde port, travel from your cruise ship in a chauffeur-driven luxury car toward Potsdam. During the 3-hour trip to Potsdam, you could drive through the district of Wannsee and see Schloss Glienicke and the Glienicke Bridge, where spy swaps took place during the Cold War.

Arrive at Schloss Charlottenburg where you'll meet your informative local guide. Together, adjust this sample itinerary to suit your particular interests. Listen to your guide share the rich history of Potsdam, which served as the residence of Prussian kings and German emperors of the House of Hohenzollern for three centuries.

Admire the majestic castle of Babelsberg, and visit the New Garden, a large park where the Marble Palace and Schloss Cecilienhof are located. Marvel at the neoclassical lakeside Marble Palace, and see Schloss Cecilienhof, where the leaders of America, Britain and the Soviet Union decided the future of Germany after WWII at the Potsdam Conference.

Pay a visit to the Russian colony of Alexandrowka where 13 wooden houses built in the 1800s for the Russian singers of the First Prussian Regiment of the Guards still stand. Recharge with a lunch break at a local restaurant in Potsdam (own expense). While downtown, you can also view St Nicholas Church and the town hall, as well as the city palace that's home to the Brandenburg Parliament.

You could then explore the Sanssouci Palace and marvel at its Rococo architecture and decor. Palaces are open on varying days of the week so your choice of palaces will depend on which day you take your tour. You may, for instance, visit Neue Kammern or Neues Palais at Sanssouci Park instead of Sanssouci Palace.

Being on a private tour makes it easy to ask your guide as many questions as you like about the sights you see and ensures a more relaxed, intimate experience. Keep in mind that since so much of this tour takes place in castles and parks, there's a fair amount of walking involved.

At the conclusion of your 11-hour scenic and educational tour of Potsdam, you'll be dropped off back at Warnemünde port.
