It all begins with a hop-on, of course, at any of the eight stops. Board one of the red, open-top buses and enjoy the view with a live commentary of interesting facts and stories from an expert guide who knows the city inside and out. Learn about the history and happenings of Potsdam, the capital city of the German state of Brandenburg, as the bus rolls along from one location to the next. Hop-off at any of the attractions for a closer look, then hop back on when it’s convenient.
Discover the historical city center, the Russian colony Alexandrowka and the Dutch Quarter, and visit popular palaces like Sansoucci Palace, one of the largest UNESCO World Heritage sites in Germany; New Palace, the largest and most impressive palace ensemble in Sanssouci; the small, neo-classical Charlottenhof Palace, also in Sanssouci Park; and Orangery Palace, built in the style of the High Renaissance and commissioned by King Frederick William IV.
Also, visit the Cecilenhof Palace, where Churchill, Truman and Stalin wrote world history when discussing how to partition Germany. Hop off between the former East and West Berlin, on the Glienicke Bridge connecting Potsdam to Berlin, where Cold War spy exchanges routinely took place.
