Know More about this tour

What are an idyllic Russian village, churches from the Italian Renaissance, and an 18th-century Dutch town doing in Potsdam? You'll learn all about the history behind the city of Potsdam on this walking tour, including how the city's landscape changed after World War II.

See the site of the famous 1945 conference between the United States, Soviet Union, and United Kingdom at Cecilienhof Palace. Then pass the reconstructed Greek temple and lakeside setting of King Frederick William IIs Marble Palace. Head through the 18th-century Nauener Gate and into the Dutch quarter.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Potsdam, enhanced by snow, thanks to the great guidance from Tobi. He shared great insights from beginning to end and went out of his way to ensure we all made the most of our time. Even on the rain he filled our time with great insights and genuine conversation. Having done many walking tours I can genuinely say that he’s a credit to you.

    Worth to have a guide on this tour. Lots of stories and learning. Our guide Iörj was fantastic! He supported and payed attention any question from the group. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us.

    I booked a 6 hour Discover Potsdam public tour 2 weeks prior to the tour date. At the meeting point we were advised that the tour had been shortened to 4 hours and this was the first shortened tour. No explanation or refund for the shortened time frame. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative with the sites I visited and happy to answer any questions. However, I felt like I had been left high and dry when we reached the Potsdam gates with no tour of Potsdam as there were several places that were included in the 6 hour tour that I was looking forward to seeing. If I had been advised with enough notice, I would have cancelled my booking and gone with another tour company that offered what they advertised. Deeply disappointed with the way the tour had been changed without any notification or refund for the shortened time frame. The company has now changed the website to offer a 4 hour tour for the same price. I had allocated a whole day to see Potsdam and was disappointed at the way it had ended. Time is valuable while on holidays to make the most out of your experience. The tour company needs to understand that this is not acceptable.

    Our tour guide, Xavier, made this experience a 5 out of 5. There was an elderly couple that were unable to walk at a regular pace. He made sure they were included- the rest of the group understood- so it was fine. The only thing I would like to add to this tour is a visit to the palaces

    Tour guide was great! So knowledgeable and funny, made the trip/ tour worthwhile. It was a great small group, easy to travel by transit and was a leisurely walk through the area

    Lovely gardens and buildings. Jorg had extensive knowledge of the history of Frederick the Great. He was very accommodating to us as we walked slower than the rest of the group. At the end there are options to stay and enjoy other parts of Potsdam or return with the guide.

    Eran, our lead guide, made our tour fun and informative! Potsdam is a beautiful city and Eran, and his assistant, Jorg, were able to communicate the historical highlights and importance of this city - for that we are grateful. We highly recommend this tour and experience.

    We had Vowter (sorry for the misspelling) and he was fantastic! We were his last tour, but he was very friendly and knowledgeable.

    Matti was a wonderful guide. Made us all feel welcomed. Explained the history of things very well. Loved the visuals he brought because it brought the history to life. Genuinely nice person. I highly recommend that you ask for Matti when booking this tour.
