Seeing the sights of Potsdam

A relaxed day in the neighbouring city

  • Glienicker Brücke
  • Kolonie Alexandrowka
  • Schlosspark Glienike

For this tour, plan in a full day.

Potsdam’s famous UNESCO World Heritage cultural landscape comprises a breathtaking complex of palaces and parks including Sanssouci, Glienicke, Babelsberg, Sacrow and Charlottenhof, as well as Lindstedt Palace, the New Garden, the Bornstedt Italianate village and the Russian Alexandrowka colony. So there’s a lot to see in one day – and that’s easiest on a coach or bus tour. The threehour “Alter Fritz” tour [1] offers an informative insight into many of these different sites. If you prefer a hoponhopoff tour, take the CitySightseeing Potsdam [2] and take the chance to spend for more time at the sites you find especially fascinating before you carry on with one of the next coaches. And to combine sightseeing with the experience of travelling in classic vehicles, the Kaiser Tour Potsdam [3] offers tours in vintage buses, coaches and cars.

When you tour Potsdam, remember to view the Lindenstraße Memorial [4] at an authentic site commemorating victims of political violence. The memorial recalls victims both in the Nazi era and the former GDR, and acts as a reminder of the continuity and change in political persecution and violence in the twentieth century. To round off your tour, explore the newly opened Museum Barberini [5]. This  attractive Italianate town house is now home to modern art, major Impressionist works, and the Hasso Plattner Collection of art from the former East Germany. The museum also showcases modernist works by American artists, and post1989 paintings.
