Description

The Prussian kings ruled Berlin with pomp, grandeur and an iron fist, but Potsdam is the place where they really left their mark. Spectacular palaces, endless gardens, gushing fountains, winding waterways and faux Greco ruins compose this summertime playground of royal proportions – a worthy rival to the splendour of Paris’ Versailles if ever there was one.

After a short train ride from the city centre we’ll spend the day taking in the big-hitters, including Frederick the Great’s pleasure palace, Sanssouci, his boastful Neue Palais and the Schloss Cecilienhof, where Churchill, Truman and Stalin carved Berlin and Germany into four.

Be prepared to venture off the beaten track and into some of the hidden corners of Park Sanssouci and the Neuer Garten, too.

At the end of the day we’ll stop on the edge of the Havel river and sip on a cold beer or several, courtesy of the bankside brewery The Meierei. And if you’re up for a swim, bring your trunks – one of Berlin’s best swimming lakes, Heiliger See, is a stone’s throw from where we finish.

Brilliant
Our guide is Preston and he is a walking encyclopaedia . He shown us around with with a well planned route. Thank you very much Preston.
potsdam tour was excellent
Amazing tour out of Berlin
The most wonderful thing about this tour was Preston - he has this amazing catalog of information about everything (not just Potsdam), and I learned more on this tour than anywhere else. The weather was perfect, so we did a fair amount of walking through the parks and Potsdam (which ended with swimming in a lake and enjoying beer). I would recommend this tour to anyone hoping to get out of Berlin and learn some history!
Preston was just a great guide.
His knowledge of German history and enthusiasm as well as his sense of humor have all made our Potsdam experience an unforgettable one. The tour was incomparably underpriced! Thank you so much Preston.
Our experience with LikeALocal/Brewer'sBerlinTours was terrific! Our guide, Holly, was very informative and friendly. It was great to see Potsdam through a historical lens, and very nice to have someone guiding us a long, so that we didn't have to look up everything on our own. Would highly recommend! Thanks :)
I went on the 6-hour Berlin tour with Asoka and my experience was great! She kept my attention all the time with her enthousiasm when she gave historical background and she could answer all the questions I had along the way.

Regarding the potsdam tour, I really enjoyed the nice tour given by Victoria, she gave us good background and it was great to spend a day in this nice area, especially in the Sanssouci park!
