City and Palaces Tour Potsdam - Stadt- und Schloesserrundfahrt Potsdam
From US$23.13
Explore Potsdam on this morning tour and discover the Brandenburg town of gardens and royalty with a local guide. Taking in sights of major palaces such as Sanssouci, New Palace, and Schloss Cecilienhof as well as the baroque old town, the tour showcases the most interesting corners of the city as tales of Potsdam’s bygone kings ring in your ears. If you travel in the summer months, the tour also includes a ticket for a Potsdam hop-on hop-off bus tour.
What to Expect
The tour "Alter Fritz" starts daily at 10.30, 11.15 am and 2.15 pm, from november-march only at 11.15 am, always at the main train station Potsdam. In roughly 3 hours our team shows you everything what you need to see, including the major palaces Sanssouci, Cecilienhof and New Palace on short walks. The first 50 min we focuse on the town before we go to the parks, so that everyone can get an idea of the concept the kings and architects once had when they built the city and their residencies. The end of the tour is up to you: Sanssouci, so that you can easily walk back, city center for shopping or straight to the train station. In summer the users of the morning tour later on can use the Hop-on Hop-off City Tour Potsdam for free.

Our first to Potsdam

It was extremely interesting. Occasionally the guide would go off on a tangent, but the tour was really worth it. We saw a lot, learnt equally new things about its history and visited some very interesting monuments.

Excellent guide and just long enough

The guide on this tour was very knowledgeable and provided just enough information. Despite the awful weather, he kept people's spirits up and was extremely helpful. The fact that the tour starts at the hauptbahnhof is a big plus.

Total Waste of Time!

This tour was a joke! 75% of the time it was driving around areas that were not interesting. The bulk of the tour is focused on where the bus could go and NOT what are the main attractions in Potsdam. The palace stops were only...More
