Take a trip from Berlin on the Potsdam Bike Tour
Potsdam is the top-rated destination for travelers touring Berlin. Located on the border of the capital city, this German town was the site of the infamous Potsdam Conference between Churchill, Truman, and Stalin dissolving Nazi Germany following World War II. During the Potsdam Bike Tour, you will find the Sanssouci Palace, which was once the summer home of Frederick the Great, former King of Prussia. On the grounds of the complex, you’ll see the gorgeous Renaissance Orangery Palace overlooking Italian-style gardens and classical fountains. Ride through spectacular English gardens surrounding the neoclassical Charlottenhof Palace. Cherish the 19th-century Roman baths, built in several architectural styles. And what’s the best way to explore these incredible sights? Speeding along on your bike with a charismatic tour guide on the Potsdam Bike Tour. The Potsdam Tour departs from outside of the TV Tower at Alexanderplatz and lasts for half a day with stops at several popular attractions. At 16 kilometers, the Potsdam Bike Tour is a bit longer than some of our other Berlin tours. However, Potsdam is exceptionally flat, and there will be many breaks for pictures and sightseeing.

This largest of palaces was built by Friedrick the Great to house guests. It's a magnificent way to kick off the tour before riding along the magnificent Sans Succi park.
The most famous and photographed of Potsdam's palaces is undoubtedly Sanssouci Palace. With its unique yellow color, baroque flair, and location atop Sanssouci Park it's a highlight of the tour. We give you time to walk around the former residence of Friedrick the Great.
Windmill? Indeed. There were once numerous windmills to grind grains in Potsdam. We'll see one beautifully restored and you may think you're in Holland.
There are so many palaces and monuments in Potsdam it's hard not to take them for granted. The beautiful Orangerie was built in typical Italian Renaissance style, adding unique diversity to the architecture surrounding Sanssouci Park.
We give you time to get off the bike and explore Sanssouci Park on your own. Grab numerous pictures and soak in the beauty and tranquility where once Friedrick the Great and Voltaire walked.
Potsdam lies in former East Germany. However, when we cross over the Glienicke Bridge - famous for the spy exchanges that took place here during the Cold War - we'll briefly be in West Berlin.
This was the last of the palaces built by the Hohenzollern royal family in Potsdam. You will find out many more details about it though during the tour: admission and audio guide are included with the tour!
We chose Cecilienhof as the palace to go into not just because of its beauty, but because the famous Potsdam Agreement following WWII was signed here. Truman, Stalin, and Churchill arguably started the Cold War with this conference and document.
