This relaxed, full day cycling tour takes you from the centre of Berlin either through the Tiergarten or from Viktoria Luise Platz and then west through the City’s affluent western suburbs to the forests to the south-west of the Capital, around Wannsee lake and on to Potsdam, famous for its magnificent castles and parks.
On the way you will cycle through the Grunewald, past Wannsee (where Berliners come to swim and relax), visit the villa which hosted the 1941 Wannsee Conference, ride over the Glienicke Bridge (where spies were exchanged at the height of the Cold War) and see and visit many other sights. Right in the middle of Potsdam is the Sanssouci Palace, the summer residence of Friedrich the Great with its English gardens. We also see the last home of the
Hohenzollern family, Cecilienhof Palace in the New Garden where the Allies held their Potsdam conference in 1945 and reached agreement about the post-war shape of Europe.
Potsdam is also famous for its historic Old Town where you will discover streets, courts, baroque buildings, impressive churches and the Dutch Quarter. Around this area you will find many more ‘international’ sites that reveal something of the openness Potsdam is so famous for: the Russian Colony Alexandrowka, the Bohemian
Weber Quarter, the Swiss Colonist Settlement as well as churches and Italianate villas.
