Please make your way to the main entrance of the TV Tower in Alexanderplatz, where you will meet your native English-speaking tour guide and collect your bike for this Potsdam In A Day Bike Tour.
With cushy seats, fat tires and handlebars that come up to meet you, your bike lets you navigate this cyclist-friendly city with the greatest of ease and comfort.
Take your bike with you on the train to Potsdam, only a 20-minute ride from Berlin across the gorgeous German countryside.
Arrive in Potsdam and begin your bike tour, accompanied by an expert guide well-versed on the rich history and modern cosmopolitan identity of Potsdam.
You will cover ten lush and leisurely miles in four-and-a-half hours, feeling the exhilaration of the road without any of the exertion. Tours are suitable for all ages and fitness levels. The tour stops every few hundred meters to discuss the sights and take photos, so you don’t feel any strain.
Bike past Frederick the Great’s former summer palace of Sanssouci, held up by historians as the German answer to Versailles. Peddle through Sanssouci Park and gaze up at the New Palace, the last great baroque palace of Prussia. The Orangerie windmill and perfectly manicured gardens of Sanssouci provide an eyehole into the power and resplendent lifestyles of the Hohenzollern line of rulers.
Ride through Potsdam’s Brandenburg Gate and past the quaint red-brick houses in the old Dutch quarter. See the magnificent Marble Palace reflected in the still waters of Heiliger See.
Enjoy an audio tour of the Tudor-style Cecilienhof Palace, where three giants of history—Stalin, Truman, and Churchill—hammered out over two weeks the terms for the resolution of World War II and the reconstruction of involved nations. Discuss the far-reaching impact of the Potsdam Agreement and its foreshadowing of Cold War tensions.
Ride through the former no-man’s land between West Berlin and East Germany and over the Glienicke Bridge where Cold War spy exchanges routinely took place.
Peddle away from the haunted landscape of division and into the lively heart of this University city, which stands in brilliant contrast to life as it was lived behind the Iron Curtain.
Your tour concludes where it started with a train trip back to Berlin and a drop-off at the TV Tower in Alexanderplatz.
