    What to Expect
    Meet and greet the tour guide and group near the entrance of the TV Tower in Alexanderplatz, a large public square and transport hub in the center of Berlin. After getting fitted for a Beach Cruiser bike and helmet, hop on a train for the brief trip to Potsdam. 

    There will be a brief introduction to Potsdam before beginning the approximately 4.5-hour ride around and through this capital city of the German federal state of Brandenburg. 

    Pedal through the historical city center, the Russian colony Alexandrowka and the Dutch Quarter. Admire the majestic royal residences that were built during the reign of Frederick the Great. There’s Sansoucci Palace, one of the largest UNESCO World Heritage sites in Germany; New Palace, the largest and most impressive palace ensemble in Sanssouci; the small, neo-classical Charlottenhof Palace, also in Sanssouci Park; and Orangery Palace, built in the style of the High Renaissance and commissioned by King Frederick William IV.

    Explore a variety of historical sites and learn the deeper meaning behind each.

    See, in part, the fabulous Marble Palace and visit the Cecilienhof Palace (entry and audio guide included), where Churchill, Truman and Stalin wrote world history when discussing how to partition Germany. Coast along between the former East and West Berlin, over the Glienicke Bridge connecting Potsdam to Berlin — where Cold War spy exchanges routinely took place — and much more.

    There will be time for lunch at a beer garden (own expense) that used to be the old royal dairy. 

    The tour concludes with a return trip to Berlin.

    I don't know when this picture was taken, but when I went to Sans Soucis in May 2018, we were not allowed to ride our bikes in the park. No even pushing them, we had to park them outside the park.

    This was a great day out, and our tour guide was very organised, but all of our stops felt like there wasn’t enough time to see everything. When we arrived at the bottom of Sans Souci, for example, we had only five minutes to look...More
