Berlin – Discover Beautiful Potsdam – Private Full Day Excursion ( 8hrs)
Starting from Berlin
Let yourself be enchanted by the marvelous world of the Rococo Potsdam.
Situated only 45 minutes from the centre of Berlin, Potsdam-the former residence of the Prussian Kings invites you to escape the German capital’s hectic atmosphere by enjoying some special history and the beautiful architecture of Rococo and Baroque:
To get a first impression of Potsdam you will start with a short tour through Potsdam, with explanations of your experienced driver guide and then head off to the Sanssouci Gardens. Take a stroll through the park and feel the royal spirit by marveling over the castles and more. Afterwards you will visit the famous Palace Sanssouci.
No other palace is more closely connected with the personality of Frederick the Great than Sanssouci. The name Sanssouci – “without care” – should be understood as the aspiration and leitmotif of the king, because it is here that he most preferred to withdraw from the world with his dogs. In the end, Frederick the Great’s summer residence was both, a favourite place and an important sanctuary for him in difficult times.
The location of the palace on the celebrated vineyard terraces and the originally preserved, 18th century interior decorations permit today’s visitor to become immersed in the world of the philosophers from Sanssouci. The rooms are marked by elegance and tasteful displays of splendor. It is interesting that the king desired to be buried in a grave on the highest vineyard terrace. Even in death, he wanted to be near his Sanssouci. His wish, although quite belated, was finally fulfilled in 1991.
