Stop At: Sanssouci Palace, Maulbeerallee, 14469 Potsdam, Brandenburg Germany

Sanssouci was the summer palace of Frederick the Great, King of Prussia, in Potsdam, located nearby Berlin. Sanssouci is notable for the numerous temples and follies in the park.

Duration: 2 hours

Pass By: Glienicke Bridge, Konigstrasse, 14467 Potsdam, Brandenburg Germany

The Glienicke Bridge is a bridge across the Havel River in Germany, connecting the Wannsee district of Berlin with the Brandenburg capital Potsdam. It is named after nearby Glienicke Palace. The current bridge, the fourth on the site, was completed in 1907, although major reconstruction was necessary after it was damaged during World War II.

During the Cold War, as this portion of the Havel River formed the border between West Berlin and East Germany, the bridge was used several times for the exchange of captured spies and thus became known as the Bridge of Spies.

Pass By: Dutch Quarter, Mittelstrasse, 14467 Potsdam, Brandenburg Germany

The Dutch Quarter/Holländisches Viertel is in Potsdam, a neighborhood, consisting of 134 red Dutch brick buildings, almost all of which have been renovated. It was built from 1733 to 1740 and designed by Jan Bouman following the order of Frederick William I of Prussia.

The Russian colony Alexandrovka is located in the north of Potsdam. King Frederick William III of Prussia had it built in 1826/27 for the last twelve Russian singers of a former choir of 62 soldiers.

Due to the family and friendly relations between the Hohenzollern and Romanov houses, the colony was named a memorial to Tsar Alexander I, who died in 1825. As part of Potsdam's cultural landscape, the colony is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Pass By: Schloss Cecilienhof, Im Neuen Garten 11, 14469 Potsdam, Brandenburg Germany

Cecilienhof Palace is a palace in Potsdam, Brandenburg, built from 1914 to 1917 in the layout of an English Tudor manor house. Cecilienhof was the last palace built by the House of Hohenzollern that ruled the Kingdom of Prussia and the German Empire until the end of World War I. Wellknown for having been the location of the Potsdam Conference in 1945, in which the leaders of the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom and the United States made important decisions affecting the shape of post World War II Europe and Asia. Cecilienhof is also UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1990.

The Ruinenberg is a hill in the Bornstedt borough of Potsdam, located north of Sanssouci Park. In 1748, the Prussian King, Frederick the Great, had a water tank with a capacity of around 7,600 cubic metres built on top to supply the Sanssouci water features, and had it decorated with artificial ruins. From 1841 a surrounding landscape garden was laid out at the behest of King Frederick William IV of Prussia, according to plans designed by Peter Joseph Lenné.

Pass By: St. Nikolai-Kirchengemeinde, Am Alter Markt, 14467 Potsdam, Brandenburg Germany

St. Nicholas Church in Potsdam is a Lutheran Church located on the Old Market Square in Potsdam. The central plan building in the Classicist style and dedicated to Saint Nicholas was built to plans by Karl Friedrich Schinkel between 1830 and 1837. The tambour of the 77-metre-high church that towers above the roofs of the city was built between 1843 and 1850. Its construction has been made by Ludwig Persius and from 1845, Friedrich August Stüler.

Towards the end of the Second World War, the church was hit during the British air raid on Potsdam and subsequently badly damaged by Soviet artillery fire. After many years of rebuilding the church was re-consecrated in 1981 by the Evangelical Parish of St. Nicholas, Potsdam, and, today, is open to visitors. In addition to the normal church services, concert events are also held in the church.
