Tips

Impressive architecture and a gorgeous park complete with castles. Things don't get much more grandiose than in Potsdam. Starting at the lovely Brandenburg Gate, you'll visit Sanssouci Park, where Prussian architecture stands regally amid luscious green woodlands. Most people make just a quick stop to Sanssouci Castle, but in this tour you'll meander through the park taking in the scenery and wonderful architecture, as well as visiting a shiny Chinese teahouse and the inner, mechanical workings of fully functioning mill. End up in Potsdam's charming residential neighborhoods where you'll see some reminders of the fact that Potsdam was once in communist East Germany.

If you want to spend less time in Sanssouci Park, it's possible to skip the Orangerie Castle and Mill by walking straight from Sanssouci to the Chinese teahouse. Wear comfortable walking shoes.
