What to expect

You start by taking the train from the TV Tower shop for the 25 km journey to Potsdam, where the bikes are waiting for you. In 6.5-7 hours, including transport time, the tour covers about 16 km (10 miles). However, Potsdam is also quite flat with lots of sites and stops.

Here are some of the many reasons why you’ll love the Gardens & Palaces of Potsdam Bike Tour:

  • Realizing that with its 20+ palaces, numerous parks and gardens, unique WWII and Cold War history, and distinct present-day flair, Potsdam is far more than the “Versailles of Berlin”, but rather earning its UNESCO World Heritage status in many ways.
  • Appreciating the power, lifestyle, and grandeur of the Hohenzollern legacy through their various lavish gardens, parks, and palaces.
  • Understanding the impact the Potsdam Agreement (signed at Cecilienhof) had on Europe to close out World War II and foreshadowing an era of tension and distrust in the ensuing Cold War. Entry and audio guide into Cecilienhof Palace are included and there will be plenty of time to explore the interior!
  • Comparing the Potsdam of today - a vibrant university city filled with creative minds and energy - against the backdrop of life under communism behind the Iron Curtain.

At the end of the tour you will take the train back to the bike shop at the Alexanderplatz.
