Guided City Tours


Pavillion on the terrace of Sanssouci

A walking tour is the best way to get to know Potsdam. But we can also take a bicycle tour, drive around town in the car, or even use a boat for a waterfront tour. For groups that come to Potsdam by bus, I suggest a combination of sight-seeing on the bus and a brief city walk.
Whether you’re planning a private visit or a travel business in search of a tour guide for your customers – I look forward to hearing from you!
