The bus tour which will do you all the main sites in Potsdam plus the railway station when you want to leave is excellent. What makes it even better is the money off you get with a Berlin welcome card. If you buy all three...More

We took this tour on a cold winter's day. It took in all the key places from Glienicker to Sans Souci and the commentary, although a bit flakey, was really interesting. Pretty good value if you have a Berlin card too.

This 20km bike tour is great way of seeing the tourist spots in Potsdam. We rented our bikes at "Paddle Tours" just outside the train station. Great bikes with beautiful scenery, as well as great workout.

Guten Tag! I will be making a day trip to Potsdam from Kiel in the second week of May on a weekday & would love to take the hop-on hop-off city tour. I want to know : 1) what time do the tours begin & 2) what time is the last bus back to the Potsdam Hauptbahnhof so that I can plan my visit accordingly. Danke schön.
