Full description
Discover over 50 years of Soviet history in the small but historically important city of Postdam. Travel in a modern Soviet vintage minibus. Departing from Potsdam Central Station, head for Bassinplatz Square. Here, discover the Soviet War Cemetery, the final resting place of hundreds of fallen Soviet soldiers. Then head to the historic site of the Potsdam Conference, Cecilienhof Palace. Next door, visit one of the most important Soviet intelligence sites in East Germany and a detention center. Next, head to the world-famous Glienicke Bridge, aka Bridge of Spies, which was used for agent exchange and features in the Hollywood movie of the same name. Your final stop will be the Rechenzentrum Potsdam. Here, admire a huge socialist mosaic which depicts scenes of the notorious Cold War Space Race, before getting dropped off back at the main station.

    The whole trip was perfect all round. A different perspective on Potsdam and its history was explained and documented with a great deal of knowledge.

    As Berliners, we already knew Potsdam very well. On this tour you got to know this beautiful city from a completely different perspective.
