Sightseeing Tour of Potsdam

We had a great day doing a sightseeing tour of Potsdam. From the line of the Berlin Wall on the road which had separated East from West, what used to be Russian soldier barracks, a red-brick Dutch Quarter which is now shops and accommodation for all nationalities, gardens, parks, lakes and palaces-Potsdam has a bit of everything! The tour bus had headphones and all I had to do was plug mine into the side of the bus and select “English” as my language. We had approximately three stops on our hop-on, hop-off tour of this historic city. We wandered amongst majestic palaces, sprawling vineyards and colourful gardens. Water fountains soared above us and trees formed a leafy canopy above our heads as we walked over the cobblestones on our adventure. We took the sightseeing bus back to the city centre and had chocolate and marzipan torte’s with apple mineral water (apple juice mixed with mineral water) and a Fanta. We huddled on our bright orange cushions under the great umbrella as rain drops fell and thunder clashed above our heads. An adventurous and thrilling day in Potsdam!
