City Sightseeing Potsdam Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Get to know the city of Potsdam and its top attractions in convenient and economical fashion on this entertaining and educational hop-on hop-off tour.

    It all begins with a hop-on, of course, at any of the eight stops. Board one of the red, open-top buses and enjoy the view with a live commentary of interesting facts and stories from an expert guide who knows the city inside and out. Learn about the history and happenings of Potsdam, the capital city of the German state of Brandenburg, as the bus rolls along from one location to the next. Hop-off at any of the attractions for a closer look, then hop back on when it’s convenient. 

    Discover the historical city center, the Russian colony Alexandrowka and the Dutch Quarter, and visit popular palaces like Sansoucci Palace, one of the largest UNESCO World Heritage sites in Germany; New Palace, the largest and most impressive palace ensemble in Sanssouci; the small, neo-classical Charlottenhof Palace, also in Sanssouci Park; and Orangery Palace, built in the style of the High Renaissance and commissioned by King Frederick William IV.

    Also, visit the Cecilenhof Palace, where Churchill, Truman and Stalin wrote world history when discussing how to partition Germany. Hop off between the former East and West Berlin, on the Glienicke Bridge connecting Potsdam to Berlin, where Cold War spy exchanges routinely took place.

    Other top attractions include the jungle landscape of Biosphäre Potsdam, with over 20,000 beautiful plants, exotic animals and an hourly storm complete with thunder and lightning and Studio Babelsberg, the oldest large-scale film studio in the world.

    A sightseeing tour of Potsdam has never been easier — or more fun — than this hop-on hop-off bus tour of the city. Experience Potsdam in this unique way.

    We travelled to Potsdam for a day trip, leaving the hectic pace of Berlin for a bit. Offered tickets for this ride as soon as we left the station, we decided to take up this option. It was a great way to see the sights...More

    I strongly recommend that anyone going to Potsdam put aside at lease 3 day. There is a lot to see. We chose the guide tour which was only €2 more than the hop on hop of tour, but gave full access to both. Very knowledgable...More

    Hop On Hop Off seems to be taking advantage of the fact that this is possibly the best way to see Potsdam -- with absolutely terrible service. The buses were constantly running late (waiting over 15 minutes at each stop past the designated time.) In...More

    It's hard to avoid these guys waving leaflets at you as you come out of the station in Potsdam, and 15 euros is a good investment - you get to see the whole place (which is quite spread out, especially if you want to see...More

    Great way to get around Potsdam and get some history. The free headphones and narrative are a very nice touch (different languages). We got on and off a couple of times and it was worth it!

    We found that the tour buses stopped running around that time _- the driver will announce that its the last bus, and if you get off you have to make your own way back to town. That was in April, maybe they run for longer in... More

    I think so, there's a stop near there I think. You'd have to ask the driver about getting back. (We had enough time to get off and tour SansSouci)

    Yes, it's directly outside, opposite the road from the main entrance. The people handing out leaflets & selling the tour inside the station will direct you, but you can't miss it.
