Potsdam, City of Emperors Tour
A stunning day-trip to probably the most beautiful town in Germany
Seeing beautiful castles is one of the major reasons people come to Europe! Join an expert guide to visit some of Europe’s best – and most famous – palaces and castles.
Often referred to as the “Disneyland palace” Neuschwanstein just outside of Munich is a fairytale come true. King Ludwig may have have been described as mad by his subjects when he made it, but for the stunning views and incredible photographs, you’ll be glad he was.
Of course, Versailles is one of the most famous palaces in history, not only as the home to historical characters like Marie Antoinette and King Louis XVI, but also for its major role in 20th Century history. Hear about the absurdity of the royal court of the French royal family, the days leading up to the French revolution, and why Versailles continues to be important to the French today.
The site of some of history’s bloodiest battles, the Edinburgh Castle is simply magnificent, towering over the city and dominating the skyline. You’ll be enthralled as your guide tells you the unbelievable stories of battle, defense and conquest.
Just outside of Berlin lies the stunning town of Potsdam – home to the Prussian royal family and many of their palaces. While King Friedrich the Great’s summer palace Sans Souci delights, you’ll also hear the fascinating histories of the Cecilienhof (where the Potsdam conference was held at the end of WWII), the Neues Palais (where the declaration for WWI was signed) and the gorgeous lakeside Babelsberg Palace too.
