Seminaris SeeHotel Potsdam
During your trip you will stay at the Seminaris SeeHotel Potsdam, located directly on Lake Templin. The 225 comfortable, modern rooms are equipped with comfortable beds, shower or bathtub and WC, hairdryer, TV, safe and free WLAN. In the morning you strengthen yourself for the day at the rich breakfast buffet.
After the bike tour you can first have a drink in the bar or on the terrace with a wonderful lake view, before you enjoy the down-to-earth but creative cuisine in the restaurant. You may also want to relax and end the day in the hotel's swimming pool or sauna (not included).
Travel early, because it's worth it. Potsdam, the former Prussian royal seat, awaits you with unique castles and gardens. Use the first day for a first exploration tour or relax on the terrace of your hotel directly at Lake Templin.
Today you will experience Potsdam with its different faces. Over the centuries, architects from all over Europe have left their mark on parts of the city. You cycle through the Russian colony Alexandrowka and the Dutch Quarter. In Babelsberg you will be amazed by the magnificent villas and in the castles Cecilienhof and Sanssouci you can still feel the glamorous history. In the "Forbidden City" , which was once the European headquarters of the KGB, you will learn all about modern history.
In the morning, you first cross the Glienicke Bridge, which used to be used for the exchange of agents between East and West, and thus reach the area between Berlin and Potsdam, which Fontane also traveled. You follow the path along the Havel River to Wannsee Lake. You continue through the Grunewald and on the Havelradweg to Gatow. In Gatow you visit the famous village church from the 13th century. After visiting the castle in Sacrow you cycle back to your hotel.
The first destination today is the village of Caputh. Theodor Fontane was a guest here and Albert Einstein used the place as a summer idyll before emigrating to the USA in 1932. After a stroll through this pretty village on the shores of Lake Schwielow, continue cycling along the lake via Ferch to Petzow. Marvel at the castle, which is characterized by Moorish architecture and the English Tudor style. Afterwards you cycle to the old town of Werder, which is situated on an island. Visit the fruit museum, which tells the story of fruit growing in Havelland. Afterwards, you will return to your hotel in Potsdam on the Havel cycle path.
Take plenty of time today to visit the federal capital Berlin. Discover the Brandenburg Gate, the boulevard "Unter den Linden" and the parliament and government quarter. Walk in the footsteps of recent German history and visit one of the many museums about the fall of the Berlin Wall. The return journey is by bike or comfortably by train (on your own).
Today your star bike tour from Potsdam ends after breakfast at the hotel.
