This walk takes you through the city centre and seems like a stroll through time. From the main station, the walk leads to the island Freundschaftsinsel – a gardening gem by Karl Foerster. From here you can already see the Old Market. With the St Nicholas’ Church, which resembles St. Paul’s Cathedral in London, the Brandenburg State Parliament, built on the site of the former city palace, the Potsdam Museum and the Museum Barberini, this square combines an exciting mixture of modernity, culture, art and politics.

We continue to the square Bassinplatz. The weekly market as well as the St Peter and Paul Church are well worth a visit. The brick red of the Dutch Quarter shines here from afar. Frederick William I, known as the Soldier King, wanted to bring Dutch craftsmen to Potsdam with this special architecture. Today you can find small cafés, boutiques and the Jan Bouman House here. Afterwards you carry on to Brandenburger Strasse, affectionately called “Broadway” by Potsdamers. Or you can extend the walk and visit the Russian Colony Alexandrovka with its special wooden houses.

From here, it is not far to Sanssouci Park. With its artistic gardens and the summer palace on wine terraces, it tells the story of Frederick II, the Old Fritz. Via square Luisenplatz and through the gate Brandenburger Tor you get back to Brandenburger Strasse. The way leads past the canal and the New Market back to the main station.
