Drive from Berlin to the yacht harbor in Potsdam, where you will climb aboard a luxury pleasure boat for a 6-hour tour of the picturesque Havel landscape with palaces, villas, and parks. Experience the famous 5-palace view in the middle of the Havel.
What to Expect
Enjoy a drive in a VW bus to the yacht harbor in Potsdam, where a luxury pleasure boat will be waiting for you. From here you can discover the fascinating palaces, villas, and parks that can be admired from the water.
Pass by the old market with St. Nicholas’ Church and the former shoreline building “Little Venice” on the island of Hermannswerder before seeing the sprawling Babelsberg Park, and the palace with the same name, appear to the right.
Continue on past the villas at Griebnitzsee, which are even more beautiful from the water than on land since the front sides of the houses were not allowed to face the street. You will then reach Großer Wannsee, pass by the former home of Joseph Goebbels on Schwanenwerder Island, and see Peacock Island, which used to be called Caninchenwerder, before the Palace and Park of Sacrow with the famous Church of the Redeemer comes into view.
Nearby, in the middle of the river, you will experience the highlight of the boat cruise – the famous 5-palace view where Cecilienhof Palace, the Marble Palace, Sacrow Palace, the palace on Peacock Island, and Babelsberg Palace can all be seen from one vantage point.
