During a lunch break in the Dutch Quarter you can enjoy a festive lunch in a stylish, cosy restaurant. After lunch there is a short walk through the baroque centre of the city, ending in the famous gardens of Potsdam, the Sans Souci Park! Here, the guide will tell you anecdotes about the garden architecture, the old trees in the park and the different palaces you can see from the garden. Surely you will visit the wine- and figmountain which leads to palace Sans Souci. On top you will be shown the grave of Friedrich the Great!
