Excursion to Potsdam:

The excursion will give the conference attendees and their accompanying persons the opportunity to visit one of the highlights in the metropolitan area Berlin/Brandenburg, the city of Potsdam. It will take place on Thursday, September 11, 2008, from 14:00 to approx. 18:00.

In Potsdam, the Royal Seat of the Brandenburg-Prussian rulers, master builders and artists created a fascinating ensemble of palaces, parks and gardens. This unique park landscape was designated as a "world cultural heritage site" by UNESCO in 1990.

The excursion has to be booked through the online registration at time of registration. An additional fee of 30 € will be charged for participation in the excursion.

In Potsdam you will enjoy a guided tour through either the "Sanssouci Palace" or the "New Palace" and you will have some time to stroll through the beautiful park. Before the buses head back to Berlin we will have a guided bus tour visiting some of Potsdam's other highlights (Russian Colony Alexandrowka, Dutch Quarter, etc.).
