Tour 1 has ideal family ingredients for those preferring a leisurely pace (12km). Cyclists are led from Schiffbauergasse at Tiefer See to Jungfernsee and then back via the Babelsberg Palace Park. Villa Schöningen, Glienicke Park & Palace and the idyllic Peacock Island are perfect for breaks along the way. You cycle through the Sea Gate at Sacrow and experience a Venetian gondolier on a ferry. Having completed your island excursion you head for the St. Peter and Paul Church on Nikolskoe and finally you get to the sunbathing areas in Park Babelsberg. Weather permitting it's perfect for listening and going for a swim.

Admittedly, the second tour is a bit more demanding (23km), but its water views make for its special appeal: initially the pictorial route takes you through Babelsberg Palace Park directly at the Tiefer See to the Chaple of Klein-Glienicke and then along Griebnitzsee through the Forest Glienicke to the historical Stüler Church at Stölpchensee. Past the Small and the Great Wannsee you then make your way to the Liebermannvilla, to the House of the Wannsee Conference and do a little detour to Peacock Island. On the way back Glienicke Park and Palace are perfect for some meditative moments and finally there is the finish in Schiffbauergasse. This day really moves Potsdam to the Mediterranean!
