Exclusive AIPC Potsdam Full Day Tour

Departure by bus from the Meliá Hotel
Departure time:      09:00
Time of return:       17:00
Price                      € 50 including lunch

Visit of the summer residence of Frederick the Great: walk in the park and visit the Neues Palais, the last great Prussian baroque palace completed under Frederick the Great in 1769. 
Following the terracing of the vineyard and the completion of the palace, Frederick turned his attention to the landscaping of the greater vicinity of the palace. 3,000 fruit trees were planted in the park and greenhouses and nurseries laid out, producing oranges, melons, peaches and bananas. Statuary and obelisks were also erected, with representations of the goddesses Flora and Pomona. Frederick had several temples and follies erected in the same rococo style as the castle itself. 
Afterwards we visit the Dutch quarter, a unique ensemble of buildings in Europe. It was built in the period from 1734 to 1742 for Dutch craftsmen who were invited to come to Potsdam by King Frederick Wilhelm I, the Soldier King.

Before lunch we will pass by the Russian colony Alexandrowka and Brandenburg Gate Potsdam.

In the afternoon, we visit the Potsdam's quarter known as the Shipbuilder's Lane (Schiffbauergasse), next to Tiefer See. This is the place where Prussian Hussars blew their shrill whistles, the great steam boats of the Havel River were built and teeming fish hatcheries were operated on the banks of the lake. Nowadays, the twelve hectares propped on the waterside offer creativity at its finest: the art and cultural scenes meet high-tech enterprises as exciting history meets a trend-setting future.
The newly-constructed Hans Otto Theater is surrounded by historically preserved and renovated buildings such as the Laundry, the Machine Hall, and the Hussar Stables, which have become residences for both art and artists.

Gallery Hopping in Berlin

Walking tour departing from the Meliá Hotel
Departure time: 10:30
Time of return:  13:30
Price                 € 30

Visit Berlin’s exciting gallery neighbourhoods:from hundreds of galleries we will select the most current and interesting trends. On this tour you will visit established and young upcoming galleries and art spaces in Mitte (so called “Scheunenviertel”, the former Jewish neighbourhood), around Checkpoint Charlie or in the brand new gallery area Tiergarten around Potsdamer Strasse.

In Mitte, for example, gallerist Judy Lybke with Eigen+Art, one of the best known galleries dealing with the Leipziger Malerschule. Their most prominent representative is Neo Rauch, whose works are in demand and - depending on the size - achieve results into the millions. Barbara Thumm or Carlier Gebauer with galleries next to Checkpoint Charlie and once pioneers of the Berlin art scene in the 90ies, have in the meantime become global players of the art business. 

Today, the German capital has become the most important contemporary art spot in the world. Galleries from other cities, such as London’s very successful gallery Blain Southern open new branches in Berlin to provide their artists the right forum in the place to be.

Choice of neighborhood and galleries will be depending on the program of the Galleries. Be surprised!
