Less than 10 kilometers from Potsdam, Caputh House is located on the banks of the Havel River. This early Baroque building is the only surviving palace building in the Potsdam cultural landscape that represents the era of the Great Elector, Frederick William of Brandenburg. His second wife, Dorothea, had Caputh expanded into a luxurious summer residence after 1671. The small country house is best known for its unique Tile Room, which Frederick William I (the Soldier King) had installed around 1720 with more than 7,500 Dutch tiles. The original ceiling decorations with paintings and stuccowork are preserved in nearly all of the living quarters of the Electress Dorothea. The house interiors are designed with magnificent paintings, lacquer furniture and faience.

We offer the following group tours:

At some palaces, we offer a surplus fee up to a specific number of participants for the second guided tour. The surplus fee flat rate cannot be booked as an individual service.

    There is no minimum number of participants required for a group tour.

    Guided tours can be booked in a variety of languages. The bookings of a respective language are carried out subject to availability of tour guides and cannot be guaranteed.

    We offer a 10 % discount from the group price for the groups accompanied by a guide licensed by the SPSG. The discount does not apply to group bookings / group tours with audio guide.

    Special arrangements for groups outside the scheduled opening hours are possible on request. In addition to the group fee for a guided tour, extra charges apply for a special opening.
