The Albert Einstein Tour


A romantic tour of around Einstein's favourite corners south west of Berlin

In this route of about 35 km we will visit the town of Caputh, where Einstein and his family spend their summers before leaving Berlin, ride along lake Templin, and visit the Island of Werder, where we could stop in one of Brandenburg's finest lakeside fish restaurants or buy locally produced traditional apple wines


Lake Templin and the river Havel

South west of the city of Potsdam lays the pretty and very calm forest and lake area of the river Havel. Today, this beautiful region on the quiet side of Potsdam provides an wonderful opportunity to explore Prussia's history further through its local culinary delights and romantic stories of Albert Einstein and Prussia's Friedrich Wilhelm I, more commonly known as the Soldier King
