A lovely place to visit

We didn't do the tour, opting to enjoy the gardens and views in the sun. The palace is very grand and worth a look!

This palace is undergoing renovation but is still open to the public. One acquires timed tickets in the large shop nearby. We were given audio guides in English which we found excellent. I throughly enjoyed seeing the vision of Frederick the Great having visited Sans Souci some years ago. The Neues palace is much bigger and there is a lot... More

When in Potsdam, it's worthwhile to visit this palace, which is impressive and has a obvious grandeur.. inside, in some spaces, the architecture is quite intriguing, with odd twists.. there is classic beauty, of course, but also a lot of weirdness.. The surrounding park is lovely.. and the Sanssouci palace is close, both can be visited in the same day..... More

The inside is quite small compared to what I expected but it was nice, short explanations in the audio guide , it was a lot of fun to spend some time there.

Again, we enjoyed it with a guide, who was well-informed, passionate about the subject and made the visit so much more enjoyable. A must-see!

It looks like the whole park has a bit of neglection issues. The restoration i pretty bad and for some places they put a picture of a sofa where the original was supposed to be. Other cases out of 6 chairs 1 was original and the rest looked liked a bad restoration job.

As for the palace itself, it's nice to look at, but I found the tour to be quite boring. Not much history or interesting stories to it. Just an average. The most fun part was probably when they required you to put on their super giant slippers over your shoes (to protect the floor). However, I just wanted to point... More

Unfortunately the palace is being renovated. We did not go inside the musem, but even walking around this palace is very enjoyable. Let the beauty come into you. Sit down on the grass en enjoy. We loved walking around.

Entry to this palace was included with our ticket to Sans Souci, but be sure to stop first at the ticket office (to the left behind the palace) to confirm and use the toilets! We did not have a guided tour and enjoyed going through ourselves with the included audio guide which was interesting. Even our teenager liked it! Some... More
