As much as Berlin is commercialized, people many times don't hear about Potsdam which is for me even more beautiful and more amazing city in this part of Germany. Sanssouci Palace is maybe small palace but outside it is like in heaven. I loved very much to see Chinese house in all of its beauty, old windmill and views of... More

Jewel of a palace. A good guide brings it alive and makes the visit interesting, pleasurable an saves you a lot of work, if you are a run-of-the-mill tourist. Really darling of a place.

Breathtaking views gardens, bridges, lakes, birds. Mighty artistic statues all around the gardens and the palace is just beatiful.

Overwhelming wealth and hubris on the part of the builders. The buildings and gardens are beautiful and it is a worth the visit.

We were staying in Berlin and wanted to visit Potsdam under our own steam. Having looked at the transport we saw that we could visit Gleis 17 (see separate review), Max Liebermann Villa in Wanasee (see separate review) and Potsdam on the same day if we made an early start. We got a Small Group All Day Ticket for zones... More

Visited this Palace as part of a Viking Cruise and it was stunning. The guide was first class and we were given a wonderful tour with commentary on this historical place. This is a must see if visiting Berlin.

This is a place of history and beauty. You will see gardens modeled on Versailles, sculptures that speak to your heart and a castle that really does make you feel like there's nothing to worry about in the whole world. Lots to see, make your way through the whole of Potsdam and finish your tour here before going on to... More

The palace is very nice. The problem of our visit was that there was a lot of visitors and we always had to wait the person in front of us. So if someone wanted to look at something more closely and take some moments then others had to wait. But on the other hand the palace was not so big... More
