During my visit at Sanssouci Palace I experienced racist behaviour of its staff. Having asked about at the cash desk the price of the entrance ticket , the lady from the desk (seeing that I am from Eastern Europe) responded: "You may go to the garden, it is free", then I asked "How much is the entrance to the Palace?",...

I completed the tour with the use of the audio speaker in English. I loved it. It was very informative and interesting. I didn't take many pictures inside. It costs extra to receive permission to do so. My favorite room was the seashell room. The meticulous artwork created using sea shells and beautiful stones is breath taking.

The luxurious lifestyle of the kings can be imagined with the help of having a tour around this marvelous palace. The gardens and statues and the fountains gives a unique insight into the kingdom that dewelled hundereds of years ago.

We found this palace disappointing. The reason was that we were escorted into each room as a party, which meant that there were many people crowding the view and it was hard to see everything in a relaxed fashion. We also had to wait a while to be admitted on a cold day. It would be much better if we... More

Its a treat to be shown around the old palace of Frederick the Great, among the most influential and visionary king in the 18th century and all his personality and ideas are shown off in the palace of splendor. Its not huge, but its effect is. We were there in winter time and I am sure that the garden will... More

We visited the palace area in a cold and rainy day. It was still worth it. A beautiful place with a rich history. Some of the statues were covered to protect them in winter. Overall a nice place that worth a visit.

My wife and I visited Sanssouci Palace as part of a 3 hours 'Alte Fritz' guided tour on 30.12.2015. Although the tour did not include an interior walk-through, the garden and park complex provided plenty of talking points. Attached are some images which speak for themselves.
