The orangery is very nice, you can visit 5 or 6 rooms, one large room with about 50 paintings. But you have to pay 3€ for taking pictures... Entrance fee is also 3€. The view from the top of the orangery is also really nice. But you can see the bureaucracy, there is one spiral stair on the top, where... More

You should wait at the entrance to climb up and see the views and to pay the ticket. The walk through the gardens worth for pictures and relaxation.

A great way to spend some time as you wait for your entry time at schloss sans souci. It is a short walk down from the visitor center through a tree-covered path. There aren't many rooms and each is based on a color of a mineral such as amethyst or lapiz. You may also walk up a spiral staircase that... More

This building was largely a place to store plants. The tour consists of a couple of apartments. It´s between San souci and the New Palace and can be visited on the walk between the two palaces.

This beautiful building is enormous and must be one of the largest orangeries ever built. It does not seem to be open to the public but can be viewed from the outside when waliking round the park at Potsdam. It is beside the windmill and is close to the Schloss Sanssouci
