Luca for guide. Raining but he made it a good day

Fantastic history. Beautiful gardens. Figs growing in archways with glass doors in front. One per tree but grapes growing outdoors. Marvellous terraces with easy to climb steps... read more

The gardens are free, and you can spend easily half the day roaming the lovely gardens. There's more than enough to spend your time with outside, but if it's important to you to go inside the palaces, I suggest to make plans ahead time and book it. We went on the weekend and thought about maybe trying to check out... More

These gardens are a great place to spend your morning walking around or having a picnic. They are quite big so you can easily have a few hours just walking around even without going to the palaces. Getting there from central Berlin is very easy- direct train to Potsdam and then a bus from the train station to the gardens.... More

One of the places to visit beside all those known places in Berlin. Potsdam is also nice and this one is a must see between those two cities. I enjoyed it.

The park exceeded my expectations. Its free to enter and €2 for a park map that includes a short and long walk with numbered information. The gardens are maintained emmaculately and the palaces are well worth a visit albeit we didn't have time to go inside. We only had time to visit for a few hours. If I was going... More

Most enjoyable visit from Berlin. Only thing I should add is when they state a four hour trip remember one hour will be transit time. Our multilingual guide was very knowledgeable with the history and setting. As Potsdam is a very beautiful area and rich in history I would recommend taking the train from Berlin and either do a self... More

We enjoyed being around. The park is beautiful and in a perfect shape. It is all well maintained. But, and that counts for all, read about the history when visiting the park. It all has a meaning and that why very important to understand the existence.

We came here during mid May and the weather was just perfect. The park is large, adjacent to two palaces and carefully maintained. You will want to have enough time (at least two hours) to stroll in the park, take pictures, visit palaces and identify your favorite spots.

Visually this place was very nice. Sort of a miniature Versailles but without the splendor nor grace. Much of the buildings were in disrepair and there was really no excitement for the visit. It was since we are in Potsdam we should visit Sanssouci Park.

Lots to explore. You'll need a whole day if you want to see at least a couple of the palaces and explore the park a little. If you want to do the walk just one way you can catch a city bus back, and the bus is included if you purchased a Berlin welcome card with the ABC zone option.
