Big park just outside Potsdam, dotted with palaces and accompanying buildings. The park itself is easily free to enter and it's accesible by bus from centre of city, with the main bus stop just outside Sanssouci Palace. There's also the main car park (paid) with big number of spaces, which fill up rather early in the morning. You can also... More

The Sanssouci park is one of the nicest places in Germany. The park has lots to see, including the palaces, windmill and several historical buildings. Start in the Sanssouci palace, where you can buy the ticket for the hole complex.

It is about an hour on the train from Berlin, and yet it is worth a visit. The park is beautiful, with lots of galleries and palaces. The galleries are quite impressive. Be prepared to spend in the park about 4 hours. (I been there 3 hours and still didn't see all of the palaces and galleries). It is very... More

We went on our own on the train from Berlin friedenstrase station and it's about 50 minutes. You can get bus 956 directly to the castle for free or join a tour, but this is a scam. We were sucked in! The gardens in the castle are beuatiful, make sure you walk right down to the waterfall and take photos... More

I liked this place, so huge and so calm. Very nice palace, but the gardens are even more beautiful. I was visiting Berlin for 6 day and spent half of one day in Potsdam. Potsdam is nice but small city, and these gardens are the most interesting thing to see there. And don't rush, allow yourself at least 2-3 hours... More

The Sanssouci Park offers so many museums and attractions that one can easily spend the full day here and still not see everything. This is probably the most concentration of attractions in one location in all of Potsdam all encompassed here in the park. There are fountains, a maze of shrubs, trails and paths leading to more attractions and statues... More

A gorgeous place to view with beautiful buildings, sculptures, fountains, gardens, art and more but best be well prepared to walk. I think touring the grounds was more walking than even at Versailles.

A "must see" for visitors to Berlin. About 45 minutes by S-Bahn train, and very easy to get around by bus from Potsdam station. The palaces were really good, and not that expensive. The park itself is very well maintained and presented.

Arrive by car and pay for parking. Then wait in line to pay for your ticket. (Best to buy a ticket for all attractions so you only pay once, though even with that ticket you may have to go to other locations to get a separate (included) ticket with a time on it to enter attractions other than the main...
