Defiantly a place worth visiting!! The gardens are absolutely beautiful!!! You could wonder around through them all day. The buildings are amazing and jaw dropping with the sheer size and beauty of them. A must add to any itinerary.

Trees are bundled in wooden boxes to protect them. Fountain frozen over enjoyed by some ducks and swans. The rhododendron bushes are the only things providing any green space. Walked to New castle was a nice stroll. Saw l'Orangerie on way back to main Schloss. Schloss seems tired site.

If staying in Berlin, this park alone makes the trip to Potsdam worthwhile on its own. Basically this is a number of palaces and gardens contained on one site. Throw in to this are unique follies dotted around the park like the windmill, Roman baths, gothic church ruins and a golden Chinese house. A small botanical garden is also in... More

I can't even describe how much I love this park. I have visited it soooo many times!!! And I'm always overwhelmed! Every single time! Beautiful every time of the year, with sunshine or with snow.. :) Ideal for long walks! It's the perfect place to free your mind and admire the nature!

What a magical place! Well worth a visit. So big and full of so many beautiful sights :) The perfect place to stroll around and take a picnic lunch to sit in one of the lovely spots on the grounds.

Sanssoui Park is a bit of a walk from Potsdam station (you can get there fairly quickly using the S-7 line from central Berlin) but there are buses from in front of the station which take you to the entrance. Even in winter first sight of Sanssouci Palace above the tiered steps with vine and fig trees is impressive. The... More

A sunny cold day in December. This is my second visit to the park. Nothing impressive. Fountains are inactive. Large areas with nothing special. The chinese house looks poor. And the general feeling is that the park is neglected. German Versailles? German joke.

I am surprised that no one mentioned the need to get tickets in advance or as soon as you get to Potsdam. We had a leisurely lunch on a Tuesday, however by the time we got to Sansoucci palace at 3:15 the tickets for the day were sold out, so we just walked around the grounds. Tickets were also sold...
