Truly a unique experience, walking from palace to palace in this extra-ordinary garden. Statues, fountains and all sorts of medieval finery make this a very special place.

Fine park with numerous palace constructions, fountains, gardens and arbors. It is very well entered in the surrounding landscape having an appearance of the wild wood. It is possible to walk some hours, at all without visiting palaces. It needs to be visited. The only shortcoming - lack of fountains with drinking water.

We took the RE1 from/to Friedrichstrasse in Berlin. Just half and hour and covered by an ABC Berlin transport pass. Potsdam station misled us into going out the wrong (North) side and we ended up walking from there through old Potsdam (not that interesting) and into Sans Souci park. It's a lovely mix of formal gardens and palaces to much... More

There is seriously so much to see here you could take half a day at least. There are a few castles dotted around the park, including a couple at the west end, a Chinese House, a botanical garden and palm house, an orangerie and finally Sanssouci Palace. There were plenty of places to stop and take photos. Take some food... More

If you will stay in Berlin more than three days you should reserve your one full... More

This makes for a great day trip out of Berlin and the gardens and palaces are quite beautiful, however if you've seen other palaces in Europe you aren't missing much by skipping them here. That said, we had a lovely (albeit very long) walk through the park during our visit and it's a pleasant place to spend time.
