That's a beautiful park, with some water ponds. Pay attention to the grapes growing close to the ground! They are juice and sweety!

Nothing to dislike but be prepared for crowds. Spent whole day in the complex & needed at least one more to see everything.

Simply a must see, great park, great castles and the best the park is free of charge. Only minus is the lack of places to get a bite.

The Castles within the park are beautiful. And yes I did say Castles as in plural. There were several within the park. We walked through the whole area and it was quite a stroll but we did it at our own pace.

What a beautiful setting and so full of history! I actually enjoyed Sanssouci more than I did Versailles... Palace, park, gardens and all... Take time to see if you are in the area...

Sanssouci Park is comprised of the sprawling grounds around Sanssouci Palance. It's beautiful and well-worth a look if you're in Potsdam.

we sort of hesitated to visit Potsdam because our time in Berlin is so limited and we wanted to see other places. But we made up our mind and took the train to Potsdam. We rented a bike at the bike rental which is located at the platform 6-7 for 11€ each, headed off to the sancsouci park. We got... More

After visiting to Bavaria, we did not visit the Sanssouci Palace as the admission was expensive. However the park itself is worth visiting. It has vineyard and beautiful gardens. It is also huge that walking from Sanssouci Palace to New Palace will take over half an hour one way. Plus there are other places to see like Orangerie Palace, New... More

Park Sanssouci is certainly beautiful, especially in spring and fall this is an amazing place for a walk. There are lots of must see buildings in the park, however note that if you wish to enter them you need to pay a fee ranging from 2-12 euros depending on the building. This is NOT worth it, the buildings are stunning... More

it will cost you at least 6 euros to park, 12 euros/person to visit a palace that has needed a paint job for over 50 years and on top of that, if you want to take a picture, they ask for more money- 3 euros for a photo permit (have never heard of such a rip-off deal). the interior is... More
