Until I moved to Potsdam I had never heard of this park despite the fact that it is a world heritage site. It is soaked in history but in a very unpretentious way. It has two stunning palaces, wonderful statuary, topiary and gardens and is worth a day of anybody's time except maybe in November and February.

You do not need to pay to wander around the gardens around the enchanting palace. A lovely terraced garden with fountain. It also has a huge windmill and an Orangerie nearby as well as other big palaces at the end of the park

A very nice park in central Potsdam including several buildings you have to have visited to know more about Potsdam and its history. There're a lot of famous and "must haves" you should visit like the Sanssouci palace and the New Palace. My persoanl favourite is the Church of Peace - usually not that crowded by tourists and a place... More

What an amazing park. Covers 287 hectares, and the way the gardens are laid out is amazing, over such a large area. You can walk between the palaces, and other buildings with the complex, enjoying them as you walk. We came down on the train from Berlin for the day, and went to most of the buildings within the park.... More

These are superiorly planted gardens. Rows of lovely planting, trees, and the landscaping ground plan creates wonderful unfolding vantage points as you stroll through the gardens,. You do not need to enter the buildings, then it is free or a donations. If you go inside I find the grotto room relatively wild in it use of shells and such everywhere.

When I visited Sanssouci Palace five years ago, I had no idea how large the grounds were. We spent three hours and only covered half. We strolled beside the botanical garden on our way to the new and old palaces but only had time to duck into the small greenhouse devoted to palms before closing time. Our path led past... More

Very interesting place to visit. The park itself is rather huge and the view was amazing. Feel like I was in Italy because of the artistic feeling of the carvings. I really liked the carvings which I think is one of the selling points to visit it. If you are taking the hop on/off bus, it is one of the... More
