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...

Sanssouci Palace is a large, single-story villa built by Frederick the Great. It sits atop beautiful a terraced hill at the center of the park. Our guide directed us to the cemetery and amused us with an interesting tale: Frederick the Great, King of Prussia, lies buried beside his beloved dogs in a small plot outside his palace. (He was...

I spent too little time there and would come back. Take a visit of the main palace and don't miss the paintings. Go in summer or fall to see the gardens. Huge place so wear good shoes. Take a guided tour: the history behind is well worth it.

We visited the park, we also wanted to visit the castle Sanssouci, but when we arrived at 1pm, we could only buy tickets for the evening, what a pity. So we walked to the mill, orangery and the park. The mill and orangery are interesting (3€ fee), the view from both is nice, and there are some informative posters in... More

Very impressive, The views were magnificent, the grounds are beautiful. You could get a horse driven vehicle to take you on a tour around Potsdam from here.

>Well worth a visit, don't miss< Our car ride to Berlin took way longer than anticipated, so we decided to drive to Potsdam first (instead to hotel and take a train), glad we did, otherwise we probably wouldn't visit at all. Didn't find the park at first, parked in downtown Potsdam instead. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the... More

We could not visit this attraction because the tickets were sould out. It seems that there is a daily limit for tickets. This was not mentioned anywhere, so we got there and had to go back.

Well worth a visit to this extensive area of royal palaces and ground. Suggest starting a promptly as possible and obtain a timed admission to the Sanssouic Palace. In this area try visiting the picture gallery, perhaps whilst waiting for your admission slot to the palace. One can then wander up through the grounds and end up at the Neues... More

Was lucky enough to go the the evening music concert. Wonderful event with amazing music with the most beautiful back drop. The fire works at the end are some the best I have ever seen. Walking back through the park at night with everything lit up was magical

Most people who come to Potsdam do so for Sanssouci Park. It is amazing. There are tree lined lanes for strolling, small gardens and out buildings beautifully done. The Chinese Tea House is not to be missed. You can pay a few Euros to go inside and if you buy a camera ticket you can use it for a full... More
