Even in mid winter this is a lovely place. The trees are all lifeless and the statues covered but it is still very nice to walk the grounds.

We had a trip out of Berlin to Potsdam and spent some time strolling through these grounds. A beautiful day and stunning surroundings.

We took a tour and spent several hours taking in the castle and the grounds. It is amazing how much history is there and a short bus ride from Potsdam. Would highly recommend taking this tour and spending time there.

One of my favorite places on earth! For several years I've gone to Park Sanssouci, nearly every weekend from April to September. Last year, circumstances made it impossible for me to go at all. My January return to Sanssouci reminded me how important it is to feed my soul with the wonders of the park. Compared to it's glory in... More

Beautiful garden, laid out over several acres. A place to just enjoy being in a well laid out garden that has a good history. In the garden, there is nothing to eat or drink (in the parking lot, you can get some refreshments), . As a finale, there is the Sanssouci palace at the top of the hill.

It was our first visit to Sanssouci. Only the restaurants were open but as everywhere is so clearly signposted it was such a pleasure to walk around the area. It even snowed for us. The buildings are beautiful. We could admire the work done to 'put the gardens to bed' for the winter. Everywhere was quiet and peaceful, mandarin ducks... More

Although we attended during a horrible time of the year for experiencing outdoor gardens, it is obvious this would be a real gem otherwise. The grounds are accessible for free, and go by numerous old palaces and their extensive out buildings. We enjoyed it nonetheless, and would highly recommend during the growing season.

Based on Versailles the Palace and the Garden are breathtaking. Take a guided tour to learn about the history and art in the park! Make sure the weather is nice when you go, there is not much cover during rain.

Took a bahn all the way from the city centre to visit this park but was left disappointed. Renovation was being done and the doors were closed to travellers. The entire park was close to empty although it was nearing the noon, suggesting that it is not such a popular place to visit.
