I liked this place, so huge and so calm. Very nice palace, but the gardens are even more beautiful. I was visiting Berlin for 6 day and spent half of one day in Potsdam. Potsdam is nice but small city, and these gardens are the most interesting thing to see there. And don't rush, allow yourself at least 2-3 hours... More

The Sanssouci Park offers so many museums and attractions that one can easily spend the full day here and still not see everything. This is probably the most concentration of attractions in one location in all of Potsdam all encompassed here in the park. There are fountains, a maze of shrubs, trails and paths leading to more attractions and statues... More

A gorgeous place to view with beautiful buildings, sculptures, fountains, gardens, art and more but best be well prepared to walk. I think touring the grounds was more walking than even at Versailles.

A "must see" for visitors to Berlin. About 45 minutes by S-Bahn train, and very easy to get around by bus from Potsdam station. The palaces were really good, and not that expensive. The park itself is very well maintained and presented.

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
