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.

Beautiful Gardens, the main house is small but interesting. Glad we saw it but not something to repeat.

The Main house here is currently under refurbishment however it is definitely worth wandering in and exploring the formal grounds.

We were dubious about visiting this at the end of November, but it was worth it. It is coming up to winter and felt like it might snow any minute, but the setting, buildings still have amazing majestic appeal. It only makes us want to return when the garden is in a better season.
