Beautiful grounds but April is too early to enjoy the best of the gardens. Lovely way to spend a day walking around but I felt it could be better sign posted also a lot of work was going on with the buildings. The statues had just had the wooden coverings taken off so before April would be disappointing.

There is a lot to see in the park and it's really beautiful. First of course, we went to Sans Souci. Afterwords it was great just walking through the park and see what appears behind the trees and bushes.

Castles have the original furnishings here. The gardens are spectacular. The park is close to downtown Potsdam and the bus system can get you anywhere.

We traveled to Potsdam from Berlin with the intention of visiting Schloss Sanssouci. We took one of the RE trains from the Berlin Zoo station, planning to get off at Potsdam HBF but were happily surprised to see that the train we were on went all the way to Park Sanssouci station itself. When we got off the train it... More

We were lucky to have a beautiful day to explore this park. The grounds are pristine and there are so many areas to see. I would say you need at least two hours to see the main areas but could easily spend the day. Highly recommend as a day trip while in Berlin!

We went to Potsdam for Christmas as a day trip from Berlin, knowing that the Schloss would be closed, but we were happy to wander from Neues Palais to Schloss Sanssouci and admire the architecture. The weather was perfect for this considering it was a winter day. I suggest you print a map of the estate beforehand in order not... More

We walked from Neues Palais to the town centre on Boxing Day, which was very pleasant. Even though it was quite cold, the park was really atmospheric and the Hauptweg was filled with others doing the same.

We visited Sanssouci as part of a history fieldtrip and I thoroughly enjoyed walking through the park. The Chinese tea room is definitely worth walking to, it's stunning! We didn't go into the Palace due to the cost, but the park alone is well worth a visit. I would however advise that you visit during the spring and summer months... More
