Astonishing architectural spot created by an extraordinary mind of the Fredrick the Great. It is so rare that you see a king and leader with great taste of art such as Sanssouci Palace. My favourite place in Berlin!

Part of huge park this palace is worth seeing. Suggest hat and maybe umbrella as there is not a great deal of shade in mist if the park. Drink and food is available outside the palace near the bus stop.

The gardens are justly famous, but for us, it was the Palace itself that formed the basis of our visit to Potsdam. Built as a summer residence by Frederick, it was his favourite home and he died here and is buried in the grounds. The...More

One of the most interesting palace tours ever! This is a remarkably small place but it is lovely and not overwhelming.

The Park is open from 08:00 until dusk but the buildings are closed Monday. I'm not sure where the steps you refer to are but if outside you can see them on Monday.
