I actually came here in May of 2015, but only just got around to posting this now. It was very illuminating and if you're a history buff, this is the place for you! They've done a very good job of maintaining this place and are still undergoing some restorations. It's worth the 30-35 minute trip outside of Berlin. Tip: You... More

Pretty Palace of the King Federick. This was his summer home and it is decorated in a playful manner. There is an auditour that plays along with this tour. Just be sure not to touch anything, touch the floor off of the desired path or take pictures. You will get yelled at.

These gardens are magical, beautiful, and all in all worth your time. Plan a visit for an hour or two just to stroll through the gardens or visit the museum inside the palace.

We visited on a Monday so most of the palaces were closed but even so, the park is beautiful enough to warrent a visit. You can walk round Sansscouci palace grounds without going in and marvel in its Beauty. It's no Versailles but it's still worth a look. The grounds and park are well loved and well looked after.

Sanssouci Palace is one of two palaces situated in Sanssouci Park. The audio tour was very informative and the classical music sections really added to the atmosphere of the tour. The only criticism I had was that you had to view the rooms as part of a tour which felt a little rushed at time. Definitely worth a visit though.
