Spent the afternoon on a rented bike, short on time, hitting as many photo opportunities as I could. This building is gorgeous. Did not have the opportunity to go inside.

Sanssouci Palace is over the top, but, hey, it was the 18th century. If you enjoy this type of architecture, art, and design, go for it. If not, you may want to stick with the gardens, and the art gallery (separate price) has one fine...More

We caught the train and then a taxi there and arrived just before 10am to find about 100 confused people milling around the closed ticket office. Eventually somebody came along and explained that the buildings and gardens were all closed due to it raining. The...More
