Impossible to visit all the palaces but nice to try! Be sure to make your reservations the day before for the main palace as the line up to get in gets long real fast. The view from the top is worth going up all those...More

I highly recommend giving yourself half a day to wander through the park, where Sanssouci Palace lives. It's gorgeous, peaceful, and filled with several historical points of interests, a few palaces including Sanssouci. Sanssouci itself is pretty wild to see in person. Extremely unique grounds,...More

This is a small palace to visit as it contains only 12 room, none of which are that spectacular. An audioguide is needed as there are no descriptive panels in any rooms. You need to buy photo permit for 3€ (valid all day for all...More

Located in an amazing parkland, with lots of other palaces around all differently themed. It takes most of the day to get around it all and involves a fair bit of walking, so be prepared and wear very comfortable footwear!

Very beautiful palace with lots of history. The decorations and ornaments were very intricate and impressive. The architecture was also very grand. The surrounding gardens were huge and lots of things to see too.

Found the grounds fascinating and could have spent longer taking everything in. How decadant it all was and one can imagine trotting from one palace to the next. There was a weird flautist who turned away from anyone who didn't give him money at the...More

This palace is beautiful but I found the history of the King during the tour so interesting. Purchase your tickets at the gift shop and wait your designated time. The view while waiting is beautiful with faux Roman ruins in the background.
