Hidden in the Sanssouci park lays this beautiful pavilion. Not as exquisite as the other buildings it is still worth seeing it.

The house is located inside the Sansoussi park. You will pas it on your way from the main palace to neues (new) palace. It has beautiful statues on the outside and paintings inside.
