So beautiful here! Love all the fountains, parks, flowers, trees and buildings! If we had more time, we could cover more on foot. Perhaps next time, we should rent bikes!

So well maintained and huge, great place for a leisurely stroll. Didn't bother going into the palaces after reading other reviews of them being a little plain but viewing them from outside was enough for us. Great day out!

I believe Sanssouci Palace will be close but Sanssouci Park will be open. The Park is amazing so you will enjoy it very much. For more information please refer to their website (can't post a link in here sorry)
