Very big park. You can easily walk for few hours in it. You'll also see the palace and other historical buildings

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)
