Wonderful park with so many areas to explore

A very beautiful park spread over a large area and so much to see and do because of the palace in the park along with other buildings and lakes. Worth a visit

This park is one of the most beautiful in Europe. Starting with the cascading vines from Sans Souci, and slowly walking down from the palace to the formal gardens and fountains is an incredible delight on a beautiful day, a memory you will not easily forget, the entire walk to the Neues Palais is quite long, but you can go...

We didn't come at peak time for the gardens, although they were in pretty good shape generally. We are very fit but it was still a heck of a lot of walking in a day (plus we went to the Sanssouci Palace and Neues Palace - are we there yet?) It is definitely worth seeing and if you're feeling tired... More

The best way to get here from Berlin is to take the train to Park Sanssouci station and then walk towards the Neues Palace. The journey from central Berlin takes about an hour. There is a reception and information centre as you enter the park from which you can purchase tickets. The ticket Sanssouci+ allows access to all the buildings.... More

We hired bicycles from the Railway Station in Potsdam - it would be quite a long walk to see the whole of the park on foot. Signage is fairly good and a map is supplied with the bikes showing where cycling is allowed and which is accurate. A ticket for admission to all the palaces can be obtained from Sans... More

You must dedicate a day to visit the Park and surroundings. You have couple of CAFE's inside the park to have lunch or coffee. You can walk around as the palaces are in the same surroundings, suitable attraction for all ages.

There are lots of interesting vistas, fountains, statues and palaces throughout this park. There is even a windmill, and formal gardens. Bring a picnic and enjoy the scenery.

This park is a "must walk thru" for all travellers. No entrance fees! Midst of Potsdam, enclosing to the old town, you can walk in and through one of most beautiful parks in Europe and if you like you can visit the castle of Sanssouci or the "Neue Palais" at the other side (of course there are entrance fees) or...

Enjoyed the gardens more than the palace Sanssouci Palace. Quite extensive and well maintained with a beautiful fountain. There is a guy with a golf cart that will take you from place to place, which we found out later in the visit and wished we would have known. Will save you lots and lots of steps.
