Wonderful park!

I went there with my boyfriend and it was amazing. A huge garden with a lot of beautiful old palaces. 😊 we went inside the Bildergallerie too and that was really nice!

So beautiful. We visited on a very hot day and enjoyed every minute. Superb fountains and magnificent terraced gardens The park is enormous and though busy, was uncrowded. Clearly significant investment has been and is being made in the Palace and the park and in some parts, there is still a way to go. Do not miss a visit to... More

We went there on Monday. Their official site states that the perl of the park is closed on Mondays. Fortunately, it was not true. Probably due to the fact of a high touristic period - second part of July. Probably due to the fact that they are constantly renovating several palaces and keep open at least those that attract people... More

This park is well worth a visit! Only a direct train trip from zoo station for instance. The park is huge and a nice variation from the busy streets of Berlin. Combine with a walk in Potsdam and you have a half day activity. Longer if you go in to buildings and museums. The park has few places to buy... More

A beautiful and well-kept park. A must visit when nearby Potsdam! The flower beds are amazing. The Sanssouci castle is worth a visit too.

We absolutely loved our visit to Sanssouci Park. The grounds are beautiful and wandering along the meandering paths is a great way to spend the day. During our visit, we also toured the Neues Palace and Sanssouci Palace, which we've reviewed separately. A lot of the tourists visiting the park seemed to just take the direct path between these two... More

We only had time for a short stop on our way back to Frankfurt, so we entered the park and walked towards Schloss Sanssouci, which was built based on Versailles, complete with the gardens. We did not climb the steps up to the Palace but walked around in the gardens. So beautiful, peaceful and quiet, and a wonderful way to... More

It is definitely worth my travel from Berlin (i bought the train day ticket from Berlin (Alexanderplatz) to Potsdam it was around 7-8 euros, unlimited use for a day and including the return ticket). I got down at the Charlottenhof Bhf and walked through the quiet neighborhood (which was a plus to see the beautiful houses decorated with colorful fresh... More

We didn't visit the castles, but the park itself is great, lots to see. Nice palaces, Chinese house, forest areas, a great place to spend some time or a whole afternoon.
