We visited here in January...it was very cold and snowy. I thought it would look magical and be quiet. However I didn't know that they covered up all the statues with what look like wooden sentry boxes. It looked more like a military camp than royal gardens. However I think in the spring and summer this would be well worth... More

One of the most beautiful castle's garden I've ever seen. The Sanssouci and New castle are really wonderful. I would say to spend a whole day at the surroundings of this park because each part of it is a new beautiful discover. If you don't have a whole day to spend there, think on rent a bike at the central... More

This place really had got a bit of everything. Palaces, churches, gardens, windmills, fountains and statues. Everything about it is truly stunning! Highly recommended, worth the hour travel from Berlin

We were disappointed not to have more time to explore this park as it is totally stunning. Being winter it was dark early so my main tip would be to visit in spring/summer time. Despite the cold it was still possible to see how magnificent the park is. Absolutely worth a visit.

The park is free to enter and with the exterior section of the Sanssouci Palace definitely woth the visit. If you are limited in time you may spare the hassle to buy tickets to enter the palace (12 euro for adult and timeslot must be pre-booked).

We went to the park in Jun in a nice sunny day with friends. We must have walked for 2 hours, marveling its size and the scattered Roman architectures in the park. The Asian pavilion is a treasure to us, clearly one of its kind in the world. We did not get into the palace, its visitor shop has good... More

I don't want to give the impression that the park isn't beautiful, because it is. I can imagine that, during the warmer months, it would be an absolutely magnificent place to go. I was there in winter, though, and many of the palaces and other points of interest were closed, some for maintenance and others presumably because very few people... More

After the hurried tour of the Palace it was wonderful to wonder the grounds. The biggest disappointment was the lack of an accurate map. Several times we thought we had found another treasure only to learn it was not - very confusing. The teahouse was hard to find a huge distance from the formal gardens. There we had to walk... More

We have been here before earlier in the year, in June, and now in July we had expected to experience this famous garden to be at its best in full blossom with roses everywhere. Unfortunately, there were none.
