Frederick the Great’s, King of Prussia’s , summer palace is well worth the visit. Located In Potsdam, a quick train ride from Berlin (less than 1 hour) , it’s nice to get out of Berlin and enjoy historical Potsdam as well. The German Versaille gardens and grounds were beautiful. Make sure to visit San Souci Palace as well. Reserve tickets for the Palace ahead of time because you need a ticket. A nice day full of history and beauty.

What I thought would be a quick hour wandering through the park ended up taking a good half day and we didn't get to see everything! The park is well laid out with plenty of wide paths and even the occasional sign! There was no litter and it really was pleasant to walk around and look at the statues, flower borders and ornamental buildings.
We didn't go into the Palace (I'm not even sure you can) but we walked around that and the windmill and Chinese House. There's an excellent little cafe just next to the windmill too. The park is about 10 minutes walk from Potsdam old town and looking at the map we covered about a third of it so you could easily spend the day there.

This place is enormous! So it does pay off to come on a bike.

And it is incredible how much you can do with money. The park is huge, there are countless various palaces and buildings, statues and fountains here. You could easily spend a few days here and still not see everything.

Huge complex that everyone can enjoy on their own.

Very nice!

Immense park and palace. Groomed gardens, fountains, statues. Can walk for hours. Allow enough time to explore leisurely.

The garden is massive with many 1700s palaces located at the edges of the garden. We went in winter so it was expected not to have lots of greenery around. Yet, the corridors that are walled by naked trees provide the best atmosphere for solo walking and watching the world go by. The garden is made in a way that makes it look like a maze with many branching corridors. The only downside was that public bathrooms are hard to find and not in a good shape.

tourists time you can be on your own, because of the circuitousness of the park. It's very huge, so you can find a new and different way to walk around there everytime and never get bored. Besides the amazing work of the gardeners in the park, which is very beautiful independent of the time of the year, you can discover a few buildings, like the chinese teahouse or the roman bath. On top of that, you can visit the Castle of Sanssouci with all the stairs and plants around, it makes a stunning look and it's definitly a must-see at your visit in Potsdam.
Moreover, the park offers the best place to do sport outside. Next to the many ways, which are appropriate for jogging, The stairs close to the Castle of Sanssouci or the Orangerie are also perfect for some endurance train. After that you can visit a very nice and tiny café near the mill.
The only problem is that there a not so many toilets around, so I substract one point.

Visited this pretty big park during winter when everything were pretty bare. Whilst the palaces are still beautiful during winter, it is probably better to visit during spring or summer when the trees are green and when flowers are in full bloom.

Park Sanssouci offers you a quiet and peaceful contrast to hectic Berlin and is just 30 minutes away
