Awesome place to walk around. The buildings look amazing, but I enjoyed the long paths surrounded with nature that lead to them even more. Check it out if you are ever in Berlin... read more

This park is visited by a lot people. But sadly the gardens 🏡 were not well done. The water where the fountain ⛲ was dirty if not filthy. I was expecting something like English Garden in Munich. Nice place. With better care, the park would look even better. After all the location & setting is wonderful

Awesome place to walk around. The buildings look amazing, but I enjoyed the long paths surrounded with nature that lead to them even more. Check it out if you are ever in Berlin or elsewhere nearby, it's quite near the main train station in Potsdam. Have a good one!

A garden where you can walk for hours. All kind of little buildings and palaces etcetera. It looks a bit like Versailles but smaller.

The park and palace are just unbelievabley beautiful. You walk from the Sanssouci Pallace to the Orangery to the Belvadere to the Dragon Hoise to the New Pallace not knowing where to look next for the next feature.

Without doubt the most amazing park I have ever visited. The number and quality of the monuments, places, and buildings within it are testimony to the grandeur of the design and wealth of rulers who created it. An absolute must see in Potsdam, and if in Berlin got to get out to see it.

The beautiful grounds of Sanssouci can be enjoyed for free and make for a delightful day side trip from Berlin. Since there are ample, well placed benches throughout, I would suggest grabbing some picnic fare before you leave Berlin (and, of course, a bottle of wine) to enjoy in regal style on the royal grounds. Yes, there are printed maps... More

Clearly no expense was spared. The garden is on a par with the finest in France and Europe. Walk around, climb to the top for a superb view. Sit on a bench and enjoy it

An hour away from Berlin this park and palace are really worth a visit. The gardens are lovely, quiet and calming....and huge. Best is to take a (public) bus to the Park to leave some energy for walking through it and taking in all it's beauty. The town itself is really worth a visit too....maybe on the way back if... More

What a lovely park to explore. We enjoyed a cool afternoon and evening walk around the Park. Most people were running, but we find there's always more to see when one is walking slowly, so there's that. There's a lot of grounds to explore and a lot beautiful castle-like places to see, just like Babelsburg Park.

Utilising a zone A, B C 6 day Berlin Card, and having 'done' everything we wanted during 2 weeks in Berlin, we decided to use the S-Bahn and spend a day at Potsdam. Well its quite some distance, taking nearly an hour on the two trains connection we needed from our base near Lankwitz (a short 15-20 minutes S-Bahn to... More
