Located between parking spot and the garden. Didn’t get inside, but the view from outside is enough. Looks massively and fits with the park.

Located at the Potsdam palaces this is a beautiful windmill that actually goes around. You can climb to the top and get a wonderful view of the expansive palace grounds.

You get to see the inside of a windmill. Once at the top the view is breathtaking! The inside has been modernized, I think they should have left the top floor orginal. Worth the visit, it's not often you get to the inside!

Once we were walking around and the mill was rolling suddenly it stopped. It was a good moment to picture it though.

This in an interesting structure in an interesting park. There were lots of tourists here but it was still worth visiting. We rode around Potsdam in bicycles and the windmill was easily accessible

We did not have enough time to see it from inside, but I guess it is worth doing it. It is quite new, it was recently reconstructed.

This windmill is hard to miss. Its located at the entrance of Sansoussi park. It has a gift shop and ticket shop. From here you can start your visit to Sansoussi Park.

Located next to the Sansoucci palace, the mill is difficult to miss. The original mill at this location pre-dates the palace and has been reconstructed several times. The present structure is a twentieth century replica of the eighteenth century original. Worth a short visit if...More
