The Orangery is large building in Park Sanssouci. There are two huge glass-windowed halls (which you can't visit) for tropical plants, and a small palace in the middle. The palace is exceptionally opulent, a series of beautiful rooms. The highlight is the Raphael Hall, with first-rate copies of all the painter's great art works.

You have to go round with a guide - when you turn up, either buy a ticket or present your 'Day Pass' and you'll be put on the next tour. This is usually a benefit, but here the guide was a hindrance to my enjoyment. The group had no Germans; she spoke English fluently and everyone spoke English - but she insisted on conducting the tour in German, leaving us all rather baffled. She also seemed very suspicious of the visitors, watching us like a hawk and carefully locking each door after we passed through.

The tour lasts about 30mins, and afterwards you can climb up to the roof for a spectacular view of the park.

This is a beautiful palace that is worth the time and effort to get there. Each room has a story and it is so enjoyable to see these beautifully decorated rooms. Take the time to walk the grounds. It is beautiful.
