Create an itinerary including Sanssouci Palace
Sanssouci Palace was the summer residence of the King of Prussia, Frederick the Great. Admire the palace's grand Rococo architecture, and stroll through landscaped gardens filled with fountains and marble statues. On the castle hill, you can find the king's tomb. Marvel at the opulent furnishings throughout. The Voltaire Room's woodcarvings of apes, parrots, cranes, storks, fruits, and flowers are a particular highlight. You can explore the palace on a guided tour in German or via audio guide (available in English); both are scheduled, so check the times when you arrive. Put Sanssouci Palace and other Potsdam attractions into our Potsdam travel itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • A palace sadly past it’s prime, Germany needs to spend some of its cash on restoring this palace and preserve its past. The staff at the entrance were a bit strict on the rules, we were a minute...

  • Bought the Sanssouci+ tickets online. Booked time for Sanssouci Palace and easily obtained time slots for the Neues Palace when we arrived. Took the regional train to/from the Sanssouci Park...

  • I wasn’t inside the palace because i wanted to enjoy the sunny weather but the outside was beautiful. The garden around it was also really great. It was like the cherry on top of an ice cream 😍 It was made in a lot of details like the palace it self.
  • Best place to enjoy your holiday with your family. Amazing palace and plenty of space to sit and have fun with friends or family. Palace has huge park surrounding it which for sure requires a day to explore but sadly you cannot take your cycle inside the park.
