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.

It is worth to visit inside and enjoy the pleasant atmosphere. It must have been really a pleasant place for Frederick to spend there the summer time...sans souci

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.
Sanssouci is a wonderful historic palace. If you leave the well-trodden paths ... you will discover plants and hidden places that hardly any visitor sees. That makes a visit always eventful. It is best to book a combination ticket to see other castles as well. Luckily they tried lock I liked that there were audio guides that you had to hold to your ear. This meant that you could concentrate completely on the premises and not be on the side with your cell phone.
