Built close to the mid 18th century as a royal home to Frederick the Great, the Sanssouci Palace is often compared to the Palace of Versailles. The striking yellow building is not hard to miss and its classic Rococo style with an adjoining vineyard and garden area, makes the place one of the most mesmerizing places in Potsdam.

The festival of ‘Night of the Palace’ is celebrated here in full regalia- evoking the romanticism and charm of 18th century Baroque era. Today, the palace is a great insight into the lavish life of the King of Prussia and is as close to royalty as you can get!
