About Sanssouci Palace, Potsdam

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!

Sanssouci Palace, Potsdam Reviews

  • As the park, the palace is very beautiful and of high quality. It's worth visiting at all times of day and year as well. I Liked!

  • Sanssouci Palace is almost magical! Our oldest daughter had her wedding photography done here and the photos are stunning! We have visited again and found it to still be very lovely! It reminds me of Versailles in a smaller context. I highly recommend a visit here!

  • Sanssouci is French for ‘without worry’ and it couldn’t describe it better. You will find lots of beautiful buildings, parks, nature and heritage to take in. Go there by bike and bring picnic.

  • Famous castle built by Friedrich II of Prussia. Castle itself is actually rather small. Tours take about 40 minutes and start every ten minutes (tickets are sold for a specific tour time). Kids 6 and under go on tour for free. Castle gardens are famous in their own right, but a little dull during the winter months. Easy parking is available across the street, but slightly pricey (we paid 5 EUR for just over an hour). Public restrooms in both castle itself and ticket sales building, but both charge 50 cents per visit.

  • It is huge palace! Very nice and imposant place. Architecture is very different from other places in Berlin. If you have enough time you should enter, but I find it a bit expensive. It has too much tourist as well, so queue is long and waiting time was 30 minutes when I was there (May). Souvenir store is nice, small sized, but still a bit expensive (small bottle of water is 4.5 euros🤔). I liked the fact that there was none of foreign salesman who sale souvenirs on street.
