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 - Write a Review
It was apparently an expensive place to enter, but free to wander outside and take photos. It is a beautiful and unusual palace, looking more like a gigantic orangery than a place where Prussian rulers once held court. It is the outstanding building in a palace complex of many grand, oversized buildings.
Fascinating! And very nice staff. Problem: Audio guides out of sync with rooms, because of large number of visitors building up in each. You have to move along, so audio still on previous room while you are in the next. Too much detailed blather, in the time-honoured German tradition of tedious thoroughness. BTW, avoid the outdoor sausage stand across the road; snarly young, body-scratching server who left one of his hairs on my bratwurst -- "worst, served by brat"? Ha, ha! vitty, ja?
We booked our timeslot and bought tickets online as recommended to avoid hours of waiting. With the online service charge, it was 21€ per person, not including the photo charge. Although this includes all of the buildings, the new palace was closed on that day, a fact which was not on their website. Once there, you also get to pay 50 cents just to use the restroom. The guide makes a comparison with Versailles. Even Versailles, despite being more well known, is only 20€.
Peaceful and beautiful garden. Definitely worth a day trip if you are in Berlin.
Nice small castle. The tour is about 50 minutes long which seems a little short for the price. If you book online you can only buy a combined ticket for several other locations (some nearby) for 21€. If they catch you taking pictures they will ask you to stop or pay 3€ extra for permission.
