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!

Gorgeous palace. Amazing architecture....love the statues around the front facing a great park right in front of palace. Beautiful setting. Frederick the Great & his 11 dogs buried at one end of the palace. Great gift shop. Can't comment on interior, never went inside.
Long walk from train station to the park and onto the Palace. Forgot it's closed on Monday, so did not get to go in the palace. Compensated by the view in park and the walk to the Palace was charming, remember to wear comfortable walking shoes as park is massively huge!!! Spent 3hrs and cannot cover all the major points in the park. Deserve a full day in Potsdam.
This palace is another must in Potsdam. Sanssouci was the summer palace of Frederick the Great, King of Prussia. Although it is a small palace, it has a beautiful architecture with a beautiful view of the gardens and fountain. The best season to visit is during the spring or summer when all the flowera make this place look even better. Here you can also find King Frederick's tomb. The entrance to the area is free although sometimes you may be asked to contribute with € 2 for maintenance.
Beautiful gardens and palace. Great trip for the family, for a group of friends or either just as a solo traveler. Even if you don't want to pay extra to go inside, it is still worth the trip. Try to find a nice sunny day to go and you will not be disappointed.
Its really nice place to have a trip over here. If you are art lover, then you love the palace art. Really the king is damn great in keeping arts😍
