For those who feel small when standing Reichstag in Berlin, this building will blow your mind! It was built to intimidate, and it does just that. Given the choice, a summer tour would be preferable as you are in and out in one hour in November. Yet in just one hour you can soak up the opulence, and the statement... More

A big beautiful palace guarded by two tall figures of angels. It's at one end (western) of the Sanssouci park. Quite a bit of a walk from the Sanssouci Palace, but level grounds mean its perfectly doable. I personally think this palace is more impressive than the Sanssouci Palace. But, it's probably best seen in summer on a clear and... More

This palace is inside the Brandenburger Vorstadt - a big park with palaces and others tourists points, but this is the most beautifu palace of Potsdam. I recomend between 3-4 hours to know the main important points in this park. You can buy the tickets in anyone of palaces - and you can get an discount buying the tickets to... More

Potsdam, the former capital of the German kings is worth the short visit from Berlin. The New palace was built to accommodate their visiting guests. The vast size of the rooms and their opulent furnishings left us spellbound. One of the smaller rooms on the ground floor was where Kaiser Friedrich died less than 100 days after becoming the emperor.... More

Long stroll through the gardens led us to this large palace. Demostration of power and glory of Prussia, it has over 200 rooms. It is considered to be the last great Prussian baroque palace. At the top of the dome Three Graces support the Prussian royal crown. It contains a grotto hall - unusual room with walls ornated with stones,... More

This is the most impressive of all the castles in Sanssouci. One of the first grand salons is the Grotto. It's walls are covered with 250,000 shells, as well as minerals and fossils. The gorgeous rooms are much larger than those on the other castles, and have bathrooms and central heating! The Grand Ballroom is out-of-this-world. I have seen castles... More

Since the main palace of Sanssouci is relatively small, eventually the added space by changing the Orangery to a collection of public and private rooms for guests, and to do some extra entertaining. The New Chambers will give you a good idea of how the rich and famous lived in the 18th century. The audio guide is really good.

My husband and I went from the hop on hop off tour and didn't even go inside - we were just completely blown away by the whole thing.

There was still restoration work going on at this Palace when we visited in September. Most of the Palace is still open to the public to view. We saw most of the grate rooms which the king used to entertain people. The Palace was mainly used to entertain important royal dignitaries.

Lovely venue, lots of nice rooms to see. Outside statues currently being cleaned so builders, scaffolding, and trucks detracting from the outside beauty. Not as grand as Sans Souci nearby, but stunning surroundings between the two palaces.
