Closed on Sundays, so could not see either the interior or the mausoleums. The purpose of the Peace Pond (Friedensteich) other than as an extension of the gardens of Sans Souci remains a mystery.

Taking the Boat from Wannsee S-bahn Station to Potsdam, we passed this architectural gem, located beautiful at the water and used after restoration for public and private events.

This is a Protestand church in the Park Sanssouci, City bus reach the east edge of the park, walk several minutes to get there. When we went there, the church is under renovation, only can view the exterior.

Big church at the south-east corner of Sanssouci Park. There was some sort of religious celebration inside, so we didn't have a chance to look at the interior, the Kaiser Friedrich Mausoleum was also closed, so we missed on all the interiors... But the setting...More
