We visited both Sanssouci Park and Sanssouci Palace, Fredrick the Great's stunning summer residence. The palaces/buildings in Sanssouci Park are simply breathtaking - don't miss the New Chambers Palace, New Palace, orangery, Chinese House, and Charlottenhof Palace - all are simply stunning.

Came here in winter and the views were fantastic, so wintery and frozen looking. The sun came out and everything looked even more dreamlike, such vistas. Come, walk around, enjoy!

A February visit probably doesn't do the park justice. The trees are all bare and none of the floors are out. The grass and paths can be muddy. And, when I visited, only the Sanssouci Palace was open for visitors. I'll give the park the benefit of the doubt that it's probably a much nicer visit with good, warm summer... More

It is probably one of the best parks we have ever visited. It is amazing and it contains many palaces and architectural attractions. Definitely worth the visit. We visited it during the winter season but we plan to get back during summer to see it when nature is alive! The park is immense!

My husband and I had the pleasure of touring the palace and its grounds with a private (palace) guide as part of a river cruise transfer excursion. Although we've enjoyed many palaces and gardens around the world, this one is well worth several hours.

The garden is massive with many 1700s palaces located at the edges of the garden. We went in winter so it was expected not to have lots of greenery around. Yet, the corridors that are walled by naked trees provide the best atmosphere for solo walking and watching the world go by. The garden is made in a way that... More

We visited on a really cold January day with loads of snow on the ground. We had a wander for a couple of hours, seeing the outside of some of the beautiful buildings, but not going in. I would love to come back again in the summer as I think it would be spectacular with all of the plants in... More

This summer palace of the Prussian kings sits in a beautiful park setting. Up on a hill, overlooking the vast gardens is Sanssouci. It is a one story, long and narrow palace which isn't very big, there are only 10 principal rooms.. As with so many palaces that were later in control of the Soviets, any family furniture or other...

We visited here in January...it was very cold and snowy. I thought it would look magical and be quiet. However I didn't know that they covered up all the statues with what look like wooden sentry boxes. It looked more like a military camp than royal gardens. However I think in the spring and summer this would be well worth... More

One of the most beautiful castle's garden I've ever seen. The Sanssouci and New castle are really wonderful. I would say to spend a whole day at the surroundings of this park because each part of it is a new beautiful discover. If you don't have a whole day to spend there, think on rent a bike at the central... More
