Create an itinerary including Sanssouci Palace
Sanssouci Palace was the summer residence of the King of Prussia, Frederick the Great. Admire the palace's grand Rococo architecture, and stroll through landscaped gardens filled with fountains and marble statues. On the castle hill, you can find the king's tomb. Marvel at the opulent furnishings throughout. The Voltaire Room's woodcarvings of apes, parrots, cranes, storks, fruits, and flowers are a particular highlight. You can explore the palace on a guided tour in German or via audio guide (available in English); both are scheduled, so check the times when you arrive. Put Sanssouci Palace and other Potsdam attractions into our Potsdam travel itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • We hesitated between Charlottenburg and Postdam and we chose Postdam, with no regret. The entrance ticket gives you access to SansSouci castle with its rococo decoration, but also to the wonderful...

  • If you have an extra day, do spend a day here. The town is a pleasant place to explore and chill. At the palace grounds, walk through the gardens, the Old Palace, the New Palace and that huge gallery....  more

  • One of the beautiful places in Potsdam, nice architecture, especially the sculptures are amazing & very detailed. Naturally beautiful and peaceful. We visited in Autumn, so the trees were colorful and the weather was too good for walking. Both the back side & front side are nicely designed and managed. The stairs with a beautiful garden and a small lake creates an eye soothing view, the palace is a nice photography zone. The whole place within 2/3 kilometres is beautifully designed with some 3 palaces & garden. A must visit place.
  • Amazing place located just outside the idyllic town of Potsdam. I didn't go inside the palace, but just to be able to stroll around the beautiful stylized gardens and view the grand houses, gate lodges and various water features is a pleasure.
