  • I recommend to visit Charlottenhof and the Roman Baths, although they are far in the South part of the Park.

  • 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.
  • Very big and beautiful park with huge old buildings, thousands of sculptures, fountains. Entrance is free of charge, if you walk slowly, sit and eat, you can easily spend 4-5h. Quickly walking min 2h. Entrance into the palace costs 19Eur per adult. Also there is a nice botanical gardens inside the park
