The building is interesting in how much Rococo can be compressed into a relatively small palace, both inside and out. It is also a must visit for anyone interested in European history. Tickets are scheduled for specific time slots, which we found was a good...More

The terraces to Schloss Sanssouci are impressive. But for me both the Neues Palais and the Orangerie are nicer buildings to photograph and look around. Definitely worth viewing, but not the one I would have named the park after.

We did not have a lot of time to visit Sanssouci Palace, so we simply walked the grounds to view the exterior of the palace and walk the beautiful gardens. I found the mill to be my favorite point of photography. Everything is well-maintained here,...More

There are parking spaces, but I was without a vehicle, so I did not notice the price.
