A trip to Potsdam without Sanssouci is only half-completed. This place is wonderful and I would recommend to spend 1-2 hours walking in the gardens and the old and new palace. Of course the best time to go is spring-summer.

Excellent place, well organised, impressive palace. I purchased my ticket for palace on-line which helped to save time. From Potsdam Hauptbahnhof there is a direct bus to the palace. I also booked an audioguide I was really impressed about what I saw during the visit...More

Despite it's imposing, elegant exterior, Sanssouci Palace has a surprising intimate feel inside and 'only' has 11 rooms. It was built as a private summer residence for Frederick the Great as a place where he could relax away from the pomp and ceremony of court...More

A very large area to explore, lots of things to see and visit, be prepared to do lots of walking. The Chinese Haus is a must see. The old palace is just grand.

So wide and nice, very interesting place. Makes you imagine how it was back when people were actually living there. The big gardens are huge and the river below is amazing!

Came in at one of the coldest days if February. I think it loses appeal in the winter as the trees are naked and everything looks gloom. The building itself is very impressive, and I like the stairs leading to it.
