An interesting and very nice place to visit (both closet and garden). The price of the attraction is not cheap.

The Sanssouci Palace and grounds are amazing and you could easily spend all day here exploring all the different buildings and gardens or hit the highlights in a couple of hours. Be prepared for a lot of walking though as these gardens are more than...More

We took the train for Potsdam to get there. We had to wait before we could be admitted, but this rococo palace is really worth it! I have seen many palaces in my life, but every one has its own personality. You get good explanations...More

When we arrived we had little knowledge of what to expect. We had thought that it was just one palace to look around. The tickets that we bought cost about £80 as one child is over 14 but at the gate they seemed to have...More

After a few days in very urban Berlin Central, went to Potsdam and had a great day. Old and new palaces are beautiful. Would definitely recommend a whole day here. We brought a picnic lunch with us (food options limited) and enjoyed the nice weather....More

We visited the palace and the garden. I'd say it is worth a 2 hour stay, with the audio guide included. The place has a very interesting story, it is very picturesque and the staff is very friendly.

Charming rococo palace Sanssouci and it's gardens are worth to visit (at least during summer season). All the websites are telling you to book advance timed visit to The Sanssouci Palace, so we were quite worried about not being able to get inside the palace...More

Sanssouci Palace is well worth a visit. The rooms are amazing, & the guided tour was excellent. The grounds are large & very beautiful. Be aware of insects that bite though!

We took the train from Alenderplatz in Berlin which is regular and got off at Potsdam. The park and palaces are superb and a lovely day to spend a sunny day.

Easter is a big deal in Germany, they could be closed. But then a lot of people have holiday then and it would make sense for them to be open. The only way you will know for sure is to email them.

Q: "Do we have to buy entrance tickets for the palace and if yes,how much they cost?" A: Yes. They cost EUR 12 per adult for the palace. If you want to see other palaces and buildings the Sanssouci+ ticket is a better option... More
