Schloss Sanssouci

Map
Sanssouci, Sanssouci Palace, Potsdam, 14469

The most famous attraction in the Brandenburg capital city of Potsdam (an easy day trip from Berlin) is the elaborate, Rococo-style Sanssouci castle—Berlin’s answer to Versailles, created by King Friedrich Wilhelm II between 1745 and 1747. The sprawling, ornate palace is surrounded by acres of painstakingly landscaped parklands, which include terraced gardens, an Orangerie, a Chinese Teahouse, fountains and colonnades, the statuary-covered Neue Palais (a smaller castle), and a reproduction of ancient Roman baths. Exploring here can easily take up an entire afternoon.
