Sanssouci Royal Park

Potsdam is a place that most people have never heard of. This can be a good or bad thing depending upon your point of view. The Palaces and grounds are amongst the best in Europe. This unique area became a world heritage site in 1990.

Further Visits

Since I first visited Potsdam in 2003, I have returned a number of times and I'm am slowly starting to appreciate how much the area has to offer for visitors. The Sanssouci Royal Park is huge with numerous buildings. Most visitors only scratch the surface with visits to the main buildings.

    Me again, coming back after several years for another look at this very interesting page. I still haven't been to Potsdam (except on business), because I keep going west to France instead.

      I always think of Potsdam being similar to Berlin with no distinct centre, with lots of things to see, but everything is spread out and its always at the end of a bus or tram ride.

    Wonderful page! Lovely photo's! Had just finished reading about it on a Castle's of Germany website. It is a wonder they don't have golf carts for hire with so much walking to be done.

    My one visit to Potsdam so far was a somewhat hectic business trip with no time to look at the sights, so I hope to return. Great that you have been there several times and had a good look at everything! I like the history and the Einstein connection.

    Interesting place to visit. What a lot of great palaces of various sizes. I loved the 'Turkish Mosque'. Excellent pictures and now even more good informative tips.

    To be beside the Schloss where history was changed by some great statesmen must have been a wonderful experience. The parks look lovely & I do like to walk around too!
