Entering Sanssouci Park from the east, you can hardly miss Potsdam's most famous palace.

Majestically enthroned on its famous vineyard terraces at the end of a long, elegant curved staircase. With lush green vines, statues in Carrara marble around a fountain whose water sparkling in the sunlight,... It's easy to see why Sanssouci Palace was Frederick's favourite palace. It served him as a summer residence, sanctuary in difficult times and a pleasure palace where he enjoyed his private life.

Frederick the Great wanted to grow plums, figs and wine at the gates of Potsdam. The extraordinary view inspired him to build his summer residence on the terraces.

The palace was built between 1745 and 1747 by Georg Wenzeslaus von Knobelsdorff according to the king's ideas and sketches. It is considered the main work of German rococo architecture. The rooms, which are characterised by splendour and elegance, are still originally furnished. They exhibit masterpieces by Watteau, Panini and Pesne.

Note: Admission to Sanssouci Palace can be purchased at the Visitor Centre at the Historical Mill. There you will also get to know what time you can entry the palace.
