Entering the Park from the east you will first walk towards Sanssouci Palace. It was Frederick the Great's favourite place serving him as summer residence, sanctuary in difficult times and pleasure palace in which he wanted to enjoy his private life. The name Sanssouci – without a care – should be understood as both the primary wish and leitmotif of the king, because this was the place where he most preferred to retreat in the company of his dogs. 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.
