Schloss Sanssouci

  Maulbeerallee, Potsdam      +49 331 969 42 00     more than a year ago
The 18th century rococo-style Schloss Sanssouci (Without Worries) has a gorgeous approach up a flight of vineyard terraces. Frederick the Great loved his little 'Prussian Arcadia' and was buried on here at his own request. The original palace rooms and guest apartments host works by Rubens, Van Dyck and Caravaggio. The palace sits within the 290 hectares of Park Sanssouci, which holds a botanical garden, an Orangerie, Roman baths, the Chinese House, the Neues Palais, and Karl Friedrich Schinkel's Schloss Charlottenhof, whose interior is perhaps the best preserved example of Schinkel's work. Each sight has its own separate admission charge and changing exhibits. The hilltop Belvedere auf dem Pfingstberg is a romantic folly lookout tower completed in 1863. On busy days arrive early to secure tour tickets, or join the tourism office's Sanssouci tour which includes the palace even when day tickets are sold out. From Potsdam Hauptbahnhof station take bus N°612, 614 or 695.
