Potsdam Orangery Palace


Dolce Vita in Sanssouci Park

The largest structure in Sanssouci Park – the Orangery Palace – was built from 1851 to 1864 and is a symbol of Frederick William IV’s love of Italy, who also contributed designs for the structure himself. The southern flair is visible in numerous places of the imposing building: from the central palace with its plant halls, to the terraces and fountains, to the arcades and sculptures. Even today, cold-sensitive potted plants are brought to the side-built plant halls for overwintering. Apart from that, events are held here regularly. The Raphael Hall in the central building is also impressive, with a collection of copies of Raphael’s paintings that is well worth seeing.
