Potsdam Sanssouci Palace


Favorite place of Frederick the Great

Located in the eastern part of Sanssouci Park, the famous Hohenzollern Palace Sanssouci regularly attracts numerous visitors. Built according to ideas and detailed sketches of Frederick the Great on a terraced vineyard, the palace was the favorite place of the king and was used mainly as a summer residence and pleasure palace. On the uppermost vineyard terrace in Park Sanssouci, the monarch found his final resting place in a crypt, as he had wished – albeit belatedly in 1991. The magnificent rooms are considered a masterpiece of German rococo and contain works of art by Watteau, Panini and Pesne. Sanssouci Palace is complemented by the Picture Gallery and the New Chambers Palace.
