    No visit to Potsdam is complete without a trip to the most famous attraction, Sanssouci Palace. Built according to own sketches of King Frederick II from 1745 to 1747 in the style of the Rococo, the vineyard castle was the summer residence of the king. The tour with audio guide is worthwhile - as well as a long walk through the beautiful park.

    In the summer months, the vineyard terraces are particularly beautiful, the motif of the wine is also reflected in the design of the interiors. If you want to admire park and castle in the summer in peace, you should start early - or enjoy the evening hours.

    Where does it already exist that the central garden part of a palace complex is ultimately a kitchen garden whose design is optimized for the highest possible yield? And that already arose before the castle was completed on the top terrace - "my vineyard cottage" is said to have called it Frederick II. Country cultivation and country beautification as an expression of enlightened mind. 132 steps lead up to six terraces.

    No visit to Potsdam is complete without a stop at the most famous sight - Sanssouci Palace. Built in Rococo style from 1745–1747, it was King Frederick the Great's summer palace. Enjoy a tour with an audio guide - you won't regret it. Also make sure to save enough time to stroll around in the park at your leisure - it is truly spectacular, especially from spring to autumn, when nature in the park shines in all its glory.

    If you visit in winter, you have to accept that the figures are covered. Nevertheless, the plant has its charms also at the time of year.

    The Sanssouci Park in Postdam is one of the most impressive and beautiful parks in the world and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. According to the UNESCO Commission: "Sanssouci Palace and Park, often referred to as Prussian Versailles, is a synthesis of 18th-century art movements in the cities and courtyards of Europe. The ensemble is an outstanding example of architectural creations and landscaping against the spiritual background of the monarchist state idea. "
    This park is just fantastically beautiful, so big that one day you can not completely visit it and one thing is certain: once it has been visited, it always stays in your memory. A visit is a must if you are in Potsdam!

    Because here in Potsdam it belongs to the unconditional "must see". Whoever did not see this was not in Potsdam. Now in the fall, most of the figures are packed, but not soo many visitors stream through the park. You are almost alone on the road

    No other castle is as associated with the personality of Frederick the Great as his summer residence Sanssouci. It was completed after ideas of the king in 1747 by Georg Wenzeslaus von Knobelsdorff.
