Royal Palace and Gardens

Sanssouci (which means “no worries”) was built as a luxurious summer palace for Frederick the Great in the 1740s, and is often cited as a German rival to Versailles. On a guided tour of the palace’s resplendent interior, you'll hear the history of the tremendous building and see the rooms where Prussian royalty reveled. The park surrounding the palace is a wonderful attraction, too. As you explore the magnificent grounds, you’ll discover graceful fountains, hidden statues, and gilded cottages. The palace is located in Potsdam, a few miles away from Berlin, so plan to spend the good part of a day here.
