  • The Park is well worth a visit. You can visit this garden without admission. We have taken him in connection to the castle tour of inspection. In the summer, certainly more interesting than in April.

  • I love Park! Whenever we have gone we lucky enough to have bikes to enjoy better, as you explore it from its various access. Recommended at any time of the year, although most from spring. In summer does not ensure good weather, we rained to us in July and in April no.

  • A trip worth who is in Potsdam. A great tourist attraction. You should have time and walking.

  • Peaceful and beautiful park. There are a few cafés and restaurants within the park you can enjoy. But I recommend get a picnic basket and choose a nice spot on a sunny day and relax.
  • On of my retreat places. The park is so large that in the outer parts it is never crowded, even when there are a lot of tourists at the palace. Winter, spring, summer or autumn - no matter the season, this historical place will recharge your "inner battery" in no time.
  • Already long ago no newly learned not place amazed me so much. Beautifully, climatically, variously, a German order. I will definitely return there in the spring or fall for a longer walk.
  • What a beautiful park to cycle in. Sanssouci Park is pretty huge but there are ample bike paths that allow you to cycle through its vast grounds to the various attractions within. If I had to walk through the park, I would have died. In fact, even on a bike, it still took some time between sites. Sanssouci Park and by extension Potsdam proper is pretty flat with a few manageable uphills and downhills, which makes it perfect to explore by bike.
  • Huge and wonderful park. I went there in summer and winter, it's beautiful in both extremes.
