You can tour the impressive collection of porcelain at the park's 18th-century Chinese teahouse. Then check out the 18 m (60 ft) tall Great Fountain in front of the grand palace.

  • Beautiful park, very well maintained and spacious. We only made it to the New Palais, Orangery Castle and Sans Souci, but what we saw was beautiful and impressive.

  • A palace without this view is deficient! From the waterfall to carefully designed grape leaves. Perfect summer house for kings!  more »

  • It's beautiful but small compared to the New Palace. However, the garden is just amazing. One does not need to enter to get the feel of how rich and powerful King Frederick was. Looking at the garden alone or taking a walk in it can offer stress relieving therapy. The fountain, the wine, the trees, just to name a few. It's a must visit.
  • It is a place with a lot of history, so I recommend to go with a guided tour if its the first time you visit the place, in order to enjoy it more. The gardens are amazing but in order to appreciate this, you will have to visit the place in spring or summer. The entrance is free and you will easily spend a whole day there because it is huge!
