  • Impressive palaces, extensive grounds. Avoiding busy periods is good advice as the original palace is quite small and could get very busy. New palace was not at all busy, although we were still required to do the 400 metre round trip to get a timed entry!
  • Simply amazing park and palace, with great view which is breathtaking. Strongly recommended to everyone who is visiting Potsdam. You should walk through the garden and the park and of course visit the palace. You should visit the palace and the garden during spring or summer in order to see everything around you green and even more beautiful than it is during winter.
