Sanssouci Park and Palace

The terraced Sanssouci Park, in Potsdam, Germany, started when Frederick the Great wanted to cultivate plums, figs and wine on Potsdam’s doorstep. Frederick the Great loved the garden with it's magnificent views so much that he had his summer residence built above the terraced vineyard. Sanssouci Palace is considered the major work of Rococo architecture in Germany. Paintings by Watteau, Panini and Pesne are on exhibit in the picture gallery.

Sanssouci Park and Palace welcomes thousands of tourists from all over the world and is a must see for anyone visiting Potsdam, Germany. Plan to visit on your next Germany vacation with Celtic Tours World Vacations.
