This magnificent, magical place was the summer palace of Frederick the Great, King of Prussia who is also buried here with his 11 dogs. It is a must-see, along with many other interesting Potsdam places from ancient and more recent history.

We had the most amazing guide here, Dorit W. She is a master storyteller and she has a delightful sense of humor. Just one thing, you cannot take pictures inside the palace. This was the summer palace of Frederick the Great, King of Prussia. It...More

A nice looking palace surrounded by a nice big park. Not so interesting on the inside however. Not bad overall.

Going to Berlin in July and would like to visit Potsdam too. We plan to take the regional train from Zoo Station and get off at the Park Sanssouci stop. How far is this stop from Sanssouci Palace and also centre of Potsdam for some sight-seeing. Is it all within easy walking distance. Thanks

Easter is a big deal in Germany, they could be closed. But then a lot of people have holiday then and it would make sense for them to be open. The only way you will know for sure is to email them.
