“You would need shoes made for walking”
Review of Sanssouci Park

Sanssouci Park
Ranked #1 of 95 things to do in Potsdam
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed April 4, 2018

The park is huge. The estate is full of surprises, secrets and places not to be missed. You would need a whole day or two to take it all in. Come on a sunny day. Come in winter, spring or fall. It does not matter at all.
Place of fairy tales.
Do not forget to bring your family. History is there to be learnt, admired and respected

With a couple of hours between our timed entrances at Neues and Sanssouci palaces, we took our time strolling through the park. The paths were wide and level, so suitable for wheelchairs and prams, but there was not much seating so not suitable if you tire easily.

We visited at the end of a long, cold winter, so the trees were still bare, but it was still a very pleasant walk, stopping at the Orangerie and Chinese House en route. I can only imagine, but it must be beautiful in summer. My only slight criticism would be the lack of clear signage so we did end up walking around in circles slightly.

If you have the time, I would really recommend taking the time to walk between the palaces.

The park is so well maintained. The canal/lake had frozen over and people were playing ice hockey and skating on it. It was extremely vibrant. Loved it.

At first I went to the bridge near the palace (its the same entrance). It was a winter day with rain and fog, which contributed to the atmosphere. next step was going down to the garden, A very preety place. I also recomended to continue to the new palace, a few min driving.

We trekked around this amazing place for 5 hours. We had to take our backpacks with us as we were headed to the airport afterwards (not advisable). Take a drink and some snacks with you as there is a lot of walking.
The pathways are easily accessible for those with wheelchairs or pushchairs. The architecture around the park is extremely diverse and interesting. The palace is a very steep climb ! Toilets are located behind the palace just next to the windmill as well as tourist advice.
There is little shelter in the park other than the trees so I suggest going on a day where the sun is not too hot and there is not too much rain.
