The tour of the palace was well explained and showed the absolutely fabulous rooms. Now wonder the palace has been on display to the public for over a hundred years.

Really beautiful. We visited the gardens as well and it was magnificent. The grave of Frederick the Great was also located there, with potatoes on the grave.

Frederick the great was a brilliant and talented musician, art lover and agricultural planner. A kind of Jefferson of Prussia. Sans Souci was his monument to all these passions. A bit over the top but a legacy of genius. Worth seeing any day or any...More
