Park Sanssousi Sep 15, 2012
Located just outside the Brandenburgen Tor in Potsdam you find the park Sanssousi. The park is a nice green area with lots of attractions just a short bus ride away from the central station in Potsdam from where you can commute to and from Berlin easily on the S-bahn trains.

Inside the park you will find several castles which you can visit if you got the time - if you want to visit them all you will need a lot of time to go and see the Potsdam castles - there are a discount ticket if you want to do so. If you got less time (as I did) you can just choose to walk around the park and enjoy the castle from outside and the different fountains which you will find close to Sloss Sanssousi which is the castle the park has been named after. There are also other buildings which are pretty like a small teahouse.

Only little minus is the limited access to buying things to eat if you visit late in the afternoon - so better stock up on snacks or make sure you have enough to eat before heading here.

Sanssouci Park & Palace at Potsdam Dec 25, 2012
If you're interested in history you'll enjoy the palace and the gardens surrounding the palace. You can take a tour of several of the buildings/palaces that were built in the 1700's. There is a windmill that you can climb up and see inside. The gardens are beautiful and worth taking a leisurely stroll. Potsdam is a short bus ride from Berlin; if you go, plan on staying most of the day there. Also check out the old Dutch Quarter, lots of brick houses and building built in the 1700's. Very quaint area, with restaurants and cafes at reasonable prices.

A small trip to Potsdam May 21, 2008
Park Sanssouci is, as said, a park with palaces in it. The park houses old statues as well. Some of the beautifull palaces are free to enter, which is absolutly recommended to do!

Most palaces are buildin in Baroque or Rococo style. One of the palaces was even painted Orange. A nother palace was build by an extravagant king, he had all the columns, floors and even some walls decorated with gems and gold leaf. This palace is free to enter, but you'll have to wear some kind of slippers to protect the special floors. Some of the floors are of expensive marble, others of special kinds of wood. This palace alone is worth a visit, you'll never find a nother palace like this one. Now which palace has a cave like room filled with amethists, jade, all kinds of quarts and many more. Or columns with big chunks of these minerals/gems?

Which palace has floors with marquetry or the abstract form of it?

Park Sanssouci was begun by Frederick the Great and extended by his successors. It contains numerous buildings including palaces, an orangery, a windmill and a Chinese tea-house, many of which have exhibitions. However, the park is mainly a vast and somewhat melancholy landscaped open space, with some exceptionally fine views (especially in the area round the orangery), in which it is possible to wander and get lost and imagine the glories of the past. For some of the buildings, such as the windmill, there is an entrance charge.Allow plenty of time, and make sure you take a guide-book or a map, because it is very easy to get lost.

ideal daytrip from Berlin Jul 10, 2000
You're unlikely to run out of things to do in Berlin quickly, but if you want to take a daytrip anyway, Potsdam is the ideal place to go. It can be reached on the S-Bahn (or on a cruise).

Park Sans-Souci is lovely and large, you can easily spend a couple of hours just walking around here. To see the palaces from the inside, you need to come early, because they only allow a limited number of people in each day. I was content with just a look at the outside.

The town of Potsdam itself is pretty nice too.
