Parks and Palaces of Sanssouci

Germany is one of the best places to visit royal parks and Palaces. This picture gives you a glimpse of Sanssouci, the largest World Heritage Site in Germany and the Royal residence of German Kings until 1918. The Potsdam Rococo style of architecture exuded grandeur even during a cold winter’s day.  The  look of grandeur continued as we explored rooms with ornate decorations, gold-gilded walls, marble statues and porcelain flora. These Palaces are worth a visit during your stay in Berlin if you are a lover of Palaces, architecture or European history.

Wikipedia states that Potsdam is like England’s Windsor. Do you agree and why? Click here to read my previous post about Windsor castle and let me know what you think! I spotted the Queen at Windsor Castle you know 😉

How do you get to Potsdam from Berlin?

  • Take a train from Berlin to Potsdam. It will take you to approximately 45 minutes and you can easily spend a whole day there.

When is the best time to visit Potsdam and Sanssouci?

  • We visited in winter, but the best time to visit is in summer or spring. Some of the royal residences are closed during winter (as we found out) and the parks are much lovelier with foliage and flowers in bloom.
