I think they should provide a ticket to see the whole park instead of keeping on facing asd sons everywhere as for this one. Having said that, this palace was not even open and no poster or sign with an explanation! We made it to...More

The Chinese House is such a tasteful location. Excellent restoration , a lot of Gold and glimmer. Unfortunately it was closed, because of the early season. But people love the Park and the Chinese house.

What a delight to the eye, such design, such color. The fantasy continues inside, where your eyes will see what money and art and vivid imaginations can conceive and create. Enjoy!

When I visited, you couldn't go inside. So basically, I walked by, though wow that's kinda ugly, and walked on. I understand that the palace was built because of Frederick's fascination with all things Chinese. But it's really a poor representation of Chinese culture and...More

A really unusual house with life-size gold statues in the middle of Sans Souci gardens. Stroll along this gardens and you will find fountains, vegetations and even the odd squirel.

South of the Hauptallee, about 1/3rd from the fountain at the base of the terraced park, stands this other-worldly garden pavilion, built 1755-1764, copying the then fashionable style of Chinoiserie, a mixture of rococo elements and parts of Chinese architecture. Interestingly, the statues of Chinese...More

When getting deeper into the gardens you'll find that small Chinese House. It served as a place for small social events for royal family. Nice exterior and interior. A nice break in a stroll around the park.

Compared to other European Monuments, historical buildings the Chinese House is ornate and elaborate.

The outside looks beautiful with the gold leaf all around the round building but the inside I was not impressed. Maybe it was the end of the day and we were exhausted. Other buildings are much nicer and more history to them. I basically walked...More

Ik lees net bij een beoordeling als je foto's wilt maken van Chinese Haus, dat je 3 euro moet bij betalen. Als je een plus pas koopt van Schloss Sanssouci en je betaalt je 3 euro om foto's daar te mogen maken, telt dan dit niet om foto's te maken in alle plaatsen die je bezoekt met je pas? Of moet je per toegang deze nog eens afzonderlijk bij te betalen? Vriendelijke groet
