Owner description: Friedrich the Great's amazing 18th-century palace, reminiscent of the grandeur of Versailles, is surrounded by a magnificent 600-acre park.

I bought tickets online for Sansoucci directly through their website. The tickets are for a specific time and the time is strictly adhered to so make sure you show up at the time indicated on your ticket. There are audio headsets in various languages which give a brief information about each room which is very helpful and informative. We visited Sanssouci Palace, the Chinese Tea House, and the Roman Baths. If you buy tickets everything in the park is included. The grounds/gardens are expansive and fun to walk around. This is a great place to spend an afternoon.

B'days of the palace reached on foot from Potsdam hbf about what at all didn't regret. Tickets bought at office near the palace and a historical mill. By a mill also rose, expecting the time - Sanssouci Palace the only place, an entrance where it is regulated by visit time.
Inside you receive the audioguide, the text clear and quite competent.
Interiors of the palace are remarkable, as well as its appearance from an orangerie. From the road it looks a little started.

Absolutely a great palace to visit with all the surrounding gardens and buildings that are part of this huge complex.
Wonderfully restored is in rococo' style with silk tapestries and superb wooden floor.Really gives the idea of the "grandeur" of the period.

Rick Steves' directions to Sansoucy Palace are wrong. We took bus 606 believing as Rick claims in his guide book that it would take us to the Palace. It does not. The closest that bus 606 gets you is to the far corner of the Sansoucy Park grounds. The correct bus to take is 695. I was traveling with my 84 year old mother. The amount of ground that we were able to cover was limited. We did, however, manage to make it to the closest ticket office by 9:55 am. The office was open, four clerks were sitting at their assigned positions staring straightforward--all with little signs reading "closed" in front of them (it was genuinely a Rod Sterlingesq scene).

I was fairly certain that we were still a proper bus ride away from Sansoucy Palace, and I had the audacity to speak to one of the ticket clerks as follows:

Me: "I know that you are not yet selling tickets, but how do we get to Sansoucy Palace?"

Ticket Clerk (quite loudly): "We open at 10:00."

As it turned out, the clerks obnoxiousness inspired a fellow patron to involve herself, and direct us to the bus that actually goes to Sansoucy Palace and we found our way.

By the by, after you visit the formal audio guided portion of the palace, you should head to the left (facing in entrance) and visit the kitchen display. Despite a decent crowd touring the palace, we were the only patrons to visit the kitchen. The staff in the kitchen were delighted to share their knowledge of the ages of implements and the like. Very sharp contrast with the originL clerk that we encountered.
