Another noteworthy building in the Sanssouci park - oriental style teahouse. It currently houses a beautiful collection of porcelain.

“A Real Jewel in the Crown!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

Sanssouci Park is vast and there's lots to see. A visit to the Chinese House is well worth the few minutes extra. It will not take long to see and is beautiful to photograph. No tours - guided or audio. Your guidebook will tell you everything you want to know.

“Love the monkey”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013 via mobile

One of the special things about this little house is the monkey that is painted in the ceiling on the outside of the house. He follows you with his gaze wherever you go. Otherwise it is also a very beautiful building. Not really worth paying extra to go inside.

“The outside is interesting”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

Sorry, but it is not worth visiting the inside of this building (even if you have bought the park day ticket) as there is almost nothing inside. It is worth walking past the outside of the building and taking some pictures if you are in the area.

“The walk up is the best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013

You turn the corner of a path (I came from the Orangerie direction) and the blue and gold house appears through the trees, a jewel in the sun. The oriental figures are fun, going inside is part of the overall ticket, but it is the first view that you will remember
