    Sanssouci Palace
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Sanssouci was the summer palace of Frederick the Great, King of Prussia, in Potsdam, located nearby Berlin. Sanssouci is notable for the numerous temples and follies in the park. The palace was designed/built by Georg Wenzeslaus von Knobelsdorff between 1745 and 1747 to fulfill King Frederick's need for a private residence where he could relax away from the pomp and ceremony of the Berlin court.

The initial city tour via bus would have been more enjoyable if we were able to stop at sites and take photographs. Santoucci Palace tour was alright, but many rooms were off limits, which was frustrating. We did not need to spend an hour for lunch - should have spent more time

Seeing Potsdam by bus was a perfect option for us. It was a rainy day so it was very convenient to have a guide tell us about the cities and castles from the comfort of our warm and dry seat. It was also much bigger than I was expecting, so I’m really not sure how people manage
