Germany, Potsdam Guide (B): Schloss Sanssouci, Potsdam

If King Friedrich the Great knew anything, it was how to build a good Schloss! Sanssouci Park is covered in palaces, churches, galleries and even Roman Baths. The gardens are so extensive that you need at least a day to make the most of your ticket. The Sanssouci+ costs 21 Euros online or 19 Euro on arrival. All entrances to Schloss Sanssouci are timed. If possible, get a 10am slot, so that you can make it to all the other palaces in a relaxed manner. The gardens are huge, with a good two kilometres between the two main palaces, so you do not want to be sprinting from one palace to the next, as we saw one gentleman doing in the afternoon! You can always arrive earlier than your timed entrance and explore the smaller buildings first, which is what we did.

Be aware that Schloss Sanssouci is closed Mondays and the New Palace is closed Tuesdays. We arrived on a Tuesday and still did not have time to see everything, despite the New Palace being closed, so try not to worry too much.
