Park Sanssouci (Potsdam)

“Sanssouci” is French for “without sorrow”. And you can really immerse yourself without sorrows in ancient times when wandering through the park in Potsdam south-eastern of Berlin.

“Sanssouci” is French for “without sorrow”. And you can really immerse yourself without sorrows in ancient times when wandering through the park in Potsdam south-eastern of Berlin.

The Prussian kings had built several beautiful buildings through Park Sanssouci from the middle of the 18th century to the 19th century such as Sanssouci Palace, New Palace, an Orangery, a Chinese Tea House and even a botanical garden. Versailles is said to be the ideal for Sanssouci. Today it also belongs to the UNESCO world heritage.

When I went to Sanssouci as a little kid visitors had to wear felt slippers over their shoes to protect the historical parquet floor. It was so much fun to slither over the sleek floor wearing these uni size slippers that felt like boats for us children.
Unfortunately they aren’t needed any more due to carpets that have been protecting the floor since last year.

The entry to the park is free of charge. So you can enjoy the beautiful architecture from the outside without paying anything. But when you want to experience the interior you have to pay for each building.

    Very nice! Love the 2nd and 6th pics in the set.
    Sanssouci is also one of my favourite songs by the great Rufus Wainwright. Your photos make some great visuals to the song.
