Park Sanssouci

Park Sanssouci, Potsdam 2017

The Park Sanssouci in Potsdam is the largest park in Brandenburg with about 70 km of roads. Almost every monarch left traces in Sanssouci Park. After the terracing of the vineyard and the completion of the Sanssouci Palace, the surroundings were included in the design. There was a baroque ornamental garden with lawns, flower beds, hedges, and trees. In the hedgerows, 3000 fruit trees were planted. Oranges, melons, peaches, and bananas were found in the greenhouses of the numerous park nurseries.

Frederick the Great continued in the design of the park, what he had already begun in Neuruppin and Rheinsberg, the connection between the beautiful and the useful.

The expansion of the facility after the construction of further buildings has created a two-kilometer-long main avenue. South of Sanssouci Palace you will find the Charlottenhof Palace, the Rose Garden, the poetry grove, the former carp pond and the sculpture of the Ildefonso group.

The castles and garden architecture in the vast Sanssouci park are managed by the Prussian Palaces and Gardens of Berlin-Brandenburg Foundation and have been listed as a World Heritage site since 1990 under the protection of UNESCO.
