    Potsdam & The Sanssouci Palace

    Alter Markt, the historic center of Potsdam, shines in new splendor with the Nikolaikirche and its reconstructed baroque buildings, the Barberini Museum and the state parliament in the shell of the old city palace. Visit Potsdam's 'Broadway' shopping mile, and the small independent shops, galleries, antique dealers and cosy cafés throughout the Dutch quarter.

    The Sanssouci Palace - no other palace is so closely linked with the personality of Frederick the Great as Sanssouci. The name Sanssouci – without a care –  the place where he most preferred to retreat in the company of his dogs. The king’s summer residence was ultimately his favorite place and sanctuary in difficult times. The location of the palace beside its well-known vineyard terraces and the originally preserved 18th century interior decoration allow visitors to delve into the world of the “philosopher of Sanssouci”. The interiors are characterized by their elegance and stylish displays of grandeur. They are also a clear expression of the king’s love of beautiful surroundings – his “Prussian Arcadia.” The magnificent Picture Gallery and the New Chambers palace. It is of note that the king wished to be buried in a crypt on the uppermost terrace of the vineyard. Even in death, he wanted to be near his beloved Sanssouci. His wish was granted, although not until his reburial there in 1991. Frederick the Great’s grave is located on the highest terrace.
