No other palace is more closely connected with the personality of Frederick the Great than Sanssouci. The name Sanssouci  "without care" should be understood as the aspiration and leitmotif of the king, because it is here that he most preferred to withdraw from the world with his dogs. In the end, Frederick the Great's summer residence was both a favorite place and an important sanctuary for him in difficult times.
The location of the palace on the celebrated vineyard terraces and the originally preserved, 18th century interior decorations permit today's visitor to become immersed in the world of the philosophers from Sanssouci. The rooms are marked by elegance and tasteful displays of splendor. They also let the king's love for delightful surroundings, for the Prussian Arcadia, be clearly felt. It is interesting that the king desired to be buried in a grave on the highest vineyard terrace. Even in death, he wanted to be near his Sanssouci. His wish, although quite belated, was finally fulfilled in 1991.

Der Besuch von Schloss Sanssouci ist an feste Einlasszeiten gebunden. Karten sind ab 10:00 Uhr für den jeweiligen Tag an der Schlosskasse erhältlich. Da die Anzahl der Eintrittskarten pro Tag begrenzt ist, ist zu empfehlen, sich frühzeitig das Ticket zu sichern.
Insbesondere in der Sommersaison ist der Besuch an einem Wochentag und am Vormittag zu empfehlen. Nachmittags ist erfahrungsgemäß mit langen Wartezeiten zu rechnen; oft sind die Karten bereits vor der Schließzeit ausverkauft.
