Sanssouci Park, with its palaces and park structures, may be counted among the most significant park ensembles in Europe and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. No other palace is so closely tied to the personality of Frederick the Great as Sanssouci Palace.

The name Sanssouci – carefree – should be understood as the desire and leitmotif of the king, because it was here that he most gladly retreated. Georg Wenzeslaus von Knobelsdorff completed Sanssouci Palace and its terraces in 1747 according to Frederick the Great’s ideas. The situation of the palace on the famous vineyard terraces and the originally preserved 18th century interior decoration allow today’s visitors to delve into the world of the philosopher of Sanssouci.

We offer the following group tours:

  • Sanssouci Palace and Park
    Highlights of the guided tour: the Marble Hall, the Little Gallery, the Library, the Concert Room of Frederick the Great

    Booking Policies

    We offer a flat rate for groups limited to a maximum number of participants. The group rate always includes fees for group admission to the individual palaces, as well as a personal tour guide or audio guides.

    If the number of participants exceeds the maximum size allowed, the group will be divided. Each group is allotted an admission time. The group flat rate is calculated per tour group. At some palaces, we offer a surplus fee up to a specific number of participants for the second guided tour. The surplus fee flat rate cannot be booked as an individual service.

    There is no minimum number of participants required for a group tour.

    Guided tours can be booked in a variety of languages. The bookings of a respective language are carried out subject to availability of tour guides and cannot be guaranteed.

    We offer a 10 % discount from the group price for the groups accompanied by a guide licensed by the SPSG. The discount does not apply to group bookings / group tours with audio guide.

    Special arrangements for groups outside the scheduled opening hours are possible on request. In addition to the group fee for a guided tour, extra charges apply for a special opening.

When booking a reservation, the purchaser is obliged to indicate in writing that the group in question is a school or youth group. Furthermore, the purchaser must state in writing that the age restriction is adhered to, as noted above.
