Sanssouci and the entire royal compound at Potsdam is in my view one of the nicest royal country retreats in Europe. The blend of styles, integration with churches and mausoleums, sculptures, gardens and an emperor's railroad station make it a stunning example of monarchial wealth and grandeur.

I prefer it to Versailles by miles even, it feels so much better as a place. Sanssouci, Babelsberg and the surrounding Prussian residences and parks in Berlin and Brandenburg are absolutely astounding, inspiring, paradisiac.

Only St. Petersburg is quite on par as an ensemble imho.

Sanssouci is absolutely stunning.

I visited on a winter day and perhaps it was not as 'dazzling' as it would be in the summer - however, I thought it was hauntingly beautiful: the palace and the surrounding buildings and the landscaping. It was not very crowded. I loved it.

history about the Charlottenburger Gate...

The Nazis / Albert Speer moved the Gate in 1937/1938 for the big "east-west thoroughfare"...







source: http://www.bildindex.de

Today we can be happy, that they moved it, also for the car traffic.

Thx @Palantir from STadtbild-Forum for finding thi pics!

I am so in love with Jugendstil/Art Nouveau! The imagination and love to detail regarding the decoration is unbelievable. Funny but true, just now, after many years, I realized, there where these large statues situated beneath the roof. They perfectly melt with the ornamentation.
