"The King's Summer Home"

The word Sanssouci means "without concerns", a sentiment that is embodied by the magnificent Sanssouci Palace. Sanssouci was the summer palace of the King of Prussia, Frederick the Great. The palace was constructed in 1747 and was fashioned according to the king's wishes. Behind the spectacular facade lie richly adorned Rococo halls and chambers. The palace is set atop terraced vineyards at the heart of the Sanssouci Park, akin to a jewel laid to rest on an expanse of verdant velvet. So deep was the king's love for his summer retreat, that upon his death he wished to be buried here, a wish that was finally fulfilled in 1991. The palace remains a popular tourist attraction, as well as a venue for cultural events. Visit King Frederick's most beloved home and witness for yourself the awe-inspiring beauty of this royal abode.
