Sansoucci Palace

Sansoucci palace in Potsdam, Germany was the summer home of Frederick the Great in the 18th century. Notice, this extravagant house was only his summer palace. Frederic the Great was the King of Prussia and owned over 35 palaces. The gardens on this property are said to be the German rival of Versailles. They were designed by French artists who believed in straight lines miles of greenery. The extravagance of this palaces garden amazed me.

After visiting the palace and taking photos on the grounds, we walked to the town of Potsdam and explored the city. It was a small, quaint place with lots of colors and fun shops to peruse. The lightheartedness of the palace will be a stark contrast to the burdens of Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp we will experience tomorrow.
