17th Potsdam Palace Night

One summer night every year in August Sanssouci Palace Gardens are host a incredible Night with an abundant programme: music, dance and drama, jazz, literature and cabaret entertainment. Illuminated park trails entice you to take a leisurely stroll and show the way to pa-
laces that are open to visitors on this night. The climax is a musical fireworks display over Sans-
souci.

Baroque masks and costumes are coming to life again in the park, at the Orangery, the New Palace, in front of the Chinese Tea House, at the Roman Baths, the Picture Gallery, or at the Church of Peace on the other end of the park.

Sanssouci, the former summer residence of Frederick the Great, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site embedded in an extensive park landscape conceived by famed landscape architect Peter Lenné. During Potsdam Palace Night, both park and buildings are brilliantly illuminated and peopled by illustrious figures.

Before you enjoy a unique experience in Sanssouci Park, give yourself some little more time to stroll through the city centre that takes you along magnificent town houses and churches as well as charming shops, cafés and restaurants.
