Global Treasures Sanssouci
Located in North Germany close to Berlin, Potsdam is a city of gardens and castles.The Prussian kings settled in the region and expressed themselves in their garden culture. In 1745 Friedrich The Great ordered the construction of Sanssouci Castle and Park, the most beautiful garden complex in Europe with fine avenues and elegant buildings.It was in this castle that the king wished to forget the anxieties of court and political life, 'sans souci' - 'without worry' - and he did!In the imposing Marble Hall that is framed by numerous columns and whose large doors can be opened towards the terrace, extravagant feasts took place. Corinthian double columns appear to emerge from out of the colourful marble floor, four allegorical motifs decorate the niches and tiny figures decorate the dome. Architecture, music, painting and astronomy each feature beneath the gilded decoration of the splendid dome.Sanssouci Castle and Park are truly beautiful and a World Heritage Site that since 1989 has attracted large numbers of sightseers.
