Sanssouci Palace, Potsdam
Description
Another splendid example of a garden inspired by the French style is Potsdam’s Sanssouci Palace, the modest (well, by royal standards) "maison de plaisance" summer residence of Frederick the Great. 

A
way from affairs of the state, this is where the Prussian King could relax and unwind amidst more than 700 acres of formal gardens and parkland.

K
nown for his love of music, art and a spot of philosophy (Voltaire was a house guest) Frederick had terraces, grottos, Roman Baths and a romantically situated Chinese Tea House built with a beautiful Parterre as the central view point from the palace windows.
