Potsdam and Sanccousi Castle

Translated from the French, “sanc cousi” means “carefree” or “without a worry.” This is what Frederick the Great, King of Prussia, had in mind when he had this castle built in Potsdam. It is often counted as one of the German rivals of Versailles. Equally stunning are the terraced gardens, designed by Peter Joseph Lenné, and the other former imperial palaces lacing the Sanccousi gardens and offering peace and rest.
