Potsdamer Schlössernacht (Palace Night)
"Looking ahead to the summer of 2024, we would like to thank our visitors for their loyalty and look forward to once again delighting our guests at the Potsdamer Schlössernacht 2024 with countless surprises, the bizarre and the breathtaking on the beautiful grounds of Sanssouci Palace and Park. This Potsdamer Schlössernacht is all about getting to know each other, getting closer to the new and unknown – and this time with a lot of French flair! At Les Rendez-Vouz au Park Sanssouci on 9 and 10 August 2024, perhaps the largest Variety Mile of all time invites you to stroll and marvel with an extensive hygiene concept."
