NOTES: Sanssouci was the summer palace of Frederick the Great, King of Prussia. Built above a terraced vineyard in 1745-1747, it is essentially a single-storey villa, containing ten principal rooms. The creation of the Park, organised around several buildings, began soon after the completion of the palace.
