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. Much of the interior decoration of the music room was by the sculptor and decorator Johann Michael Hoppenhaupt (the elder).
