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.The Chinese House was designed by Johann Gottfried Buring in 1755-1757.
