Well worth visiting whilst in the Park. A beautiful building in a nice garden setting. Look out for all the little bits.

It was shut in winters so we could only see it from outside. The architecture was rich. Would love to see form inside in summers.

18th century idea of China ... the pavilion is almost empty, so best seen from outside. Lovely walk through the park between the new palace & Sans Souci.

Very over gilded , overstated and tucked in the gardens but worth a detour and contains good porcelain.

Check this out when in the park. This is an oddly unique pavilion with all the gold on the outside statues as well as the dome but very enjoyable to see.

The beautifully landscaped park of Sanssouci houses also this amazing pavillon called Chinese House. It is designed in Chinoiserie style which is a mixture of rococo elements and Oriental architecture.

This Chinese house, in the middle of the park is just unexpected. A golden round construction with multiple statues of Chinese men covered with gold. The Chinese have occidental features which is weird, but the construction is just very original.

I missed this place on my first trip to the park but glad I returned and got to see it. Is located in the middle of the park and a little off the main pathways but worth the extra walk to get to.

Fantastic beautiful Chinese gilded house in the gardens. You can see from the outside most of the house. It is beautifully presented and preserved.

Sanssouci park is a must see. The Chinese house was beautiful. A scenic walk for a nice day in Potsdam.
