Information around Schlössernacht
Journey to and from the Schlössernacht
We urgently recommend to all visitors to come by public transportation. There are no parking places available around the park. Additionally you have to expect road closures as well as strong pedestrian inflows on the streets surrounding Park Sanssouci.
Potsdam main station is ideally located. From Berlin-Mitte the S7 train takes you in 40 minutes and the Regio in 30 minutes to Potsdam main station.
Together with VIP and BVG we are working on a transportation concept that provides more busses and trains so you can easily come to the Schlössernacht by public transport. Detailed information on the journey to and from the Schlössernacht 2019 is coming soon.

The organisers endeavour to ensure the highest possible security. We ask for your understanding that bag searches will be carried out at the entrances. You must strictly follow the instructions of the security staff.
Use only illuminated trails and secured event areas at nightfall. If you leave these areas, you do so at your own risk, and the liability of the organiser is hence excluded.

Children up to the completion of their 13th year of age and accompanying persons of severely disabled in whose severely disabled ID card a “B” is entered, have free entrance for the Schlössernacht – they must however provide appropriate evidence at the entrance to Sanssouci Park.
A return after having left the park is possible with a valid ticket. Please ask for a stamp impression when you leave the park. Upon re-entry to the event site, the stamp impression and the admission ticket must be shown.
The tickets for the Potsdamer Schlössernacht are also valid for a visit to the palaces and historical buildings which are opened for visits on this evening. Details can be taken from the programme.
At various entrances and areas on site free of charge WCs are available together with a sufficient number of WC facilities adapted to the needs of the disabled.
Royal souvenirs can be found in the Museum Shop next to Schloss Sanssouci Palace.
If the weather is uncertain or if there is any rain, umbrellas or raincoats as well as rain boots have proven to be quite useful since rain protection and rain shelter cannot be made available for all the visitors.
We ask for your understanding that in the event of rain the palaces may have to be closed at short notice for reasons of conservation to prevent any damage by the high air humidity to the valuable interiors and antiques.
