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.

Great example of the weird, opulent, Rococo version of chinoiserie. Go in if it's open and you've payed for the S+ ticket. Otherwise, wander by and admire it from the outside (you're not missing too much). Just show your ticket outside the door.

This palace hides in the woods and reveals itself out of no where. It is called Chinese because of some statues surrounding it but it is really kitch with lots of gold paint

The Chinese House is such a tasteful location. Excellent restoration , a lot of Gold and glimmer. Unfortunately it was closed, because of the early season. But people love the Park and the Chinese house.

What a delight to the eye, such design, such color. The fantasy continues inside, where your eyes will see what money and art and vivid imaginations can conceive and create. Enjoy!
