If you are king you need a weekender to getaway for the Summer.
Fredrick the Great thought he need a little place so built a few conveniences in the park at San Souci.
The Palace was a start, terraced the front for a vineyard. (Grapes died a couple of times so put in cheeries and plums, not even absolute monarchs have it their own way all the time).
Built an Orangery (more of this later) as you need you fresh fruit, had a ruin built to give the vies some interest.
Amazing place and the target for every drive by tour group in Germany.
The foundation who run the place do not seem to believe that human need to excrete and are in serious need of a consultation with English Heritage regarding customer facilities. They haven’t got the cafe, toilet, shop thing going at all. And the hedge trimming would never do for the UK.
Excellent time despite the houses of convenience.
