Photographer's Note

This panorama is stitched from several (do no remember how many) photos. Through the colonade the palace (Neues Palais) can be seen. In the ws an additional picture from another pov

Directly opposite the New Palace (Neues Palais) at the end of Sanssouci Park, stands the 24-meter-high triumphal gate in the center, framed by a colonnade arch with 158 pillars and a pavilion building at its north and south ends, the communs.
Immediately after the Seven Years' War, King Frederick II wanted to show splendor and power of the winner and built the new Palace between 1763 and 1769. The same time, six years, was needed later between 2008 and 2014 to reconstruct it after severe damage.

Since 1990, the New Palace has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site "Palaces and Parks of Potsdam and Berlin" (wikipedia)
