Potsdam: Chinesisches Haus

The Chinesisches Haus (Chinese House) is a garden pavilion in Sanssouci Park in Potsdam. Frederick the Great had it built to adorn his flower and vegetable garden. The garden architect was Johann Gottfried Büring, who between 1755 and 1764 designed the pavilion in the then-popular style of Chinoiserie, a mixture of ornamental rococo elements and parts of Oriental architecture.
