Worth a visit - but currently main halls under construction

This is very interesting. The guide had a very good way of explaining history without it being boring. Unfortunately the two main halls (worth seeing) are under construction. Once... read more

Since much of the Palais is under renovation, you can only access as part of a guided tour - which means buying a ticket and reserving a slot. The commentary by the guides is average and somewhat unenthusiastic and hardly 'engaging'. And of course, if you have a weak bladder, make sure you deal with that before you enter......there are...

Frederick the Great built this six hundred room palace for his guests, while he spent most of his time in the much smaller San Souci at the far reaches of the gardens. Not in the greatest of shape, but impressive even in its dilapidated state.

Current renovations going on but worth seeing the fruits of labors with what has already been accomplished. Frederick had to build this to accommodate his guests since Sanssouci is so small and he really did not like lots of people around him. The kitchen and servants quarters look like another palace behind the rear courtyard.

The Neues Palais is worth visiting and is easily accessible by bus from Potsdam City Centre. It is currently being renovated but is still worth seeing. Until 2017 only part of the Palace is accessible (we were given protective slippers to wear in the Royal Apartments!). The sheer scale of the buildings in this complex are impressive. The Palace can... More

Sans Souci Park in Potsdam is home to a half-dozen palaces, including the best-known (from which the park takes its name). However, the most impressive of all is the Neues Palais, a remarkable confection which is largely baroque on the outside and rococo on in the inside. It was built as a guest house by Frederick the Great (who preferred... More

Be very careful when booking your time slot to enter the palace! We paid for a combined ticket to Sansoussi & Neues Palace, and were booked onto the time slots recommended by the people at the ticket office at Sansoussi. This was based on the the length of the tour times and time to get to the Neues palace (when... More

This palace is situated at the western end of the garden-palatial ensemble of Frederick the Great. This has (is ) being extensively renovated and is most impressive in its use of marble - a must for palace fans
