Not big but nice

The inside is quite small compared to what I expected but it was nice, short explanations in the audio guide , it was a lot of fun to spend some time there.

Again, we enjoyed it with a guide, who was well-informed, passionate about the subject and made the visit so much more enjoyable. A must-see!

It looks like the whole park has a bit of neglection issues. The restoration i pretty bad and for some places they put a picture of a sofa where the original was supposed to be. Other cases out of 6 chairs 1 was original and the rest looked liked a bad restoration job.

As for the palace itself, it's nice to look at, but I found the tour to be quite boring. Not much history or interesting stories to it. Just an average. The most fun part was probably when they required you to put on their super giant slippers over your shoes (to protect the floor). However, I just wanted to point... More

Unfortunately the palace is being renovated. We did not go inside the musem, but even walking around this palace is very enjoyable. Let the beauty come into you. Sit down on the grass en enjoy. We loved walking around.

Entry to this palace was included with our ticket to Sans Souci, but be sure to stop first at the ticket office (to the left behind the palace) to confirm and use the toilets! We did not have a guided tour and enjoyed going through ourselves with the included audio guide which was interesting. Even our teenager liked it! Some... More

Having visited the main attractions in Potsdam, this is by some distance the least pleasurable experience, mostly due to the customer services issues. For some reason they seem to be trained to follow a strict regime with no sense of logic. For example, although the palace doesn't open until 10am, and it is some distance from the ticket office -...

Built by Frederick the Great of Prussia, the New Palace is a dram in the style called rococo. Even if the palace is large, it feels quite cosy. There are several interesting things to see in the palace, for instance the impressing silk tapestries, the bathtub and several pieces of beautiful furniture. An audioguide is availabe in several languages. Please... More

The Neues Palais is a very large baroque castle, built by Frederick the Great to celebrate Prussia's victories in the Seven Years' War. It has had a difficult history: virtually abandoned, then restored in the nineteenth century, then used as a museum, partially looted at the end of the second world war. However, it escaped bombing and is gradually being... More
