Although I was rather tired by the time I reached this palace after visiting various other Potsdam attractions, I am really glad I made the effort to get there. I walked through the Neue Garten from Cecilienhof, which is an excellent walk, but few others seem to do this. The customer service at the palace was excellent - so much... More

Marmorpalais looks simply stunning - red palace situated on the lakeside amidst a beautiful garden couldn't look anything else. It's also very interesting inside - the tour takes you through many rooms with many artifacts. The tours are held in German, but you get an audio guide in a selection of languages. Be aware that the tours start at particular... More

The grounds are well groomed and the view on the back side of the Marble house overlooking Heiliger Lake is beautiful. All tours are lead with guides only. There is an additional fee, beyond the entrance price, if you want to take pictures inside. There are audio guides in english, but when I inquired the lady at the counter did... More

There is a tour every hour and have to pay the ticket. You should wear slippers inside the floor. The gardens are beautiful.

A very nice wee palace that sits right next too the lake which is quite almost hidden within the neuer garten, but it is very lovely, also has a interesting kitchen that is built as a sunken temple worthwhile to look at while wandering the garden

If you fancy a change from the touristic bustle, the Neuen Garten offers pleasant lakeside walks through meadows and woods, with the added attraction of this charming little palace. There is enough to be interesting, but not so much as to be tiring. It is only by guided tour - but groups are small - in fact, I had a... More

This is a small palace that, with a mandatory observer (isn't as bad as it sounds, the guides are very informative and friendly), is very interesting to see and hear about. The audio guides are excellent (in English of course) and the displays are very well explained, including differentiating between the original and restored aspects of each room. The Soviets... More

This was difficult to get to, but worth doing. Better on a guided tour rather than on ones own. Be sure to buy a €3 photo pass before entry. The pass is stamped with the date and so is valid all day in other Potsdam attractions too, which was very handy.

Situated on the bank of the Heiliger See in Neuer Garten is this interesting Palace which is well worth a visit. It was commissioned by Frederick William II of Prussia and designed in the early by Carl von Gontard and Carl Gotthard Langhans, designer of Berlin's Brandenburg Gate in the eighteenth century. It is now rather dilapidated and undergoing repairs.... More

We had a very nice tour of Marmorpalais (Marble Palace) and found it to be very impressive. Floors were wonderful, views, interiors, and an included audio guide in English. A must see in Potsdam. Way more interesting than Charlottenhof unless you are really into the Potsdam Conference History.
