Since the main palace of Sanssouci is relatively small, eventually the added space by changing the Orangery to a collection of public and private rooms for guests, and to do some extra entertaining. The New Chambers will give you a good idea of how the rich and famous lived in the 18th century. The audio guide is really good.

My husband and I went from the hop on hop off tour and didn't even go inside - we were just completely blown away by the whole thing.

There was still restoration work going on at this Palace when we visited in September. Most of the Palace is still open to the public to view. We saw most of the grate rooms which the king used to entertain people. The Palace was mainly used to entertain important royal dignitaries.

Lovely venue, lots of nice rooms to see. Outside statues currently being cleaned so builders, scaffolding, and trucks detracting from the outside beauty. Not as grand as Sans Souci nearby, but stunning surroundings between the two palaces.

This great palace was built by Frederick the Great, who had already built first Sans Souci palace on top of the hill nearby, the palaces compliment each other: Sans Souci small and intimate, Neues Palais grand and perfect for court ceremonies. The most impressive rooms here are the entrance hall, where most of the wall surfaces are covered by shells... More

The New Palace was built by King Frederick the Great to celebrate Prussia’s triumphant victory in the Seven Years’ War. Frederick wanted to show off Prussia's power in the aftermath of the war and built this primarily to receive dignitaries and guests. Opposite the main palace building was built a secondary set of buildings called the Commun that are meant... More

I walked here from Schloss SansSouci. It's a long way about 2.5 km. This is an amazing palace. Make sure to get the camera pass. I took over 300 photos. You will be amazed at some of the facts presented in the audio guide which is available in several language and included in the €8 entry price. Plan to spend... More

My family and I had the day pass to see many of the Potsdam palaces, and we did this audio guide tour after the Sanssouci Palace one. I personally think that Neues Palace is far nicer than Sanssouci. The ballroom and the shell room in particular are far more impressive than rooms I've seen in other palaces around the world.... More

Wonderful guided visit by a personal guide with only 4 of us so we learned a lot. The scale, richness and in places quirkiness of the decor was staggering. For me, much more interesting than Schloss Sans Souci itself.
