We arrived in Potsdam with train from Berlin Zoo, and got off at the old Kaiser Bahnhof. The station where the emperor disembarked his imperial train to be driven the short distance to Neues Palais. You can easily walk this distance and it is the best way to arrive in Potsdam if you want to see the palaces. The ticket... More

While you cannot see all of the palace on the tours and it clearly is in need of further repair you certainly see the splendour and will be amazed at some of the interiors. Somewhat expensive for the limited tour, but I guess they need the money for continued restoration. Will be truly amazing when the whole can be viewed.

I could write pages, but shortly: in spite of the outside renovation, the palace is amazing, impressive a "must-see" in Potsdam. Breath-taking. You have to ask a permission time in the ticket-office, so it is not overcrowded inside, so you really can take your own time to look everything in detail. It worth asking the audio guide. Loved it. The... More

This is the largest palace and it has a wealth of rooms with exquisite interior decoration. The newly renovated 'grotto' is in a class of its own with shell and stone inlays on the walls. It was worth the rather long walk from Sanssouci. Bus connections here are limited.

Definitely worth a trip to see, this baroque palace is off-the-charts opulent. During our trip recently, there were major renovations being done, which was a visual distraction from the outside. However, what we missed outside was made up for on the inside. One of the first rooms we came to was almost unbelievable with its thousands of shells, fossils, and... More

We took the RE 1 train from Berlin all the way down to the last stop which made for a 10 minute walk up to this palace and I highly recommend that. You can get your ticket for both palaces at this one although San Soucci is a timed entry. Gorgeous rooms, lots of gold and really enjoyed our visit.... More

The Neues Palace is a stunning rococo palace at Sanssouci Park in Potsdam. The tickets are only available via timed entry, but that wasn’t made clear on the website where we had purchased our advance tickets for Sanssouci Palace. We arrived just in time to get the last two tickets for the tours starting right then. The tours are via... More

This Baroque palace was extremely interesting. The interior was fascinating, from the grand entrance, to the indoor grotto with intricately placed shells forming a myriad of visions for the eye to see. The grand ballroom covering two floors with the marble flooring underfloor being recently renovated to provide more support and with a new glass and metal over floor on... More

And amazing place I was in awe and I've seen many palaces take your time bring walking shoes and you'll be amazed by the beautiful architecture.

This palace is even better than the nearby Sansousi. Wonderful halls and private appartments. I think if you have not too much time, this is something you must see.
