Create an itinerary including Neues Palais
The last great Prussian Baroque palace, Neues Palais was a royal playground complete with a theater and several stunning rooms, including Grotto Hall, where the walls are encrusted with marble, quartz, seashells, and stones. The theater is still in use on the second floor, but before you attend a performance, tour the maze of rooms. Your ticket includes access to four grand staterooms, royal apartments, and a tour of the theater. A performance will require a separate ticket. Take advantage of good weather by walking the palace grounds with the Comuns, which housed the servants and the kitchen, and a park where statuary, fountains, and pathways break through the greenery.

  • Amazing! The grounds are beautiful, there are several gardens and walking paths to walk through. Both palaces are worth seeing. I was there in winter and can only imagine how beautiful it is in the spring and summer.
  • The place is nice, the architecture is amazing, the garden is very nice to walk to. I have been there on winter and on spring. Spring is better! :)
