Free palace visit for refugees from Ukraine and other countries

The Prussian Palaces and Gardens Foundation Berlin-Brandenburg (Stiftung Preußische Schlösser und Gärten Berlin-Brandenburg) is inviting refugees from Ukraine and other countries to visit for free. Our wish is to give you a moment of peace and distraction in our palaces and large parks. You’d be most welcome!

Our foundation comprises of more than 30 palaces and gardens in Berlin, Potsdam and Brandenburg. Many form part of a UNESCO World Heritage site and make wonderful excursions for families with children, young people and adults.

This means you can visit the world-famous Sanssouci Palace and Sanssouci Park in Potsdam, for example, where you’ll also get an audio guide in Ukrainian for your visit to the palace. Or see the beautiful interiors and extensive park of Charlottenburg Palace, the largest palace complex in Berlin.

If you want to plan a longer trip, you can, for example, use your Help Ukraine Ticket to travel on Deutsche Bahn’s regional trains directly to our palaces and gardens in Brandenburg, e.g. to Potsdam, Rheinsberg, Caputh, Königs Wusterhausen, Oranienburg and Paretz.

Find out more information about opening times and exact travel routes for all the Foundation’s palaces and gardens in English here.
