New Chambers – Halls and Galleries
The halls and galleries of the New Chambers entirely reflect the magnificence of Frederician Rococo, which reaches its pinnacle in the Jasper Hall, a festival and banquet hall located under the cupola at the center of the palace, which has been extensively embellished with semi-precious stones and an opulent ceiling painting. The adjoining hall of mirrors, known as the Ovid Gallery, with its gilded reliefs based on the Roman poet Ovid’s Metamorphoses, exudes a particularly festive atmosphere. It is followed by the Oval Hall, a sculpture-lined room that was used by Frederick II as a buffet room. The suite of rooms ends in the more discreetly decorated and elegant Blue Gallery.
The halls and galleries of the New Chambers are an atmospheric and representative setting for gala dinners, concerts and receptions. The Blue Gallery is a grand space for traditional and alternative marriage ceremonies.
