New Palace | "Gartensalon"

To the south of the New Palace in Sanssouci Park lies the “Gartensalon,” which consists of an oval lawn and a Gittersalon (a pavilion enclosed by latticework). It was commissioned by Frederick II and built shortly after the New Palace was completed. Presumably the Gartensalon was primarily used for outdoor concerts and musical performances. A few years ago this charming little garden structure and the surrounding areas were lovingly restored. The Gartensalon is an inviting, cheerful venue for outdoor concerts, receptions and readings.
