Grunewald Hunting Lodge – that conjures up the sound of the horn and the kill of wild game. Courtly hunting in the forests and lakes surrounding the picturesque Renaissance palace situated “in the green woods” had been a tradition since 1542. An enthusiastic hunter, Joachim II Hector, Elector of Brandenburg, had a stronghold constructed for himself. Frederick I implemented representative Baroque expansions and smaller court buildings at the beginning of the 18th century. However, the palace was primarily characterized through extensive modernization work that was carried out from 1901-09 on the initiative of William II . The palace has been used as a museum building since 1932. The famous Cranach paintings from the SPSG’s collection have been on display in a permanent exhibition at Grunewald Hunting Lodge since October 2011. The second Mayn emphasis of the new permanent exhibition – on the ground floor of the building – is dedicated to the theme of “Courtly Hunting in Art.” A newly opened gallery depicting the sovereigns can be viewed on the upper level: “Electors and Kings in Portraits: Portraits of the Hohenzollerns from the 16th – 19th centuries.”

Treasures are hidden in Grunewald Hunting Lodge: Nearly 30 works by the painter Lucas Cranach the Elder (1472–1553) and his son transport viewers back in time to the era of Martin Luther and the Reformation in Brandenburg. They display portraits of the Brandenburg sovereigns, while pointing out the virtues of a good ruler in a series of Exemplum (example) panels from the Berlin Palace. Other works enter into the worlds of ancient and biblical figures, clearly demonstrating the Passion of Christ.

Important information regarding your booking

We offer a fixed group price that depends on a maximum number of participants. This price includes entry to the respective palace for the group as well as, depending on availability, a personal guided tour, an audio guide tour, or the use of an app via a personal technical device (e.g., smartphone).

If the number of participants exceeds the maximum limit for the program, the group will be divided. Each subgroup will be allocated a specific entry time, and the group price will be calculated accordingly per subgroup. For some palaces, an additional fee is offered for the second entry time slot, up to a certain number of persons. This fee cannot be booked separately.

There is no minimum number of participants for a group booking. Programs can be offered in various languages, including personal tours in German and English, as well as the use of audio guides and tours in the SANSSOUCI app with additional language versions. Further information about the tours and language versions can be found in the current group price list.

If groups are accompanied by a licensed tour guide from the SPSG, a 10% discount is granted on the group package price. This discount does not apply to group bookings with an audio guide. Special openings for groups are possible upon request outside the regular opening hours of the palaces. The price for a special opening consists of the group price, a special opening fee, and, if applicable, additional personnel costs.

All information is subject to availability and changes. Group prices are only valid in conjunction with the General Terms and Conditions for Groups of the Prussian Palaces and Gardens Foundation Berlin-Brandenburg. All prices mentioned are exempt from VAT according to § 4 No. 20a UStG.

The group rate for students applies uniformly to school and youth groups, including vocational schools and universities, up to the age of 27. It is necessary for the booker to indicate in writing during the booking process that it concerns a school or youth group. Furthermore, written confirmation must be provided that the age restriction will be adhered to. A maximum number of participants, including teachers and chaperones, applies to school and youth groups. If this number is exceeded, the class will be divided into two groups.
