Group Offers Marble Palace

William II had the New Garden designed as an English landscape park and had the Marble Palace built on the bank of the lake called the Heiliger See. The highpoint of Prussian Neoclassicism can be experienced at the Marble Palace, whose interiors have recently been completely restored. The palace is richly decorated and designed with sumptuous materials. Of particular note are the fireplaces, which Frederick William II had purchased for him in Italy. The small chambers paneled with exotic woods and the Middle Eastern Cabinet, which appears like the interior of a Turkish tent, are particularly worth mentioning. One of the most important collections of Wedgwood ceramics in Germany can be admired on the fireplace mantels.

Booking Policies

We offer a flat rate for groups limited to a maximum number of participants. The group rate always includes fees for group admission to the individual palaces, as well as a personal tour guide or audio guides.

If the number of participants exceeds the maximum size allowed, the group will be divided. Each group is allotted an admission time. The group flat rate is calculated per tour group. At some palaces, we offer a surplus fee up to a specific number of participants for the second guided tour. The surplus fee flat rate cannot be booked as an individual service.

There is no minimum number of participants required for a group tour.

Guided tours can be booked in a variety of languages. The bookings of a respective language are carried out subject to availability of tour guides and cannot be guaranteed.

We offer a 10 % discount from the group price for the groups accompanied by a guide licensed by the SPSG. The discount does not apply to group bookings / group tours with audio guide.

Special arrangements for groups outside the scheduled opening hours are possible on request. In addition to the group fee for a guided tour, extra charges apply for a special opening.
