Group Offers New Chambers of Sanssouci

To the info page of the venue

Located directly next to Sanssouci Palace, the New Chambers served Frederick the Great as a magnificent guest palace, which the king had redesigned from a former orangery building in 1771–74. The rich, late Rococo interior decoration has been preserved.
Splendid festival halls with luxurious interior decoration were created in the New Chambers – as the palace was known thereafter. Guest apartments, whose marquetry chambers are particularly notable, were located on the west side. The rich interior design of the New Chambers is of exquisite beauty and quality.
The terraces and parterres of Sanssouci Palace may also be viewed during the integrated tour of the park.

We provide the following group offers:

  • Entrance New Chambers of Sanssouci

New from 2024: In the context of digitalisation, we are focusing on the "Bring Your Own Device" trend in the New Chambers of Sanssouci. Plan your visit and download the APP New Chambers of Sanssouci in advance via the APP Store and GooglePlay. This means that visitors no longer have to rely on an audio or multimedia guide from the Prussian Palaces and Gardens Foundation, but can simply download the tour as a group onto their own mobile devices. Of course, free Wi-Fi is available to guests in the Palaces so that they can also access the digital audio guide on site with their own mobile devices.

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.

Important notice for school and youth groups

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.
