Group Offers New Chambers Palace

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.

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.
