Group Offers New Palace

To the info page of the venue

The New Palace completes the western section of Sanssouci Park. Like nearly no other building in Germany, this structure offers insight into the luxury of the royal style of living. Built by Frederick the Great as a summer palace, the New Palace is an absolute highlight on any tour, because of its magnificent interior decoration. The Grotto Hall, decorated with valuable rocks and shells, and the Royal Suites are particularly worth seeing. Because the last German emperor, William II , intermittently lived at the New Palace and had several modern conveniences installed, among other objects, visitors are able to view a bathroom dating from that period.

We offer the following group tours:

  • New Palace guided tour
  • New Palace audio guide tour
  • New Palace Imperial Christmas (bookable from Thursday to Sunday in the period from 23.11.-30.12.2023)

King’s Apartment

During the summer festival season, when befriended rulers and family members of Frederick the Great were accommodated in the palace, the king himself lived in an apartment built for him in the south-east wing. Due to its magnificent furnishings, the flat is one of the highlights of Frederician interior design and can be visited during the summer season as part of special guided tours.

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.

All information provided is subject to availability of offers and changes. Prices for groups are only valid in connection with the Stiftung Preußische Schlösser und Gärten Berlin-Brandenburg's (SPSG's) General Terms and Conditions for groups.

All prices quoted are exempt from VAT/sales tax according to German law (§ 4 Nr. 20a UstG).


Important note for school and youth groups:

The reduced flat rate for groups/school classes is valid for school groups (aged 27 or younger), including vocational schools and universities. When booking a reservation, the purchaser is obliged to indicate in writing that the group in question is a school or youth group. Furthermore, the purchaser must state in writing that the age restriction is adhered to, as noted above. School and youth groups, including the teacher and other accompanying persons, must also abide by the maximum number of participants allowed on each tour. If the group number exceeds the limit, the class will be divided into two groups.
