Group Offers New Palace

No barrier-free access

Due to a technical fault with the lift, the New Palace is not accessible for (electric) wheelchair users until further notice. We are endeavouring to rectify the fault as quickly as possible and ask for your understanding until then.

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

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.

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.
