Group Offers Paretz Palace

Each year in summer, Queen Luise and her family moved to Paretz. As an early Neoclassical synthesis of the arts, the ensemble of the palace and village formed a charming backdrop for the royal family’s annual summer stays from 1797–1805. David Gilly created the palace and the entire location as an ideal country estate, according to the wishes of the royal couple. The original wallpapers that are preserved at Paretz Palace are of extraordinary importance. Like few other places, Paretz is wonderfully suited to a country excursion. An attractive special exhibition of coaches, sleighs and sedan chairs that were used by the Prussian royal house has been on display in the coach house since the end of 2006.

We offer the following group tour:

  • Paretz Palace and the Royal Coach House
    Highlights of the guided tour: the Reception Hall, the Garden Room, the Vestibule
