The Picture Gallery of Sanssouci is one of the oldest surviving royal museum buildings in Germany. The harmonious accord of interior design and individual works of art distinguishes what is a rather inconspicuous building on the exterior.
Floors made of yellow and white marble with colored stone inlays, ancient and Baroque sculptures, as well as gilded ornamentation and stuccowork allegories of the arts and sciences high above the heads of the visitors interact with the densely hung paintings.

Today, in addition to paintings from Frederick’s original collection, works from other Prussian palaces are also on display. Among the highlights are Caravaggio’s “Doubting Thomas,” Anthony van Dyck’s “The Descent of the Holy Spirit (Pentecost)” and works by Peter Paul Rubens.

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.
