Group Offers Schönhausen House

To the info page of the venue

Schönhausen House opened in the Berlin-Pankow district in 2009 after nearly five years of restoration. Schönhausen occupies a unique position in the monument landscape of Berlin, because the Baroque palace that has remayned intact over the course of centuries was repeatedly an important scene for German history and politics.
Queen Elisabeth Christine, the wife of Frederick the Great, cultivated an elegant court life at Schönhausen in the 18th century and it shifted back into focus in the early years of the GDR during the 20th century,s Cold War.
The house played an important historical role once again as the negotiation site of the “Two Plus Four Agreement” (Treaty on the Final Settlement with Respect to Germany) during German Reunification.
The exhibition shows this varied use, offering a tour through the last three centuries of German history that is rich in contrasts. Luxurious Baroque interiors, such as the extensively restored Garden Hall and the expansive staircases, as well as rooms from the GDR period arranged true to the originals, are among other rooms worth mentioning.

We offer the following group tours:

  • Schönhausen House audio guide tour
  • Schönhausen House guided tour

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.
