4.2/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web
The last great Prussian Baroque palace, Neues Palais was a royal playground complete with a theater and several stunning rooms, including Grotto Hall, where the walls are encrusted with marble, quartz, seashells, and stones. The theater is still in use on the second floor, but before you attend a performance, tour the maze of rooms. Your ticket includes access to four grand staterooms, royal apartments, and a tour of the theater. A performance will require a separate ticket. Take advantage of good weather by walking the palace grounds with the Comuns, which housed the servants and the kitchen, and a park where statuary, fountains, and pathways break through the greenery.

  • There are plenty of attractions, the time is somewhat limited, so we didn't see as much as we wanted. But it was very enjoyable, what we saw of it.

  • My husband and I went from the hop on hop off tour and didn't even go inside - we were just completely blown away by the whole thing. 
  • A visit (guided) worth. The facade is very beautiful. But more impressive is the interior. Each room is awesome! Very luxurious, with paintings, and marbles, not missing the finishes in gold and multifaceted buffs. FANTASTIC! And the story of Frederick, his lack of hygiene, your generosity, your lack of offspring, his wife never had entered in this Palace, makes the visit an unforgettable experience.

  • Great audio guides here in english. They also have a kids version that you can play which is actually more entertaining than the stuffy adult version. Sounds like it is voiced by Dr. Who. The rooms are very impressive.
  • The building is under renovation, but still open to public. You may purchase one ticket for this palace and the Sanssouci Palace at the same time, in this way you don't have to get in line once more to purchase ticket, and the ticket print the schedule for both places, you can get in both buildings according the pre-arranged schedule, save time. This two story building, decorated with hundreds of sculptures and more than 200 richly decorated rooms, make it one of Germany's most beautiful palaces. The Rococo interior is the best. Luxurious ceremonial halls, magnificent galleries and richly designed private suites. Take a good look at the first floor great hall which is very detailed decorated with different shells on the ceiling and wall.
  • It was very beautiful and there was no nearly enough time to take pictures. FYI, it cost 3 euro to take photos inside, however the photo bracelets are good at all palaces once purchased provided you visit all the palaces in one day. Also, they have pay toilets. The varies by location.
  • Great place for a day trip from Berlin. Beautiful palace grounds, bring a picnic!
  • nice palace. worth buying the combi ticket to visit all palaces in the park
