New palace

Recommended
The construction of this impressive palace was commissioned by Frederick the Great who wanted to demonstrate that the economic might of Prussia had remained intact after emerging victorious from the arduous Seven Years War. Some 213m/700ft-long and home to 400 rooms dripping with sculpture and architectural details, it is the epitome of extravagance and ostentation. The unbridled Baroque style of the exterior now strikes the onlooker as affected and unnecessary, particularly when compared with the simplicity of Sanssouci.
