This palace is a lot more spectacular than what it looks like from the outside. You can only visit via a tour which is engaging and littered with lots of interesting historic facts and little details. You slide around on stunning parquetry floors in felt shoes and get a real feel for the history of the place and the characters/families who lived here. The restorations were done beautifully and a lot is still in its original splendour, lots of historic art and pieces. The tour guide also managed to link in Berlin's history and other castles for context. Thoroughly enjoyed the visit and walk in the gardens. The nearby pyramid was used as a chiller. The old temple ruins were the kitchen, the urn in the garden holds the ashes of the 8 year old who perished and which was recovered by divers in the lake. There is a grotto and a ferry terminal nearby. This visit and Cecilienhof 15 min walk away make for a great 3-4 hour visit. Do Sanssouci/Neues Palais another day.

We visited this Palace in August 2019. Visits are by tour only and we arrived to the last tour of the day. It is really pleasant to wander through the park to arrive at the Palace. While waiting for the tour, we marvelled at the painted verandahs. We were only 8 in total on the tour, which was in German but we had the audio-guide. We don't often take audio-guides, but found it really well done and interesting. As always, you had the option to have more detail if you wanted for many items, but the basic info was sufficient. The Palace is beautiful and there is a lot to see. We believe this well worth visiting.

This was my favorite of the five palaces which I was able to see in the Potsdam area. The guide was fascinating with her stories of the Beautiful Wilhelmina and Friedrich William II, nephew and heir to Frederick the Great. This palace was built between 1789 and 1791 in the neo-classic style. Refreshing after all the Baroque and Rococo styles over at Sans Souci! The interiors are exquisite. It is a short walk from Cecelienhof, maybe 10 minutes, through lovely parkland and along the river, and very much worth the exercise! I wish I had bought a ticket in order to take photos.

The grounds are well groomed and the view on the back side of the Marble house overlooking Heiliger Lake is beautiful.

All tours are lead with guides only. There is an additional fee, beyond the entrance price, if you want to take pictures inside. There are audio guides in english, but when I inquired the lady at the counter did not state if there was a fee for the audio guides or not. The next tour was not for another two hours and since the staff person seemed pre-occupied, I departd without seeing the museum.

The atmosphere was not very cordial, so I can"t say that I would recommend.

This was difficult to get to, but worth doing. Better on a guided tour rather than on ones own. Be sure to buy a €3 photo pass before entry. The pass is stamped with the date and so is valid all day in other Potsdam attractions too, which was very handy.

Cosy and well decorated rooms - I loved the floors.
The tour which is provided by a guide from the castle will take about 40 mins. Plenty of tours are in German language only but audioguides are available.

This palace was occupied by the German royals until 1917. The interiors are a marvel of decorative arts. It is set in beautiful gardens on the shore of the Helliger See. The restoration taking many years was completed in 2009, is careful and authentic. The delightful approach walking through the gardens along the lake is free of tourist crowds.

Very nice visit, the palace is very beautiful and even the view from it is very nice. Too bad one has to walk all the way there (I imagine not so pleasant in winter) and the tour is mandatory and not always in English.

Although I was rather tired by the time I reached this palace after visiting various other Potsdam attractions, I am really glad I made the effort to get there. I walked through the Neue Garten from Cecilienhof, which is an excellent walk, but few others seem to do this.
The customer service at the palace was excellent - so much better than the bad experience i'd had at the other palace where you need to wear the slippers. My guide was very new (I believe it was her first day), but she had a very pleasant disposition and was happy to go around at the pace that a visitor might desire. The audio guides were very informative, and made it clear which parts of the displays were original, and which were reproductions (something many museums seem to avoid doing).
With it being quiet it was easy to take photos and view the key attractions without waiting for others to move away.

A very nice wee palace that sits right next too the lake which is quite almost hidden within the neuer garten, but it is very lovely, also has a interesting kitchen that is built as a sunken temple worthwhile to look at while wandering the garden
