Baroque splendor as far as the eye can see - the New Palace in Potsdam is very impressive. And yet only few tourists get to enjoy it - a mistake because they are really missing out.
Should you visit Sanssouci Palace in Potsdam then you'll soon notice that you hardly get the chance to experience the rooms in quiet and peace. That's because in Potsdam Frederick the Great's private retreat is the most popular tourist attraction after the Babelsberg film studios. "Old King Frederick" has another place built, the New Palace which is located on the other side of the park. It was his biggest palace, shining in extravagant splendor. And yet there no waiting lines to get in, because his former guest house is nearly as famous as Sanssouci Palace.
DW reporter Elisabeth Yorck von Wartenburg when she visited the New Palace could enjoy it all to herself. Follow her through the splendid halls and across the palace compound. You can take a good look around, and discover the New Palace for yourself.
