Great performance for the New Palace. From mid-June, the new exhibition celebrating the 100th anniversary of the fall of the Prussian monarchy in 1918 will be shown there, and extensive restoration work is underway.
The renovation of the New Palace in Potsdam, Germany, has cost 27 million euros (33 million dollars) in recent years, the endowment responsible for Prussian palaces and gardens said. So far, several key areas, including the famous marble hall, have been renovated in the 970-room palace, which is located just outside of Berlin.
The restoration of the marble hall, which is unique in Europe, ended in 2016 and cost nearly 5 million euros. Renovations are set to continue in a second wave of investments in the coming years and will first focus on the palace theatre.
