    Erected from 1787 to 1793 under Friedrich Wilhelm II. Worthwhile in all seasons, especially because of the perfect location on the lake.

    The Marble Palace is romantically situated on a terrace complex directly on the lake shore in the New Garden. The musically inclined and the ideas of the Rosicrucian king connected castle and garden served as a private retreat.

    marble palace
    The Marble Palace in the New Garden in Potsdam was the summer palace of King Friedrich Wilhelm II of Prussia. The architects Carl von Gontard, Carl Gotthard Langhans and Michael Philipp Boumann built it in the early classicist style in the years 1787-1793 and 1797 in an English park laid out by Johann August Eyserbeck close to the banks of the The "new house" was the private life of the musically talented reserved for the king. With this new building, the nephew and successor of Frederick the Great, who remained childless, distanced himself spatially and architecturally from his little-loved uncle, who throughout his life preferred rococo forms with Palladian overtones. At the same time, however, it is the stylistic continuation of a pleasure palace (of the baroque maison de plainsance type) into the new age of classicism, similar to the somewhat earlier Wörlitz-Heiligen See palace.

    A wildly romantic place and (currently) not overcrowded.


    The Marble Palace is romantically situated on a terrace directly on the lakeshore in the New Garden. King Friedrich Wilhelm II had the building, clad in Silesian marble, built as a summer residence in 1787–1793. His architect Carl von Gontard created the first and only Prussian royal palace in the style of early classicism. The musically inclined king, who was connected to the ideas of the Rosicrucians, served the palace and garden as a private retreat.

    The special atmosphere of the New Garden still inspires its visitors today: The spacious complex, designed according to the English model, offers wide views of the Havel landscape up to the Pfaueninsel with the castle. The many small, mystical garden architectures such as the pyramid tell of the preferences of the former residents.

    The marble palace was built towards the end of the 18th century in the early classical style. It initially served as the summer residence of the Prussian King Friedrich Wilhelm II. The building was used by the Hohenzollern dynasty with varying intensity until the end of the monarchy.

    The palace was built by Carl von Gontard in 1789-1791 as a summer residence for King Friedrich Wilhelm II on the banks of the Holy See. With the palace, classical architecture found its way into Prussia. The cubic brick building was clad with architectural elements made of Silesian marble, which gave the house its name.

    A stop here is worthwhile. The building has something and the lines of sight are also wonderful.
