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.Source: spsg.de/schloesser-gaerten/objekt/marmorpalais
